The History of Janzen Electronics
Janzen Electronics was born in 1988 with its first
major product, an automatic fish feeder (left). This was only
a prototype version though, and it served as a unique curiosity for a small
number of people. This was true for several of JE's first products, including:
a unit with a cassette player and amplifier circuits
mounted in it; a machine that separates water into
hydrogen and oxygen; a talking (yes, talking) automatic plant
watering machine; and a digital light dimmer control.
After 1994, the first few
marketable and large scale products were built: an adjustable
power supply and a digital sound effects recorder. As Janzen Electronics
continues to expand, we are striving to improve standards and maintain a uniqueness
not found in conventional products.
The automatic fish feeder. It is
meant to sit on top of a fish bowl or aquarium. The fish food
is placed on the black platform and at the set time of day, the
platform swivels down and drops the food. Also a small light
turns on at this time so the fish can see what it is eating.
