Menomonee Falls, Wis.-headquartered Magnetek Inc., a manufacturer of digital power and motion control systems, has received its first production order for 60 wind power inverters to be delivered in 2007.

In 2003, Magnetek entered into an agreement with a wind power company to develop power inverters for large, multi-megawatt wind turbines. The first 60 wind inverters to be delivered by Magnetek are a result of that agreement, the company says.

Magnetek's digital wind power inverters transform variable-frequency alternating current (AC) from wind turbine generators into the flow of 60-cycle AC, which is needed to feed the utility power transmission grid.
