CT-22 Dust Extractor and Bluetooth Compatibility
« on: June 01, 2020, 05:33 AM »
I realise that this topic has been discussed in the past.
But, can someone honestly say they have physically tried to fit the bluetooth module to the CT-22?

I have owned the CT-22 for approx 10 years and I expect to get another 10 to 20 years use out of it.
It is still operating at 100% now and I have no reason to upgrade in the foreseeable future.

The long life bag works fantastic. I do take care of this extractor.
It is only used for wood dust.

When I am grinding or cutting concrete, I use the Protool VCP 260 E-L AC dust extractor.
Another bullet proof extractor which I expect to abuse for a long, long time!
I would love to upgrade both these extractors with the bluetooth module.

Surely someone out there has had a crack at it!
I would like to hear from anyone that has succeeded or failed!

Thanks,
Justin

How did you mount it to a CT 22?
Specs say CT 26/36/48

@Rick Christopherson produces a special module to mount within the CT 22/CT 33. It then attaches to the stock circuit board with slip-on connectors.

You can send me a message. I still have about 50 Maxsys modules left over.

I believe the issue with the MIDI & MINI is that they do not have pin-outs on the circuit board.

I never said anything to anyone, but I was actually pretty close to making the Midi/Mini remotes too. All I needed was a compact electromagnet at a reasonable cost. But bluetooth came out before I sourced the parts, and I dropped it.  [blink]

I've had a couple people contact me asking for Maxsys for their CT-22/33 vacs. I have some left over modules, and I will sell them at the old Dealer price of $85, simply because that's a paypal button that is still active and I had the HTML code for it still. Same for extra remotes. I'll go with the old Dealer pricing of $20.

There are no links to this ordering page, except for right here. This is a limited offer.

Thank you Rick, I just ordered one, the missing link to the Prometheus.
Man that thing is sweet. I always wanted one but didn’t have a space for it.

I'm curious @Rick Christopherson if the Festool remote (202098) can be paired with the Maxsys to actuate it?  That'd be a nice turn of events.

Hey Rick
I ordered Maxsys for CT22 on 6-2 and received it today 6-29!!! 
It appears that the instruction sheet that came with it is for CT 26/36/48

Well first off, I apologize for how long it took to get to you (everyone else too). I'm just not set up for doing these any more, and I kept putting each stage of the process off. Everyone's arrive today, except for one person whose order didn't show up until he messaged me.

Secondly, I just sent all of you an email with the installation instructions a few hours ago. Just in case you didn't get that email, here's a copy of the pdf.

Two questions/issues for you @Rick Christopherson  :

1. I can't locate the pairing instructions for the Maxsys and its remote control on your website.

2. Can the Maxsys be paired with the Festool remote control 202098?
