The Galil RIO-47100 is an intelligent input and output controller for the Ethernet and can communicate with multiple devices, including Galil's DMC-40x0 Ethernet motion controllers. The unit contains a RISC processor for handling I/O logic and is programmed using Galil's easy-to-use, two-letter command language. The on-board intelligence of the controller frees the host for other tasks.

AMETEK Technical & Industrial Products has introduced PITTMAN Series 9000 brush-commutated dc motors with 2-pole stators that incorporate 7-slot skewed armatures to minimize magnetic cogging (or reluctance torque). Units are said to enable smooth and quiet running performance. Commutators are diamond turned after armature assembly to ensure optimum concentricity and long brush life and windings are resin-impregnated for greater reliability in incremental motion applications.

B&R has announced 8KS series liquid-cooled three-phase synchronous motors that are said to feature high power density with compact outer dimensions. Doing away with energy consuming and noisy fans saves space, reduces emissions and lowers costs. The life-span increases significantly because the motor parts except for bearings are free of wear. Intelligent connection technology for power and encoder connections using circular connectors or terminal boxes simplifies installation considerably.
