JCS is now a UL508a Certified Manufacturer of Industrial Control Panels

JCS is pleased to announce that we have become a UL508a certified manufacturer (CM) of Industrial Control Panels. The UL508a certification indicates that control panels are designed and constructed to use quality components, appropriate circuit protection, correct wiring and spacing, and conform to electrical code specifications according to UL standards.

Why Should I upgrade from ControlNet/DeviceNet to Ethernet/IP?

Manufacturers looking for ease of maintenance, upgradability and employing the IIOT (Industrial Internet of things) will need to upgrade to Ethernet/IP networks to ensure their equipment will be viable into the future and capable of taking advantage of the next generation of industrial control.

Achieving success in stages

The strongest companies in any industry achieve their objectives by defining the “criteria for success” before initiating any project or endeavor. Many companies define “success” in terms of scope, schedule, budget, and quality. Others define it in terms of “significant value” for the organization upon project completion.  At JCS, we respect both definitions recognizing that “significant value” may include: lower cost of ownership, reduced downtime, maximized product yields, and/or increased efficiencies.  Proper control of project scope, schedule, budget, and quality are key in achieving the desired significant value.
