BitWise Controls Ships its Newest Automation Controller, the BC2

BitWise delivered what their integrators needed-and more.

ENGLEWOOD, COLORADO-JUNE 19, 2013-The long-awaited BC2 automation controller from BitWise Controls shipped out to dealers this week. Many of those who had placed pre-orders did so when news of the prototype was first released.


What made the BC2 such an attractive controller? BitWise Controls designed it to provide the full processing power of a BC1 (their flagship controller), but in a mid-sized form factor that was easier to use and mount discreetly. Integrators had been requesting such a product. They said that many of their designs needed high processing power but utilized only a handful of components-the BC1 was overkill for a smaller system.

BitWise delivered what their integrators needed-and more. Not only did the company design the BC2 with power and a svelte new size, they also designed a new IR chip to transmit a broader array of infrared signals. They added a new browsable database that includes both common and obscure codes, developed a new standalone USB learner, and released Project Editor 1.9 to ensure integrators can easily take advantage of the BC2's virtues.

The BC2 controller is now in stock and available to ship to authorized BitWise dealers. For more information about becoming a member of the BitWise dealer network, send an inquiry to sales@bitwisecontrols.com
