Leave a Comment

Magnetek Flex EX2

In the realm of manufacturing, precision and safety are crucial components of operational success. At American Crane and Equipment Corporation, we supply Magnetek Flex EX2 transmitters, radio hoist remote controls designed to optimize material handling, overhead cranes, and industrial applications. These robust, feature-rich devices are designed to redefine operational efficiency and safety standards in various industrial settings. Let’s explore the functionalities that make these transmitters indispensable in the manufacturing industry.

Enhanced Performance and Features

Building upon the success of its predecessor, the Flex EX2 wireless controls offer superior functionality and performance without compromising on value. Available in 4, 6, 8, and 12 button configurations, these transmitters cater perfectly to crane and hoist applications, empowering operators with unparalleled control.

Crafted from a blend of industrial-strength nylon and fiberglass composite materials, the Magnetek Flex EX2 transmitters embody durability while prioritizing operator comfort. The gold-plated contacts within the pushbuttons, rated for over a million press cycles, deliver reliability that withstands the rigors of demanding industrial environments. Additionally, the defined snap-action pushbutton steps provide precise tactile feedback even when operators are gloved, ensuring precision in every command issued.

Safety at the Forefront

The hallmark of the Flex EX2 is its dedication to safety. Equipped with drop detection capability, these transmitters immediately cease all operations upon detecting an accidental drop. This functionality not only prevents unintended equipment motion but also significantly enhances system safety, mitigating potential hazards in the workplace.

Specialty Models for Enhanced Control

To cater to diverse operational needs, the Flex EX2 series offers specialty models that elevate control options to unprecedented levels.

  • A/B Selector Switch: Designed for convenience, this three-position selector switch allows seamless switching between two trolley/hoists located on a single bridge. This feature enhances operational clarity, enabling operators to identify the active trolley/hoist effortlessly.
  • Tandem Operation: Empowering two operators to independently or simultaneously control two bridge cranes or trolley/hoists, the tandem operation feature maximizes lifting power and operational capabilities. This allows for versatile handling of multiple equipment units, catering to diverse industrial requirements.
  • Receiver Select Operation: Simplifying installation complexities, this feature allows an operator to control multiple receiver units simultaneously or independently. This eliminates the need for control festooning between bridges and trolley/hoists, streamlining operations and freeing up equipment to move seamlessly from one bridge to another.
