Magnetek, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAG), a leading supplier of digital power and motion control systems, today announced the availability of wireless controls certified for use in potentially hazardous locations. The Company received both ATEX and IECEx certifications for their XLTX and MLTX2 wireless controls.

“We are pleased to receive the ATEX and IECEx certifications for our XLTX and MLTX2 transmitters, as these wireless controls are now certified to control equipment used worldwide in oil and gas applications, an important market initiative for us,” said Ben Stoller, director of radio controls. “Other potentially hazardous locations where these wireless controls may be applied include petrochemical operations, above ground mining, and chemical plants.”

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.

“End user acceptance of the stringent ATEX and IECEx standards is typical in North America and worldwide,” said Stoller. “So these certifications should have a positive impact on our radio control business in North America as well as globally.”
