Form follows function - it also controlled the Bär tail lift of the 80s according to this motto. Since then, the Bär control box has been a symbol for Bär Cargolift like no other component: Reduced to the essentials, with a focus on a logical process, tried and tested many times over in tough use!
In 2016, Bär now presents the next generation of its control box - affectionately referred to internally as “EVO”. Because the Bär Control EVO retains the proven, robust body as well as the logical operating sequences. New are the outer shell which is enhanced through the use of aluminium and the lever switches. The control elements are more robust than ever before. Sensitive electrical components are installed and protected in the beam. And: With the Bär Control EVO, the control lever becomes a key switch.
Bär Control EVO brings with it a new feature: SwitchKey replaces the previous key switch with a defined operating sequence of the left control lever. The operator is able to specify this operating sequence himself. By this the driver can switch on and off the Cargolift with a movement of the lever. However, a checkback signal in the cabin is still required to display the driving position of the platform.
Operating the right lever three times downward when the platform is open switches off the flashing lights e.g. at the ramp.
