Important: A supervisory controller reports an offline alarm in a fixed period of time when an associated field controller goes offline. For a hard-wired field controller, this time period is usually 20 seconds. For a wireless-enabled field controller within the ZFR183x Pro Series Wireless Field Bus system, this time period can be as much as five minutes.

The FX80 and SNC are web-enabled, Ethernet-based, supervisory controllers that connect BAS networks to IP networks and the web. Supervisory controllers provide scheduling, alarm and event management, trending, energy management, data exchange, dial-out capability, and password protection.

Supervisory controllers interface with field controllers on a ZFR Pro Network through a WRG Gateway. Depending on the capacity of the device, it can support up to eight WRG Gateways.The WRG can also report to the FX Server on a PC over BACnet IP.
