Magnetek Unveils Compact Energy Stations
LOS ANGELES, Cal. - December 29, 2003 - Magnetek, Inc., (NYSE: MAG) a leading developer of digital power components and systems, has introduced two new compact energy stations well suited for wireless telecom base stations, roadside terminals, remote switching cabinets and other installations requiring compact, modular DC power.
Packing 2,000 and 3,000 watts respectively, the new energy stations slide easily into standard rack shelving. The 2,000-watt model is 3.5 inches ("2U") high, and the 3,000-watt model is 5.25 inches ("3U") high. In both cases, the power density is nearly 3 watts per cubic inch, making these the most powerful standard energy stations of their size. Both units automatically convert a wide range of AC input voltages into reliable 48-volt DC output. Both feature modular redundancy, and individual rectifier modules can be added, removed or replaced without shutting anything down.
Adding to their reliability and suiting them ideally for outdoor installations, both models operate in temperatures from at least -20° to +55°. Operational with or without battery backup, they include easily programmable local and remote control (local and remote), communications and battery management capability. Remote control is facilitated with Windows-based software. Evaluation units are available in four to six weeks, depending on model. Prices range from $1,600 to $1,950 in production quantities.
Magnetek, Inc. manufactures digital power supplies and systems used in distributed power generation, industrial controls, medical electronics, semiconductor processing, consumer products, transportation, communications, information technology and other applications requiring highly reliable, precise, energy-efficient power. The Company operates manufacturing and research facilities in North America, Europe and China and reported total revenue of $202 million for its 2003 fiscal year, which ended on June 30, 2003.
