The MATRIX is an IoT (Internet of Things) embedded ASPECT® Control Engine designed to provide flexible site control applications for medium to large scale building automation systems. It can be used to connect with Cylon CB Series and AAM NB Series of BACnet® MS/TP field level controllers. The MATRIX supports serial communications protocols such as BACnet®, AAM PUP, and Modbus®. Additionally, TCP/IP communications using FT/Net, BACnet®, Modbus® and Cylon’s Unitron (when used with the UC32.netK) protocols are available when using the RJ-45 connection.


A capacity based licensing model makes the MATRIX family of controllers scalable for medium to large buildings applications, including a campus environment when combined with the ASPECT®-Enterprise server software. The MATRIX provides network management and integration of the supported field level RS-485 and TCP/IP communication protocols.

When deployed with embedded ASPECT® Runtime Engine, the MATRIX is capable of supervisory-based control functions including but not limited to energy management routines, custom sequencing, alarm and event annunciation, historical alarming and trending, and master control scheduling. Additionally, streaming of live connected data is displayed rich HTML5 graphics using a web browser.

ASPECT® uses secure web technologies to enrich the user experience through common internet applications for alarm annunciation and scheduling. Receive alarms either from the integrated alarm console or through e-mail clients, or Twitter®. Schedule your building equipment through an integrated scheduler or by using common scheduling platforms such as Microsoft® Outlook®, Apple iCal, Google Calendar™.
