X-10 System Tray
by David Huras

Beta Software available at http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/davidhuras/x10st.htm

Here's the first shareware I've seen that operates with the CM11A (ActiveHome) interface. It also works with the Home Director and CP290. X-10 system tray is a Win95 application that does just what the name states. It puts an icon in the System Tray on your Win95 tool bar. Left Click on the icon and you get a pop-up that lets you define the devices and commands you want to include.

After that a right click on the icon and your list of commands is presented as a menu of choices (and it's fast). Just pick one and the commands it' is carried out. You can also have System Tray keep a log of the commands that are sent and received.

Set-up is quick and easy (an install wizard guides you through the process). The software is under Beta Test right now but should be completed soon.

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
