Magnetek, Inc. Introduces MagnePulse™ Digital Magnet Control
MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. - July 15, 2010 - Magnetek, Inc., today announced the introduction of its new MagnePulse Digital Magnet Control (DMC) for the improved operation of DC industrial lifting magnets.
MagnePulse DMC is a microprocessor based, solid-state, DC-to-DC magnet control package built on the same platform as the Company's proven OmniPulse DDC drive. It combines advanced safety and performance features to improve productivity and reliability by providing precise digital control of magnet lift operations. MagnePulse DMC allows an operator to enable up to four unique magnets to match individual load requirements while reducing lifting current requirements, saving energy, lengthening magnet life, and increasing average lift capacity.
The MagnePulse DMC is ideal for retrofit applications, using existing operator controls and connections. Magnetek can design and build a DMC control panel to almost any specifications. "We are very excited to add the MagnePulse DMC to our industry-leading ling of controls," said Aaron Kureck, controls products and development engineering manager for Magnetek. "This product brings our advanced power technology to the operation of magnet cranes giving our customers flexible and efficient control of their magnet lifting operations."
