This document describes how to:

  • commission a Network Control Engine (NCE) or a Network Automation Engine (NAE) for network connectivity in several network scenarios
  • access the Metasys system Site Management Portal UI on an NAE
  • configure the basic NAE parameters for initial operation on the network
  • enable or disable Advanced Security and Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (https)
  • troubleshoot an NAE
  • configure the NAE DDAs for sending alarm and event messages through email and SNMP
  • configure a Syslog DDA for sending events and audits to an external Syslog server

This document does not describe how to mount, wire, or power on an NAE . For that type of information, consult the respective installation guide. Also, this document does not describe how to build or download an archive database for a Metasys system site or how to configure an NAE to monitor and control a building automation system (BAS). For those procedures, refer to Metasys SCT Help (LIT-12011964) .

Note: In this document, NAE refers to all NCE25, NAE35, NAE45, NAE45-Lite, NAE55, and NAE85 models, unless noted otherwise. Also, the term small-capacity engine refers to any NCE25, NAE35, NAE45, or NAE45-Lite model, and the term large-capacity engine refers to any NAE55 or NAE85 model.

In addition to this document, refer to the following literature for information specific to your model of NAE:

  • NCE25 Series: refer to the NCE Technical Bulletin (LIT-12011267)
  • NAE85 Engine: refer to the NAE85 Commissioning Guide (LIT-12011044)
  • Secure NAE-S: refer to the NAE-S Commissioning Guide (LIT-12012269) , a confidential Johnson Controls document

For commissioning information about the newest network engine models, or for steps on how to replace an NAE with an SNE, or an NCE with an SNC, refer to the following literature:

  • SNE: refer to the SNE Commissioning Guide (LIT-12013352)
  • SNC: refer to the SNC Commissioning Guide (LIT-12013295)
