The NAE85 is a software-only Metasys network engine that runs on a Windows Server. The NAE85 provides most of the same functions and capabilities as the hardware network engine models, but with a much higher point capacity.

  • Metasys CGE and FAC4911 series general purpose application controllers
  • Metasys CVE and VMA1930 series VAV box controllers

  • Metasys CGM series general purpose controllers
  • Metasys CVM series VAV box controllers
  • Metasys FEC, FAC, and VMA16/17/18 series field equipment controllers
  • TEC series networked thermostats
The NAE85 also supports building-wide integrations using the following VND type integration drivers:

The NAE85 also supports up to eight third-party integrations using the following integration drivers:
