Trend IQ3 driver enables communication between IQ3 series controllers and Niagara powered devices, including Vykon Jace, Honeywell Hawk, Trend TONN, JCI FX, Distech Controls EC-Net. Same driver is used in Jace or in Supervisor.
The IQ3 series range includes different models of controllers, with expandable point counts ranging from 16 I/O to 128 I/O for IQ3Xcite and specific point counts for IQ3Xact. The IQ3 Trend LAN controllers maintain all of the features of the IQ3XCITE range, however they use the Trend proprietary LAN for backward compatibility with IQ2 controllers. IQ3 controllers utilize Text Comms protocol to communicate with the front-end software.
The driver makes use of variety of protocol features in order to optimise traffic. Packet grouping minimizes the amount of driver to controller requests making the communication robust and efficient. Driver integration process is easy and straightforward.
