Magnetek, Inc. Announces Launch of New Radio Control Programmer
MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. - November 23, 2010 - Magnetek, Inc., (NYSE: MAG) today announced the launch of its new Radio Control Programmer (RCP) option for their Enrange™ MHR controller for mobile hydraulic applications.
The RCP add-on package allows the user to program system settings for the MHR from a Windows PC. It permits a programmer to easily create and save system configurations for future use. Configurations may also be transferred among multiple MHR radio controllers, saving time and effort.
This add-on package makes the Company’s sophisticated MHR radio controller even easier to use. The MHR integrates the components of a radio receiver and hydraulic controller into a convenient single unit, reducing costs and freeing up valuable space. When packaged with one of the Company’s transmitters, it provides a total wireless control system for operating mobile equipment including boom trucks, truck mounted cranes, derrick diggers, concrete pumpers, trenchers and more.
“We are very excited to offer this enhancement to our MHR radio controller,” said Ben Stoller, radio controls manager for Magnetek. “It makes the MHR even easier to use and integrate into a variety of mobile hydraulic applications.
