A fully integrated drive system that brings real benefits in terms of operating efficiency,
user safety and productivity

A closer look on the CAN-bus technology
Conventional drive systems are based on switch activated controls in the tiller arm. Drive systems message inputs are transferred to the controller via many electrical cables – that are prone to wear.

BT Powerdrive features switchless electronics in the tiller arm. Drive requests are communicated to the logic card via a magnetic sensor (no actual contact = no wear). This proven CAN-bus system ensures increased reliability of the drive system when in use.
