The control box Bär Control EVO

Innovation by tradition - BÄR's robust trademark in its highest stage of development

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.

Standard functions of the control levers

Switch off flashing lights

If the right operating lever is pressed down three times, the flashing lights are switched off when the platform is open, for example when using the platform on a ramp.

Save tilt-up/down angle

The current platform angle is saved as the tilt-up/down angle when the button is pressed upwards three times - a clear advantage for Standard S2 products.

Simultaneous opening and lowering of the platform with QuickShift

When the platform of Standard S4 Cargolifts is closed, valuable time can be saved with QuickShift - triggered by the lowering command on the control box Bär Control EVO. Since the last software update of BC.OS, QuickShift is also possible when using other operating elements.
