Magnetek Inc. received production orders over the past five weeks for its power inverters valued at over $8 million.

The orders received include inverters for wind turbines as well as an initial production order valued at nearly $1 million for inverters to be used in the operation of variable speed turbine generators for combined heat and power (CHP), a new market for the Company. The orders are currently scheduled for delivery between April 2011 and July 2011.

Magnetek’s E-Force power inverters regulate and transform DC power generated by renewable sources into utility-grade AC power, which is distributed to the power transmission grid.
