Magnetek Introduces Proportional Control Handheld Transmitter
Magnetek Inc., Menomonee Falls, Wis., has introduced Flex Pro, a handheld radio remote control versatile enough for nearly every crane and hoist application. Flex Pro offers operators a new way to interact with and manage their loads, providing the ability to maneuver with precise control and smooth operation.
The Flex Pro handheld transmitter utilizes a crane’s variable frequency drive control to provide true stepless load control. Magnetek first introduced this flexible, proportional radio control into the mobile hydraulic market three years ago, where it proved to be a great success. The company is now offering this radio control option to the overhead material handling market for crane and hoist applications.
Flex Pro is an addition to Magnetek’s line of radio control products, lauded for their plug and play modular format. Magnetek’s Enrange product line offers a flexible range of components that work seamlessly together, allowing customers to design control packages to meet exact specifications. This results in lower manufacturing and internal engineering costs and enhanced equipment performance.
“Flex Pro offers our customers a precise control option for improving overhead crane performance, productivity and safety,” said Eugene Novak, Magnetek’s manager of radio controls. “The capability to proportionally moderate speed is just one of Flex Pro’s flexible features.”
