ATEX compliance

ATEX compliance, required by the European Union, certifies that Magnetek wireless controls are safe to use in potentially explosive areas with flammable gases or vapors. IECEx equipment certification signifies that Magnetek’s wireless controls conform to international safety standards for environments where a potential exists for explosions. By gaining these certifications, the company’s XLTX and MLTX2 transmitters may be used in EX Zone 0, Zone 1, and Zone 2 environments that involve potentially explosive situations due to the production or release of gases or vapors. The MLTX transmitter delivers a cost-effective option to meet North American requirements. MLTX is a non-incendive transmitter intended for use in hazardous locations requiring ISA 12.12.01 Class I and Class II, Division 2, Group A, B, C, D, E, F, and G.

Miniature wireless controls

Magnetek offers a range of miniature wireless controls, the Flex Mini, Mini-MBT, and Mini-PGT, which allow customers to choose the exact functionality, size, and style to fit a variety of applications. Providing many of the capabilities and configuration options found in full-size transmitters, these lighter, smaller controls are easy and comfortable to use.

Magnetek’s full line of innovative, versatile wireless controls, complete with plug-and-play hydraulic interface controls, are designed to meet customer specifications, reducing internal engineering and manufacturing costs, improving time to market, and enhancing equipment performance.
