Magnetek Introduces New Telemotive MBT Transmitter

10/15/2013 - Magnetek, Inc., a provider of digital power and motion control systems, announced the launch of their Telemotive MBT radio remote control, one of the smallest and lightest bellybox controls available on the market today.
The MBT offers control options found in larger bellybox transmitters, including a graphic display, proportional thumb sticks, FHSS RF, and two-way feedback, in a compact and durable package.
Magnetek first introduced this versatile bellybox transmitter for the mobile hydraulic market four years ago, where it proved to be a great success. The Company is now offering this ergonomically styled bellybox to overhead material handling customers for crane and hoist applications.
“While its size makes the MBT versatile, it does not sacrifice functionality,” Eugene Novak, Magnetek’s radio controls product manager said. “Many different combinations of toggles, selector switches, and potentiometers are available, and the optional graphic display can be adjusted for status updates and machine information as needed.”
Incorporating the latest electronic technology, the MBT can be customized to meet almost any application. Its rugged, super-tough nylon housing is made to withstand shock and harsh industrial environments.
