JENEsys 514 FAQs

Built on the company’s extensible Onyxx IP hardware platform by the Niagara Framework, the JENEsys Edge 514 is a fully programmable and licensed Niagara field and equipment controller with 14-I/o (inputs and outputs) on board and expandable I/O through the accompanying XM extension modules. The JENEsys Edge 514 is part of our growing Edge portfolio of controllers.

Leveraging the same Niagara Framework programming tools, Workbench and Fox Protocol, the JENEsys Edge 514 enables you to maximise your investment in Niagara and make use of a single layer and once platform across the entire building architecture. In addition, you’ll experience faster deployment times, reduced setup and management costs, reduced complxity and have the ability to add your own value-added applications. 

The unit is ideal for today’s small to mid-sized facilities, multi-site environments, plant and equipment control such as air handling units, roof top units, boilers, fan coil units, heat pumps and more and machine-to-machine applications. This powerful unit meets today’s requirements to connect, manage and control closer to where the data actually is whether it be equipment, a single facility or a multi-site environment. The versatility, functionality and broad footprint of the JENEsys Edge 514 using the industry’s most widely deployed platform makes this a powerful, cost-effective and economical solution. The JENEsys Edge 514 can easily be integrated into other Niagara 4 solutions. It is perfect for both retrofit and new construction projects, small to mid-sized commercial buildings, and applications in retail, hotels, schools, churches, and health care clinics.

The JENEsys Edge 514 enables you to access data from different sources, make it consistent across multiple applications, have more capacity, offer higher levels of data processing and increased storage capabilities, and add a level of command and control. In addition, connect a JENE-EG514 to up to 8 additional extender modules (Onyxx XM34IO), adding 34 points of IO each, for a maximum of 286 points. The JENEsys Edge 514 licensing is well-suited to take Niagara 4 into smaller or mid-sized and pricesensitive applications.

Built on Niagara 4 and Onyxx® (an extensible platform), the JENEsys Edge 514 runs Niagara 4 on the edge and is compatible with many existing Niagara 4 drivers, including the Niagara 4 Network (Fox), BACnet, Modbus, Web and oBIX. The JENEsys Edge 514 leverages global capacity licensing and runs on a real-time Linux OS with a fast processor and increased memory capacity. The JENEsys Edge 514 also includes a GUI for building your own internal graphics.
