Cinema 3.4.0 - Update Project - 320 KB - MD5: 63b627ede9c8a79710ddb3d7fd3ca852

+ Allow you to query the temperature sensor via a HTTP Request.  A JSON representation of the device will be returned.

As of now the only available devices are Type28 and Type7E...

Type28 is the temperature probe and Type7E is the environmental sensor.

To enable this you will need to set the AppData/Cinema/WebServer/Port registry key. The JNIOR will need to be rebooted after this key has been changed. In this example I chose 8081. Port 80 or 443 is normally the default web server port. This web server port is an additional web server that cinema is hosting to handle these types of requests.

  • Fixed a bug that stopped the serial port from being read if an Ethernet connection was disconnected. This appears to be a bug that was introduced in version 5.3.
  • Moved the serial configuration to take advantage of the AUXSerial and COMSerial settings that JANOS uses.

It’s been 5 months since the release of 1.7.1. We finally had a reason to touch JANOS. We implemented the JMP protocol. JMP (JANOS Management Protocol) is the same JSON messaging structure that is used in our weboscket protocol.

If you are going, please stop by and visit us at booth 2615A in the Augustus Ballroom.

New for this year are some software updates as we continue to advance the JNIOR automation controller to handle more devices, more communication protocols and to be more robust than ever!  We continue to expand our capability to control LED strip lights, LED down lamps and DMX devices and provide more ways to monitor temperature and humidity.  Integrating the JNIOR with various third party systems such as Q-SYS, Barco, Dolby, Christie, etc. will be getting easier.

Bruce, Kevin  and I will be in our new booth.  If you want to set-up an appointment to meet with us at the show, please reply to this email with a date and time good for you.

Your favorite online retailer now sells the JNIOR! Go to Amazon to pick one up!  You can get all of our models as well as a kit that includes the power supply.

The Series 3 JNIOR continues to be a reliable workhorse in a number of industries. The Series 3 models (310, 312, and 314) however no longer represent the performance, reliability and stability of the current JNIOR controller line. We no longer produce them. While you would likely benefit from an upgrade to a Series 4 model (410, 412, or 414), doing so is still your decision. The change is almost seamless. Just know that INTEG will dedicate itself to the success of your conversion with the same attention and personal support that you have always experienced.

Just a few added benefits of the Series 4:

  • Secure network connection using HTTPS, STARTTLS, etc.
  • Faster execution making applications more responsive.
  • Boots in only a few seconds.
  • Dynamic Configuration Pages (DCP) replaces the Java Applet panel.
  • Emphasis on Security.
  • Simpler approach to application programming makes user programming even more feasible.
  • Enhanced WebServer provides for the development of state of the art Web interfaces.
  • Supports server-side scripting (PHP).
  • Provides Websockets alternative to the binary JNIOR Protocol.
  • And much more…

You may not know that we are creating a JNIOR Model 412 that supports the DMX512 protocol for lighting control. Basically a DMX Output port replaces the AUX serial port that we find normally on the JNIOR. This will be dubbed the JNIOR 412DMX.

An initial prototype was completed and tested. It is functional. However, an issue in the mechanical mounting of the required 5-pin XLR connector necessitated a revision. By the slightest amount the connector interfered with the enclosure cover when mounted on the main PCB. While some creative machining could accommodate the connector it is not the proper way to do it. So the revision lowers the connector in an arrange as shown here. This should do just fine. We will see in a week or so.

This also avoids an issue that Kevin pointed out where the release tab was sitting higher than the unit. It could easily be damaged or damage something else. Here we see that it will be safely below the top of the cover.

In case you couldn’t picture the issue I show it here with the interference highlighted in yellow. You can also see how the release tab is inconveniently placed.

The solution adds a little cost but is the proper implementation.

I’ve located the entire DMX512 ISOLATED circuit on that little piece of PCB so this could be used by other product models.

The PCBs will be in this week and I’ll have to build a set. I milled one housing this morning and mounted the XLR connector to see how it likes its new home.

Now let’s hope that the PCB arrangement lines the connector up for this.

Yeah so the R01 boards are in. The revision was needed to move that XLR connector down. Perhaps you are mechanically inclined and can imagine what is involved in placing the DMX connector on the side of the enclosure. You need to reference the dimensions through the plastic housing and up through the PCB mounts and then onto the daughter board. So even though it can be done you are never 100% certain that you have it right until.. the hardware shows up.

So there is joy! Time to celebrate with some whiskey, right? :mrgreen:

This is an ISOLATED DMX512 Output port. The isolation transformer is a tall component and that’s what that square recess is for. It will sit there. All of the RS-485 hardware and isolation is on that small PCB. The connector just carries Rx, Tx, Gnd, 3.3V and CHASIS connections. And that board will let me put these XLR connectors side-by-side for a product that has multiple outputs.

Well I’ve populated the DMX module. Everything looks good except I need to used a slightly taller pin header. Not a problem.

The 412DMX is ready to go. I just need to pull the package together for production.

This prototype has 20 seconds of ride-thru power backup and 128MB of Flash storage. The 5-pin standard DMX XLR connector sits perfectly now in place of the usual AUX port.

 

Did you know that I have been tweeting my progress with the 412DMX (hastag #412DMX) on Twitter? Follow us @integpg. :D

I’ve been machining the first enclosure for this. There’s a video of some of it on YouTube.
