"Consumers are willing to buy reasonably priced solutions as long as there is no danger that their purchase will become obsolete i.e. there is a standard. Manufacturers also need standards before making the large investments necessary for low cost production. An ideal standard will allow developers to differentiate their products with features and include the flexibility to evolve over time according to the needs of the market."
"One hot item that I think that you will be able to get for a good price is a DVD player. As a fairly new technology, this is its first Christmas. Companies like Sony, Pioneer, Toshiba, Panasonic, and various others, will try to out do each other in DVD sales this year."
"Brazilian electricity supply, in common with most countries, follows a pattern of peak and low consumption periods. CEMIG (Companhia Energetica de Minas Gerais, a State Electric Utility Company in Brazil) have identified that they actually already have the capacity to support a larger customer base, provided they can spread demand more evenly. This can be achieved using dual-rate incentives or load-shedding."
"The fundamental goal of SMART HOUSE is to provide integrated wiring for all current home services and to include provisions for home automation technology. Cost savings are promised from reduced labor to install an integrated wiring system.
"In the most common application, the board takes input from a driveway sensor and turns on lighting when a car approaches the house. This is where the LC-6-X10's photocell and built in timer are very useful features"
"Using the PLC as the lighting control eliminates the toggle switch wall clutter, by replacing it with a low voltage switching solution. The low voltage keypad is a momentary contact device with multiple buttons."
"Though the original intent of developing the HomePnP specification may have been focused on empowering the consumer by providing features necessary to install and configure as many of the products in their home as possible, only a short-sighted individual would equate this to obsolescence of the role of a professional installer."
"The industry associations for BatiBUS, EIB and EHSA have agreed to converge towards a common standard. As you can imagine, this is no easy task, made more difficult by the many different standards for electricity and heating found in the different countries."
Three-Way Switch Circuits
"The most innovative feature of this remote is it's ability to control your PC. Once configured, buttons can be used to launch programs, edit documents, send email, logon and browse the web as well as navigating using the mouse pad."
"A truly successful algorithm would enable the average Kmart shopper to purchase and install a basic Home Plug and Play product without the need of consulting a professional installer or dialing 1-800-I-M-STUCK."
"The new "Bend 'm Shape'm" generation of HTML browsers with close desktop operating system integration, allows simple assembly of easy to use, highly functional PC based, paperless multimedia HTML environments."
"LonWorks networks are intended for applications spanning home and building automation, plus factory automation and aircraft.
"HouseLinc is one of a new line of home control products from SmartLinc. Shipped with PlatoTW software, it provides stand alone control of X-10 and IR devices."
"The application program is written in a language called ladder logic. Ladder logic comes from the electrical industry when relays were used to control equipment. Relays were energized from a power rail through a series of contacts that formed a rung. A number of rungs in turn formed a network."

Automation & Control - Featured Product
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.
