Makita Auto-Start Wireless System Video

Makita Auto-Start Wireless System (or AWS, for short) is a new technology from Makita that uses Bluetooth technology to do what has previously been impossible with cordless tools. No, it’s not infinite runtime. It’s all about auto tool activation.

With corded tools and a dust extractor with auto tool activation, you plug the dust extractor into the wall and the tool into the extractor. When the dust extractor senses power running to the tool, it automatically kicks on. With cordless tools, there’s the obvious lack of a cord for the tool to signal the extractor.


Makita Auto-Start Wireless System solves this problem. How?
