     11== Improvements over the previous model (BH8-262): ==
     12* New CANbus control offers > 10x the control rate of RS-232.
     13* Realtime control now includes torque and position control modes in addition to the standard velocity control.
     14* All joint positions are tracked, even after TorqueSwitch breakaway occurs.
     15* The palm height has been reduced by 18 mm, improving end-of-arm agility.
     16* Absolute magnetic encoders are more robust than the incremental optical encoders of the previous model and offer 10x position precision.
     17* LEDs on the hand indicate power or error state (error states available soon).
     18* Locally-controlled sensor/drive loops allow for lead-through programming.
     19* Programmable over-temperature shutdown with multiple heat sensors.
     20* Gear shields on “spread” axis help to keep grease in, fingers out.
     21* Smaller power supply with status LEDs.
     22* Maximum allowable cable length extended from 3 m to 35 m (using CANbus).
     23* The BarrettHand Graphical User Interface software has many new features, including: cross-platform compatibility (Windows/Linux), interactive 3D model using OpenGL, and enhanced data collection and graphing capabilities.
