Boca Bearing Company Announces a New Line of Electric Motor Quality and High Voltage Bearings

Boca Bearing Company draws on 25 years of bearing industry experience to offer insulated ceramic coated bearings and ceramic hybrid bearings specifically designed for electric motors and high voltage applications.

Boynton Beach, FL September 06, 2015


The Boca Bearing Company has recently expanded inventory to include Electric Motor Quality (EMQ) bearings and Ceramic Coated Insulated High Voltage bearings. The electric motor and electric power generation industries are constantly seeking increased efficiency and longer up-times. This electrical equipment is often relied upon for mission critical situations and can be very costly to repair.

The elements that result in bearing noise are surface finish, ball grade, ring roundness, cage design, cage quality and absolute manufacturing repeatability. Electric Motor Quality (EMQ) bearings have extremely low noise levels so they can be used in electric motors or other noise critical applications. EMQ bearings are available in 3 different noise levels ZV2 (low noise), ZV3 (very low noise) and ZV4 (extra low noise.) Typically EMQ bearings are supplied in chrome steel 52100 with standard or C3 radial play and they can handle heavy radial loads with moderate axial loads.

Electrical pitting often occurs in bearings used in electrical equipment, such as motors and power generators, as a result of current leakage. Our new line of WWI KEKAO-T ceramic insulated bearings and ceramic hybrid bearings are ideally suited to prevent the micro-welding associated with high voltage bearing applications. The ceramic coating material creates a barrier against any stray currents passing through the bearing. Ceramic insulated, high voltage bearings can be used in industrial motors and generators, wind turbine generators, high-voltage motors, variable frequency motors, traction motors, engraving machines, high speed trains etc.

Boca Bearing Company, headquartered in Boynton Beach, FL, is one of the most trusted names in ceramic bearing and lubrication technology. The reduction of rolling resistance and conservation of energy has been the company's hallmark since 1987. Boca Bearing Company is a one-stop-shop for everything from prototyping to production.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
