Highland Controls, which focuses on motion control product selection and application programming, today released an updated web site with the industry's top brands and free resources.

"Our new design is much more user friendly," Highland Controls President Brian Beal says. "We've had excellent feedback from our customers and suppliers and included their advice in the new design."

With the redesign, Highland Controls added areas for industry resources, including the company's new educational guide, "How to Make Your Best Moves with Motion Control Systems."

New sections also showcase leading brands and select products from Pro-Dex, Nook, ABB, Specview, Procon Electronics, Beijer Electronics and others. Diverse products include servo drives, stepper motors, linear actuators, ball screw assemblies, operator interface terminals (OITs), and screw jacks.

"We wanted to make it easy for companies to learn about the products and systems that can best meet their needs with the right plan," Beal says. "We're positioned to help them make the right decisions."

Bitflow is the leader in CoaXPress

Bitflow is the leader in CoaXPress

With the introduction of its Cyton and Karbon CXP frame grabbers, BitFlow has established itself as the leader in CoaXPress (CXP), a simple, yet powerful, standard for moving high speed serial data from a camera to a frame grabber. With CXP, video is captured at speeds of up to 6.25 Gigabits/Second (Gb/S). Simultaneously, control commands and triggers can be sent to the camera 20 Mb/S (with a trigger accuracy of +/- 2 nanoseconds). Up to 13 W of power can also supplied to the camera. All this happens over a single piece of industry standard 75 Ohm coaxial cable. Multiple CXP links can be aggregated to support higher data rates (e.g. four links provide 25 Gb/S of data). BitFlow CXP frame grabbers open the door to applications where cable cost, routing requirements and long distances have prevented the move to high resolution, high speed digital cameras. In many cases, existing coaxial infrastructure can be repurposed for CXP with very low installation costs.
