Designed for use with the company’s MHR Radio Controller series of receivers, the MLTX2 is suitable for indoor or outdoor use featuring a NEMA 4 (IP66) rating.

Magnetek says the MLTX2 is highly customisable, with 400mHz, 900MHz and 2.4GHz settings, two-way feedback functionality and optional graphical display.

Each unit has a configurable layout with either up to six levers or two joysticks. The levers and joysticks are available as proportional non-detent controls with up to five-speed settings.

Up to six toggles and a mushroom E-stop button are also featured along with a side-mounted key switch and code plug.

Commenting on the features available with the new transmitter, Magnetek’s director of radio controls, Ben Stoller, said, “Our new MLTX2 transmitter offers users a number of feature-rich options that enhance productivity and safety.

“You are able to configure the new MLTX2 on a Windows PC with our Radio Control Programmer (RCP). Uploading new programming in the field is easy with a USB connection. An optional graphic display keeps the operator informed of system status at all times, and makes configuring system settings simple. Two-way feedback, another new option, provides information such as machine related parameters, engine diagnostic information, and Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI).”
