Home of the Smart Red Box
Back in 2002 when J+J developed and launched their innovative J2 Series of electric valve actuators which introduced multi-voltage capability and electronic over-torque protection, it was hailed the Smart Red Box.LEARN MORE
A Smart Actuator
In 2008 the next release from the European electric actuator manufacturer J+J was the J3 Series which saw the highly successful J2 Smart Red Box Series taken to a different level. J+J developed and introduced Plug & Play function conversion kits that could be retro-fitted to the standard on-off J3 electric actuator.LEARN MORE
J+J have offered a failsafe electric actuator for more than 20 years, but the J3 on-off actuator could now be converted by the distributor or the user to create a failsafe electric actuator with user friendly plug & play BSR kits, introduced in 2008.LEARN MORE
Modulating Electric Actuators
An essential from any electric actuator manufacturer for process control applications, J+J have offered proportional control for over 20 years. However, in 2008 the J3 Smart Red Box introduced a simple to install self-calibrating modulating conversion of an on-off actuator with its Digital Positioning System (DPS) plug & play kit.LEARN MORE
Introducing theJ3C S Type
In 2016 the ‘game changer’ was introduced by J+J, the European electric actuator manufacturer. 24V to 240V AC or DC multi-voltage capability with automatic voltage sensing. No dip switches or jumpers, no alternate wiring for high or low voltage. Patent pending. A truly Smart Red Box.LEARN MORE
The S TypeSmart Red Box
Not only can the J3C S Type accept any input voltage between 24 and 240V, and the J+J plug & play function conversion kits, but now it’s hugely popular LED status light is multi-colour so shows the direction of travel, or end of travel, or fault diagnosis, in colour. A very Smart Actuator indeed.LEARN MORE
JJ Automation The European Electric Actuator Manufacturer
Starting out in the 1990s with a vision of designing and manufacturing industrial electric actuators with a plastic housing, and showing determination and resilience through early market scepticism from engineers used to 1950s design, heavy aluminium housed electric actuators, the J+J brand they created is now global. The Smart Red Box electric actuator was born and more than 25 years later, is sold in over 70 countries.LEARN MORE THE MARKETS WE SERVE
Electric Product range
Created by Spanish brothers Jomi and Jordi Chaves in the 1980's, a design concept to produce the world's most user friendly, protected, multi-voltage, multi-function range of smart electric valve actuators is now a globally recognised brand that has been sold in over 70 countries. Known as The Smart Red Box since the innovative J2 Series was introduced in 2002, this web site offers a technical resource to provide visitors with information to replace, research, or specify our smart electric actuators.
These quick and easy to install plug and play kits change the function of JJ smart electric actuators, introduced with the J3 Series-. These user friendly function conversion kits fit inside the housing of a standard 'on-off' electric actuator and are normally supplied fitted and tested by J+J, although they can easily and quickly be retrofitted should the required function in situ change.
For over 20 years JJ Automation, the specialists in valve actuation, have assembled, tested and supplied a wide range of quality electrically actuated ball valves to satisfied customers all around the world.
Pneumatic Product range
The CH-air rack and pinion pneumatic actuators offer a very high quality valve actuator manufactured in Europe, the 'A' Type, or a Chinese manufactured 'C' Type pneumatic actuator that offers an excellent price to quality ratio. Both types are fully compliant with valve and actuator standards enabling the direct mounting of similarly compliant valves and actuator position control and monitoring devices.VIEW RANGE
Air actuated ball valves offer a robust and reliable valve and actuator package typically where the actuated valve will see a lot of movements, where no electric supply is available, or where some vibration is present.VIEW RANGE
Wafer and fully lugged butterfly valves in a variety of bidy and liner materials fitted with a CH-air pneumatic actuator, supplied fully assembled and dry bench function tested prior to despatch. Click the image below to select the type of air actuated butterfly valve you require.
