Oil Rig Wireless Radio Application
The challenge for this application was to maximize control of lift systems for drill rigs. By doing this, it will improve setup and help the system operate more safely and efficiently. Because of the harsh environment, our transmitter has to withstand harsh environments and heavy vibration.
Magnetek provided a the MLTX Bellybox transmitter suited for Class 1, Div 2 application. The Flex M receiver was used for easy set up. This system was flexible and reliable, making it an easy for the drill rig operators to use. This application allowed one transmitter to talk to two separate receivers either simultaneously or independently. This allowed for both Catwalk and Tugger control with one transmitter. The custom engineered solution provided a cost effective solution that improved performance.
