Users commission, configure and access the Smart Equipment Controller through the Johnson Controls Mobile Access Portal (MAP) Gateway. This optional, pocket-sized portable Web server and Wi-Fi hot spot automatically discovers all connected devices in a system and allows for faster equipment set-up and commissioning.

Dan Tyson, product manager, indoor packaged equipment, Applied DX Systems at Johnson Controls, explained:

The MAP home page provides an at-a-glance view of each piece of connected equipment. Users can troubleshoot performance issues, review trends, address alarms and edit schedules anytime, anywhere, on any device.

The SEC features patented proportional adaptive control (P-Adaptive) and pattern recognition adaptive control (PRAC) technologies that provide continuous loop tuning. The controller is ideal for new construction applications, including K-12 education buildings, office/business spaces and hotels, says Johnson Controls.
