New IR technology and systems - true to its roots, Xantech has reinvented IR for audio/video system control. The new Red/95 and Green/85 series of IR kits and receivers are designed to address fundamental changes in audio/video technology as well as styles of living, through five -way technical superiority and new features. Xantech's IR leadership just received one of the industry's highest levels of recognition with the induction of its signature DinkyLink™ IR receiver into CEDIA's Product Hall of Fame.

BDX TT Bluetooth interface - many people now store and manage their music and media through a smartphone or other handheld device. Getting that music into an installed audio/video system can be a challenge, especially if the user does not want to bother with docking stations or cables. The BDX TT Bluetooth audio receiver provides that full -fidelity, reliable wireless connection between an A/V system and any handheld Bluetooth A2DP -enabled device such as a smartphone, PC or tablet. It lets the user maintain device functionality while listening to music - they can pause to take a call, for example.

SmartPanel® LCD touchpanels - Xantech's SmartPanel LCD touchpanels offer complete Room/Zone Control via interface to the MX88 system, or stand -alone via RS422/232, IR, GPIO trigger and now IP. With SmartPanel touchpanels, users can control A/V and automation components from one single interface portal. When used in stand -alone applications, all of the control processing is right in the panel itself, creating a very efficient room control panel with simplified installation and programming. The new units range in screen size from 3.5 inches to 7 inches. All boast super -bright, high -resolution, durable, professional -grade TFT LCD displays. The 4.3 and 7.0 models use widescreen displays. SP43 and 70 feature hard buttons for commonly used controls (on/off, volume up/down, and mute).

MX88 multi -zone audio/video controller - Xantech's MX88 IP -enabled multi -zone audio/video controller is engineered for iPad® control along with Xantech keypad and Xantech SmartPanel LCD touch -screen control. This Xantech web -enabled product allows an iPad to control an entire Xantech multi -zone audio/video system. An integrated audio/video distribution and control tour -de -force, the network -capable MX88 combines a highly efficient 50W x 16 -channel/8 -zone digital amplifier and smart auto -sensing universal (100V to 240V) power supply with advanced automation control, capable of up to 16 -Serial ports with the use of Xantech's RS232 1x8 serial routers, and 17 selectable IR ports, as well as IP communication and two -way interface with an iPad, or most other web -enabled tablets and PCs, without the need for installing a dedicated app. The MX88 system can be expanded to 16 zones by using two MX88 controllers, and each zone can accommodate one sub -zone and 4 controllers.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
