Cooper Wiring Devices Announces Aspire RF™ Home Theatre Kits

Aspire RF packages are ready to install and deliver customized wireless control for the home

PEACHTREE CITY, GA., April 9, 2009 - Cooper Wiring Devices announces a new pre -packaged Home Theatre kit for the Aspire RF product line. The kit includes one Aspire RF controller (RFTDCSG or RFHDCSG), one Serial interface control module (RF232), four Aspire RF dimmers (RF9534 -Nxx) and four Aspire RF wall plates (9521xx).


The new kit will save users time and money, and provides a one -stop shop for the true home theatre enthusiast. The award -winning RF232 module enables installers to integrate the Aspire RF devices into any home control system to allow for a single point of control for home lighting. The kit provides control of four lighting loads, which can be used within a single room for home theatre purposes, or throughout the home for multi -room control. The Aspire RF controller is ideal for home theatre use, and the RF232 module integrates with popular A/V and Home control systems, providing flexibility throughout the home. Plus, the serial protocol (ASCII) used with the RF232 module is free to the integrator community, and can be found at www.cooperwiringdevices.com/AspireRF, in the "Support" section.

The kits come in two pre -set versions: RFHK1xx (Includes Tabletop) and RFHK2xx (includes Handheld). However, they can be easily expanded to include up to 200 devices, and specified to fit the exact requirements of each user. The new Home Theatre kits are available for order through distributors in the electrical and low -voltage channel, and come in four attractive colors; AW (Alpine White), DS (Desert Sand), SG (Silver Granite) and WS (White Satin). The Aspire RF Home Theatre kits are the latest in a series of helpful product collections from Cooper Wiring Devices - its Room Control Kit, Home Starter Kit and Welcome Kit are established industry favorites. These unique product collections provide for increased security, energy savings, home control and enhanced lifestyle options.
The Aspire RF wireless control system, powered by Z -Wave® technology, features a full line of switches, receptacles, dimmers, scene control keypads, remote controls, accessories and screwless wall plates. All products are interoperable, and are fully compatible with a wide range of products from other Z -Wave manufacturers. The entire system is controlled with the press of a single button on a remote control, and can be joined with other devices to create "events" or "scenes" that offer ambience, security, convenience and energy savings.

"We are excited to announce the new Home Theatre kits, as they effectively bundle a home theatre offering to provide our customer base with significant value as a one -stop shop for integration with home theatre and home control systems," said Jason Sherrill, Product Manager at Cooper Wiring Devices. "These new kits will deliver much -needed convenience to installers looking for a competitive advantage in these challenging economic times."

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
