Title: will the 202097 bluetooth/remote work on older vacs?
Post by: fignewton on August 02, 2020, 01:09 PM
My CT26E was made in 07/2015.  Will I be able to use the Bluetooth module with my older vac?
Thanks

I believe all the CT26 units will accept the BT remote receivers.  They just plug into the board when you remove the cover plate on the front of the vac.

Yup, this.

Wow!  Wish I had gotten one of these earlier.  I’m doing 27 cabinet doors and 14 drawer fronts, and spraying them with my Fuji 4 Platinum.  Using GF blocker primer and 3 coats of their white pigmented poly.  So, LOTS of sanding between coats.  This makes using the CT26 with boom arm so much easier to sand, vac, flip, sand, vac, etc.  What a well integrated feature.  Thanks Festool.

Yes the bluetooth retrofit for the CT vacs is a great option at a reasonable price!
