Dynamic Braking Resistors meet UL and CSA standards.Magnetek, Inc. Menomonee Falls, WI 53051
Dec 17, 2013 Designed to meet UL508A and CSA C22.2 No. 14 safety standards, Dynamic Braking Resistors work in concert with company’s Dynamic Braking Units to dissipate regenerative energy generated from motors controlled by IMPULSEŽ brand variable frequency drives. Units are designed specifically for crane and hoist duty cycles and are available in grid, wire wound, or edge wound resistor coils mounted in ventilated enclosures.
Variable Frequency Drive suits small cranes and retrofits.Magnetek, Inc. Menomonee Falls, WI 53051
Oct 31, 2013 Suitable for contactor control upgrades and replacements, IMPULSE∙T Crane Control provides basic functionality of variable frequency drive for CMAA Class A-D traverse motions. Unit comes standard with 120 Vac digital interface card with 5 discrete inputs, and can also be fitted with 48 Vac, 24 Vac, and 24 Vdc interface cards to meet design needs. ULŽ recognized motor overload protection comes standard to protect motor and peripheral electronics from damage.
Radio Remote Control comes in compact and durable package.Magnetek, Inc. Menomonee Falls, WI 53051
Oct 16, 2013 Supplied in nylon housing that withstands shock and harsh environments, Telemotive MBT bellybox control offers such options as proportional thumb sticks, FHSS RF, and 2-way feedback. Size promotes application versatility, and different combinations of toggles, selector switches, and potentiometers are available. Optional graphic display can be adjusted for status updates and machine information as needed. Used in overhead material handling, product suits crane and hoist applications.
Crane Controls feature anti-shock technology.Magnetek, Inc. Menomonee Falls, WI 53051
Sep 27, 2013 Designed to automatically stabilize loads by detecting and minimizing rapid increases in motor torque, Anti-Shock technology on IMPULSEŽ•VG+ Series 4 Controls minimizes potential for crane damage caused by operator-induced load shock. Proactive approach not only protects crane and building, it increases operator safety by minimizing risk for mechanical failure. After stabilizing load, hoist automatically reaccelerates to speed operator had initially selected.
AC Line Regenerative Unit targets overhead crane systems.Magnetek, Inc. Menomonee Falls, WI 53051
Jul 17, 2013 To minimize energy consumption, IMPULSE•D+ Active Front End Regeneration Unit captures surplus regenerative energy from motor that would normally be expended by resistors and returns it to AC power source. System is designed to minimize line harmonics below IEEE 519 requirements while regulating consistent DC bus voltage. With 230 V class rated from 5–150 hp and 460 V class rated to 450 hp, IMPULSE•D+ is suited for applications that include high demand braking cycle and adjustable speed.
AC Line Regenerative Systems help conserve energy.Magnetek, Inc. Menomonee Falls, WI 53051
Feb 05, 2013 Eliminating need for dynamic braking resistors, AC Line Regenerative Systems take surplus regenerative energy from motor and return it to AC power source, reducing total energy consumption and improving energy efficiency by 40–45%. These industrial grade units are available in 2 types: IMPULSEŽ•R units are offered with ratings from 5–100 hp, while IMPULSEŽ•D+ HHP modular, regenerative inverter platform is suitable for applications beyond 200 hp.
Handheld Transmitter provides wireless crane/hoist control.Magnetek, Inc. Menomonee Falls, WI 53051
Sep 07, 2012 Available in 400 MHz and 2.4 GHz, Flex VUE(TM) has built-in color display that keeps operator informed of system status and diagnostics - battery life, signal strength, warnings - at all times. Operators can configure transmitter directly via display menu, and available 2-way feedback provides information on machine parameters, alarms, and command confirmation. For accurate and smooth operation, 4, 8, or 12 two-step or stepless pushbutton configurations are available.
Sway Control System is available for retrofit installations.Magnetek, Inc. Menomonee Falls, WI 53051
Aug 22, 2012 As external retrofit, IMPULSEŽ Sway Control System Series 2 meets variety of overhead crane application requirements. It can be used with nearly any manufacturer's variable speed drive and eliminates need for complete overhaul or replacement of existing controls. This retrofit improves crane productivity by allowing operators to move loads at full speed without danger of load sway damaging equipment.
Radio Remote Control targets crane and hoist applications.Magnetek, Inc. Menomonee Falls, WI 53051
Apr 27, 2012 Utilizing crane's variable frequency drive control, Flex Pro Handheld Transmitter provides true stepless load control. Unit offers choice of 8 or 12 proportional button configurations, and adjustable speed control with 4 mode settings of 25, 50, 75, and 100% output. I-CHIP module enables universal transmitter to be programmed in field. Featuring rugged nylon housing, ergonomically designed control is NEMA 4/IP66-rated to withstand harsh, industrial environments.
