We have received questions regarding Legacy Jace Controllers and the ability to upgrade them to Niagara 4.6 and the below Honeywell Bulletins sent out over the last year have addressed this.
Honeywell Bulletin 17-0035 - Dated 09.26.2017 - WEB-600 & WEB-700 | End of Life Notice
Honeywell Bulletin 18-0005 - Dated 02.15.2018 - WEB-300E & WEB-600E | End of Life Notice
Honeywell Bulletin 18-0025 - Dated 05.15.2018 - Release Notice of WEBs-N4.4 | Release Notice
Bulletin 17-0035 announced End of Life for the listed equipment and stated that the performance would be limited on any of the specified legacy Controller when using WEBs-N4.x software. However, the main purpose of Honeywell Bulletin 17-0035 was to announce the Trade-Up program, offering a discount to customers wishing to upgrade to the newest Jace 8000, so as to allow the customer to gain the benefits of the upgraded systems without paying the full price. Honeywell even offered the Trade-Up for non-WEBs branded controllers. Details of the Trade-Up program also outlined that the SMA from any Legacy Controller would not be transferable to the new JACE-8000 purchased via the Trade-Up program.
Bulletin 18-0005 announced the End of Life for the listed Controllers.
Bulletin 18-0025, announcing the release of WEBs-N4.4, it stated “While this will be the last minor build to support the legacy WEB-300E, WEB-600, WEB-600E and WEB-700 platforms, there are added enhancements to improve stability”.
Tridium and Honeywell support most applications of legacy Jaces to 4.4
Upgrade of a Legacy Jace past 4.4 or even possibly 3.8 in some cases, may cause the device to not function properly depending on how large of a system is deployed and how many typical drivers are loaded
Jackson Control recommends to replace all Jace 600s and 700s with a Jace 8000 when installing any version of Niagara 4.
