MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. – April 16, 2018 – Magnetek, a leading supplier of digital power and motion control systems for the material handling industry, will be displaying its broad range of control products at the 2018 AISTech Iron & Steel Technology Conference and Exposition being held in Philadelphia, May 7-10, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Visitors to Magnetek’s booth, #2140, will have the opportunity to view selected variable frequency drives, heavy-duty brakes, radio remote controls, and cable reels. Additionally, Magnetek will be exhibiting its new OmniPulse™ DDC Series 2 and a hands-on IMPULSE® VG+ drive demo that demonstrates specialty features including Load Summing, Anti-Shock, Hoist Synchronization, Weight Measurement II, and advanced system diagnostics.
“The OmniPulse DDC Series 2 improves performance, safety, and reliability of DC-operated material handling applications,” said Dan Beilfuss, director of North America, Crane Solutions Group. “OmniPulse DDC Series 2 also features the DataLogger Series 4 keypad, which makes troubleshooting simple and allows for configuration of drives without switching between two devices to log or modify parameters.”
Attendees will be able to operate the hands-on hoist demo that showcases many of Magnetek’s crane control safety and productivity features. The demo will feature custom Weight Measurement System drive software, consisting of both Load Summing and Weight Measurement II functions. These features allow multiple hoists to measure the load on each hook without a load cell, add the weights together, and prevent an additive overload of the crane structure. Individual or additive weights can be displayed on a scoreboard or stored in a PLC. Hoist Synchronization, which allows for multiple hoists to be operated in tandem with precision down to a fraction of an inch, will also be showcased. Operation and diagnostic information is displayed on an interactive HMI touch-screen, unlocking a virtually unlimited potential for monitoring drives on a wired or wireless network.
Finally, Magnetek will be showcasing its mill duty cable reels, superior solutions to effectively and compactly manage large lengths of cable. Mill duty reels, available in multiple sizes, are optimal for heavy-duty applications in harsh environments, such as mills and foundries, and are ideal for high-duty cycles and speeds.
Product specialists will be on hand to answer questions, demonstrate products, and discuss project solutions. Additional information about the Company’s material handling control solutions is available at www.magnetekmh.com.
