Voice assistant integration is the top smart-home trend at CES

Peter Newman for Business Insider:  Companies throughout the tech space are introducing devices and announcing new partnerships at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

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.
