Aspect-Matrix MAX

Aspect-Matrix MAX

The Aspect-Matrix MAX Area Controller is a base hardware platform designed to provide flexible area control applications to a building automation system. Through the use of AAM's Facilitating Technology, the Aspect-Matrix MAX Area Controller has the ability to provide traditional control features such as alarming, trending, scheduling, and extensive custom programming. In addition, it integrates with popular internet programs to allow end-users more freedom. With Aspect, your PC, tablet, or smart device can integrate with your building easily and efficiently.

Also included are features such as the ability to push and pull data with popular networked databases, and to serve graphical user interface pages - thus eliminating the need for a dedicated operator workstation or expensive add-on software to view a system.
