Cooper Wireless Debuts
By Andrew Bond, Industrial Automation Insider
Cooper Wireless, which brings together Cooper's Canadian acquisition Omnex Controls and Elpro Technologies, the Australian company acquired by MTL in 2008, had its first public outing in Orlando last month, making a busy week for WINA president Steve Toteda who was recently appointed vp and general manager of the newly created Cooper Bussmann business unit (INSIDER, January 2010, page 3). "The merging of these brands allows us to provide our customers with increasingly comprehensive, highly-specified solutions for improving productivity and safety in demanding industrial and mobile control applications around the world," he explained.
Omnex, an early adopter of Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology, claims to have become the leading supplier of robust, "never-fail" remote controls for the shipping, concrete pumping and placement and mobile boom sectors and has migrated its Trusted Wireless technology into industrial I/O and networking for fixed plant and field environments. The result is enterprise-wide wireless infrastructure solutions for water and waste water treatment, oil and gas extraction and refining and process manufacturing.
