Multiple Tools - Connected
« on: January 31, 2018, 01:31 PM »
Hello Everyone,

How do you connect multiple Festools to the Vacuums electrical to do auto start & shutoff?

Hi Scalci,

With the CTs you can add a second socket which allows auto start. I have done it to mine some time ago.

Alternatively you could plug a power distribution/roving adapter into the one socket on the CT and then anything plugged into the sockets on the roving lead will cause the extractor to start.
