iSMA Supervisor

iSMA Supervisor allows the networking of multiple Niagara based MAC36NL, JACE-8000 and Niagara Edge controllers, along with other IP-based controllers and field devices. It enables the design, configuration and maintenance of a unified, real-time controls network.

iSMA Supervisor for Server-level Control
The iSMA Supervisor is part of a portfolio of controller/server products, software applications and tools powered by the Niagara Framework®. It provides server-level functions for a network of MAC36NL, JACE-8000, Niagara Edge, and other field devices configured to achieve energy performance goals, occupant comfort and other desired outcomes. The Niagara Supervisor serves real-time graphical information to standard web browser clients and performs essential functions such as analytics, centralized data logging/trending, archiving to external databases, alarming, dashboarding, system navigation, master scheduling, database management, and integration with other enterprise software applications.

Visualization & Analytics
The custom user interfaces you design to serve relevant data to end users has a huge impact on project success. To support efficient UI development, Niagara not only offers visualization improvements of the HTML5 standard but also supports tag-based graphics.

Easy Provisioning
Your productivity is important to us. We want Niagara users to sail through essential software configuration and maintenance tasks like managing station and platform users, security settings, and disaster recovery backups. Niagara Supervisor’s System Database minimizes the time needed to bring remote Niagara instances under supervisory control. From the Niagara Supervisor, you can do efficient batch provisioning to install upgrades to JACE and Edge firmware to enter security credentials, and to set up applications and commissioning options. You can also save steps by taking advantage of built-in software templates and templating features.

Cyber Defense
We make security settings configurable so that all Niagara instances can be customized to adhere to organizational security policies related to user account management, public key infrastructure (PKI) and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) integration, password expiration policies, and more. We make cyber security visible through the Niagara Security Dashboard, a centralized, easy-to-read and actionable view of the security posture of your entire Niagara infrastructure.

Intelligent Edge
The trend today is for supervisory controllers, like the Niagara Supervisor, to distribute more control and management tasks to intelligent edge devices. You can better optimize the performance of specific equipment and subsystems when you can collect and analyze operational data at a finer granularity, in greater volumes and across longer periods with edge devices, like the MAC36NL controller or Edge 10.

Connectivity & Cloud
Enterprise leaders and building owners/operators are waking up to how valuable their operational data is when it comes to achieving outcomes like greater comfort, productivity, and energy savings. To make the most of it, they need to integrate Building Automation System (BAS) data and other sensor-acquired environmental data with their enterprise systems and applications. With its large collection of Tridium-developed and third-party-developed drivers, Niagara Framework is one of the surest routes to achieving data interoperability with other applications and databases.

There are Niagara drivers and APIs to integrate with the most popular work order management and operational data analytics packages.

Niagara MQTT driver now supports easy integration with public clouds such as AWS (Amazon Web Services) and Google cloud. And, Tridium’s JSON Toolkit makes it easy to construct bespoke messages into required formats for cloud communication.

Certification & Compliance
Tridium works with the building automation industry standards body BACnet® to test and certify Niagara configurations. For example, Niagara 4 releases of Niagara Framework and underlying JACE hardware are BACnet Advanced Workstation (B-AWS) and BACnet Building Controller (B-BC) compliant.
