JNIOR Advantages

What makes the JNIOR a smart alternative to traditional logic controllers?

It’s truly turnkey. The JNIOR is easy to install and includes free standard applications providing a variety of functionality. You can even develop your own applications and web pages for the JNIOR using free software samples.

It’s flexible. The JNIOR can be a standalone controller or integrates easily with other applications, and it’s expandable as your needs change.

Handles a variety of communication methods. The JNIOR can integrate with your application via a variety of communication methods including MQTT for IIoT applications, Modbus, serial communications, JNIOR TCP protocol and any custom protocol used for your private applications.

It’s cost-effective. Our customers often tell us they can purchase a JNIOR for one-third the cost of a similar PLC. Plus, there’s no need to pay for additional software or services.

It’s backed by reliable service. We provide prompt, friendly free technical support and training for JNIOR users. Remote support is quickly done via Team Viewer or other remote connection tool.

Because the JNIOR can function as a stand-alone controller or as a basic I/O for integration with another application or system, it’s suitable for extremely diverse uses and industries.  More than 60,000 of the JNIOR logic controller devices are currently being used worldwide to control and monitor equipment in many different applications.  The JNIOR reliability is over 99.9%.  They just don’t fail!

The Automation Controller That Works for Every Industry

The flexibility of the JNIOR makes it tremendously adaptable.  For example, movie theaters around the world rely on it as a proven, cost-effective solution for digital cinema automation.  For industrial automation, INTEG focuses on the automation of manufacturing and data acquisition, including the IIoT.  The JNIOR implements the MQTT protocol which allows the JNIOR to interact with a variety of IIoT applications, including Amazon Web Services (AWS).  The INTEG JNIOR automation controller is a cost-effective alternative for small I/O count applications in industrial processes compared to general purpose controllers, PLCs, PACs and computers.  It is equally useful as a data acquisition system.

The JNIOR can also function as a highly effective utility usage monitor, creating opportunities to save on utility costs.  

Flex Metrics Smart Factory

Flex Metrics uses the JNIOR in a variety of ways to make “smart factories”. The JNIOR helps automate data collection and bring the data and analysis to those who can use it to make intelligent decisions.

Lightning Detection and Siren Suppression

H2Solutions is using the JNIOR to keep neighbors happy around a golf course. Using the Boltek Lightning Detection and the JNIOR neighbors are enjoying a good night sleep by not being woken by golf course sirens during nightly storms. The JNIOR keeps the siren from sounding off using built in scheduling. The JNIOR also helps provide real-time alerts to Internet based web services.

Gas Detection

H2Solutions also monitors OTIS Instruments gas monitoring equipment to send real-time alerts to Internet based web services. OTIS instruments can monitor several different hazardous gases as well as oil and gas.

Cloud-based remote monitoring solutions for municipal and industrial manufacturing systems​

Data-Command uses the JNIOR, rebranded as LYNX, to provide real-time cloud based information for waste water, water storage, lift station and oil and gas. Sign up to use their web portal to view your data in real-time and get alerts.

Flour Flow Totalization

A customer uses the JNIOR, actually a few JNIORs, to monitor flows from flour source silos to the flour destination silos. Using a solid flow meter they are able to totalize the types of flour used from the source and which products the flour is used in when it reaches the destination. Reports are generated and reports are sent out at the end of each job.

Line Side Printing

Let the JNIOR print your labels, including bar codes, automatically at the end of your production line. The JNIOR works with a variety of label printers including those from Zebra and SATO.   Click here to read the brochure.

Using the JNIOR Line Side Printing web page, you can configure your labels with bar codes, QR codes, text, data wild cards, and enter a list of part numbers to be added to each label, along with the date and sequential number.  Label configurations can be stored on the JNIOR and transferred easily to other JNIORs.

Simply wire a signal from your production line to the JNIOR input (or multiplex multiple signals) to select the part number to use, and the label will be printed on the printer immediately.  The JNIOR works via serial or Ethernet connections to Zebra, SATO and other printers.

Then, using a barcode scanner attached to the JNIOR, verify that the operator attached the correct label.
