JENEsys Edge® 514

Niagara 4 Programmable Logic Controller

The JENEsys Edge 514 is a fully programmable Niagara controller with 14 IOs built-in and expandable IOs available, delivering edge connectivity, control, data access and analytics for today's buildings, energy management applications, equipment, and machine-to-machine applications within a secure environment. Connect and access your data, anytime and anywhere. Purpose-built, Lynxspring’s JENEsys Edge 514 delivers edge connectivity and data access for today's small to mid-sized facilities, plant and equipment control, and machine-to-machine applications that require smart edge technology.

Taking Niagara 4 to the Edge with Real-Time Control

The JENEsys Edge 514 combines Niagara 4 with Onyxx, a proven IoT edge hardware platform, enabling facility managers, operators, system integrators and contractors to use a familiar user interface (ProBuilder/Workbench software), Niagara programming tools and Fox Protocol.

Business Use Cases the JENEsys Edge 514 Resolves

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 price-sensitive applications.

Advantages of the JENEsys Edge 514

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. This controller is a fully programmable and licensed Niagara field and equipment controller with 14 IO (inputs and outputs) on-board and runs the full Niagara stack.

Typical Users of the JENEsys Edge 514

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.

How the JENEsys Edge 514 Compares to the JENEsys Edge 534

The JENEsys Edge 514 has the same general capabilities, same processor, and memory as the JENEsys Edge 534, but with fewer built-in I/O’s (14 vs 34) and a smaller form factor.

How the Onyxx XM 34IO Can Be Connected to a JENEsys Edge 514

These devices can be connected by their Onyxx Network ports and chained with 2-wire shielded twisted pair cable. Total bus length should not exceed 30 feet.
