Note: Not compatible with Festool CT-SYS, CT MINI, CT MIDI Dust Extractors, as well as the CT 22 and CT 33 models which were discontinued in 2011.
The MAXSYS Wireless Remote is an a control module that quickly and simply installs into your Festool CT 26/36/48 Dust Extractor to allow for wireless operation. Using the included key fob, which is similar to those used to unlock your vehicle, the dust extractor can be turned on and off remotely. This is the perfect accessory for cordless tools which cannot trigger the dust extractor to turn on since there's no power cord. It's also great for anyone who uses their Festool dust extractor with a table saw or other stationary equipment.
The MAXSYS installs in a couple of minutes into the module bay on your Festool dust extractor. All you need is a screwdriver to remove a couple of screws for installation. Once installed, it stays there permanently. So, there's no need to remember to connect it when you want to use it. The MAXSYS also allows normal function of all of the dials and controls on the front of the dust extractor including the switch for manual or auto operation.
As with any RTS Engineering product, Maxsys exceeds the quality expectations that Festool owners demand. The heavy-duty remote keyfob uses a solid aluminum subframe and brushed aluminum face for durability in a rugged workshop environment, and has a protective slide cover over the buttons to prevent inadvertent activation while in your pocket. The fob is very compact, and even includes a small lanyard hook, so you can slip it in your pocket, or hang it from your tool.
