Magnetek, Inc. Announces Launch of New Tethered CAN-bus Controller
MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. - February 9, 2011 - Magnetek, Inc., today announced the launch of its new Enrange™ Flex Pro Tethered CAN-bus Controller for mobile hydraulic applications.
This new Controller includes all of the features of the Company’s lightweight Flex Pro handheld transmitter, including precise proportional control and adjustable speed control, in a convenient, tethered version. Flex Pro Tethered provides “one-handed operation,” useful for applications that require the operator to assist in the operation of the machine.
Flex Pro Tethered is ideal for situations when RF cannot be used because of RF jamming restrictions, or when proportional control is needed but RF is not required. This controller can be kept on hand as an inexpensive back-up to prevent costly delays.
“We are very excited to offer this new version of our Flex Pro,” said Ben Stoller, radio controls manager for Magnetek. “It offers an additional flexible option for our customers that can be easily integrated into a variety of mobile hydraulic applications.”
This new product further expands the radio control product portfolio offered by the Company, reflecting its commitment to becoming a leading provider of advanced wireless control systems to the mobile hydraulic equipment industry.
