Magnetek’s state-of-the-art AC Line Regenerative units capture surplus regenerative energy from the motor that would normally be expended by resistors and return it to the AC power source.
Magnetek recently announced the addition of the IMPULSE•R+ to their series of AC Line Regenerative Systems.
The new IMPULSE•R+ line regenerative unit is an effective solution to increase the energy efficiency of overhead cranes. Available with ratings from 5-400 HP, the IMPULSEïR+ is easy to operate and connects to a network, via Ethernet and a PLC, to monitor status in real-time. The unit is simple to install, including in explosion-proof enclosures, and can be easily retrofitted to replace dynamic braking units and resistors on existing controls. Wiring and maintenance generally associated with traditional dynamic braking resistors is eliminated.
Magnetek’s state-of-the-art AC Line Regenerative units capture surplus regenerative energy from the motor that would normally be expended by resistors and return it to the AC power source, reducing total energy consumption and creating industry leading gains in energy efficiency. Initial investment “payback” can be realized in as little as one year, reducing a company’s energy costs.
Magnetek also offers the IMPULSE•D+, a high-performance Active Front End Regenerative Unit in a chassis drive layout with ratings up to 830 HP. The Company’s IMPULSE•D+ HHP unit offers a modular, regenerative inverter platform suitable for applications up to 2,000 HP. All three regenerative units can be easily integrated with the company’s IMPULSE•G+ or VG+ Series 3 or Series 4 adjustable frequency drives and sized to fit the expected regenerative need.

Magnetek‘s ergonomic, easy-to-use Telemotive XLTX and MLTX2™ transmitters now offer both ATEX and IECEx certifications, approving them to control equipment used worldwide in potentially hazardous applications. Telemotive MLTX™ is suitable for applications requiring non-incendive ratings to comply with North American requirements.
Required in the European Union, ATEX certifies Magnetek‘s radio remote controls are approved for use in potentially explosive areas with flammable gases or vapors.
Signifies Magnetek‘s radio remote controls conform to international safety standards for environments where a potential exists for explosions.
What Does That Mean for You?
By gaining these certifications, Magnetek‘s XLTX and MLTX2 transmitters are able to be used in EX Zone 0, Zone 1, and Zone 2 environments that may involve potentially explosive situations due to the production or release of gases or vapors. Utilizing radio remote controls like the XLTX, MLTX2, or MLTX improves safety by allowing operators to control equipment farther from hazardous working environments than wired alternatives.
