OPC Data Conversion
The FieldServer OPC Server installs on a windows computer and functions in the same way as all other OPC Servers in its ability to serve data to clients on the same or networked computers. However, its data source is a FieldServer connected via an Ethernet network. The FieldServer can be loaded with any FieldServer drivers (over 100 protocols supported) and can access data from Fire Panels, HVAC equipment, PLCs and many other devices.
The S4 Group: N2 OPC Server is a product aimed at making JCI Metasys N2 by JCI data available as OPC data. When connected to a N2 network , it scans all the devices and automates the mapping of all data points to OPC data.
Block diagrams for both solutions are show below.
We have module solutions which allow integration directly into OPC products as well as the stand alone solutions shown bottom right.

The S4 Open: OPC-N2 Router offers flexibility and cost savings when integrating legacy Metasys® N2 by JCI networks to Open Systems. The OPC-N2 Router avoids costly replacement or re-engineering of existing devices on legacy N2 buses. Typical Applications would be to bring data from the Metasys® N2 by JCI network into OPC-based enterprise applications, energy management applications, or adding best-of-breed OPC-based head end systems and HMIs from Johnson Controls or 3rd parties to legacy Metasys® by JCI installations.
