Magnetek, Inc. to Exhibit Range of Motion Control Products at bauma Munich 2016  

MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. -  March 3, 2016 - Magnetek, Inc., a leading provider of digital power and motion control systems, will be exhibiting at bauma Munich 2016 at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre, in Munich, Germany, April 11-17. Visitors to the Company’s booth, 515/F, located in USA Pavilion, Hall C4, will be able to experience a variety of Magnetek’s wireless controls, ranging from the full-featured XLTX transmitter to the handheld Flex Pro transmitter or Flex VUE® transmitter with informative display. Magnetek will also showcase a wide range of transmitters, a selection of receivers, and a working demonstration featuring the US-patented MHR Radio Controller.

The XLTX bellybox transmitter, available with optional ATEX and IECEx certifications for use in potentially hazardous locations, incorporates the latest wireless control technology in a lightweight, yet durable case. A feature-rich transmitter, the XLTX can be customized with two-way RF, graphic display, and frequency options for a variety of industrial wireless control applications.

The ergonomically styled Flex Pro incorporates the latest proportional control technology in a lightweight, comfortably contoured, yet durable case. It is available with several options to meet the needs of various applications and industries. Magnetek’s Flex VUE provides operators with advanced communications and proportional control in a handheld product. “Flex VUE’s high resolution color display keeps operators continually apprised of system status and diagnostics, including battery life, signal strength, and warnings. The Flex VUE brings the configuration convenience and two-way feedback found in our bellybox transmitters to a lightweight, ergonomically designed handheld unit,” said Ben Stoller, Magnetek’s director of radio controls. “Our Flex VUE and XLTX transmitters easily adapt to specific applications, offering a versatile and precise mobile hydraulic control option for improving performance, productivity, and safety.” 

Magnetek’s range of mini wireless controls, Flex Mini, Mini-MBT, and Mini-PGT, expand its portfolio of wireless control products allowing customers to choose the exact functionality, size, and style to fit their applications. One of Magnetek’s receivers, the versatile CAN-2, is rugged enough to handle outdoor environments, and its quick response allows for precise control without the latency found in other wireless control systems. The company’s MHR combines components of a radio receiver, CAN-bus display module, and hydraulic valve controller into a convenient single unit, saving money and freeing up valuable real estate on equipment.
