Press Release Summary:

May 12, 2015 - MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. – Magnetek, Inc. (NASDAQ:MAG), a leading provider of digital power and motion control systems, will be exhibiting at the 2015 Global Petroleum Show, located at Stampede Park in Calgary, Alberta, Canada from June 9-11. Visitors to the Company’s booth, #2109 in the Corral building, will be able to see Magnetek’s full line of wireless controls, including their hazardous location transmitters, XLTX and MLTX2.

Magnetek’s ergonomic, easy-to-use XLTX and MLTX2 wireless controls offer both ATEX and IECEx certifications, approving them to control equipment used worldwide in potentially hazardous applications. Additionally, Magnetek’s wireless controls feature an integrated graphic display, which keeps operators informed of system status at all times and makes configuring access codes, channels, and other system settings simple. These sophisticated bellybox transmitters incorporate the latest electronic technology in lightweight, durable cases and can be customized with several options to meet the needs of any application.

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.

“The flexibility offered by Magnetek’s transmitters allows users to operate farther away from a potentially dangerous situation than wired alternatives,” said Ben Stoller, Magnetek’s director of radio controls. “Customizable options, including a variety of available levers, joysticks, and toggles, are available to allow MLTX2 and XLTX to be designed to customers’ exact specifications.”
