Magnetek Announces the New Enrange MLTX2 Two-way Feedback in a Comfortable, Lightweight Wireless Control
MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. - July 5, 2011 - Magnetek, Inc., (NYSE:MAG) today announced the introduction of its new Enrange™ MLTX2 wireless controller for mobile hydraulic applications. The MLTX2 provides users with an informative graphic display and two-way feedback in a lightweight, comfortably contoured case. This highly durable transmitter is configurable to meet the needs of a variety of industries and applications, including tow trucks, cement trucks, boom trucks, truck cranes, concrete mixers, drill rigs, mining equipment and more.
“Our new MLTX2 offers users a number of feature-rich options that enhance productivity and safety,” states Ben Stoller, Magnetek’s Director of Radio Controls. “Operators are able to configure the new MLTX2 on a Windows PC with our Radio Control Programmer (RCP). Uploading new programming in the field is easy with a USB connection. An optional graphic display keeps the operator informed of system status at all times, and makes configuring system settings simple. Two-way feedback, another new option, provides information such as machine related parameters, engine diagnostic information, and Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI).”
MLTX2 is available in several frequency options including 400MHz, 900MHz, and 2.4 GHz.
The transmitter can be combined with Magnetek’s MHR Radio Controller to provide a total radio control system for operating mobile equipment. The MHR integrates the components of a radio receiver and hydraulic controller into a single unit, reducing cost and freeing up valuable space. The Company’s CAN-6 Receiver is also compatible with MLTX2, making adding remote control to hydraulically CAN-BUS controlled machinery simple. The compact design is rugged enough to handle outdoor environments, and the quick response allows for precise control.
