Although Bosch blue power tools are designed to deal with the heavy use handed out by a busy professional, every piece of equipment with moving parts has its limits. If a user were allowed to exceed those limits, it could result in serious damage to the motor, the battery or both.
To prevent overheating from happening, power tools in the Bosch Professional range have a built-in heat sensor which will shut down the motor when the temperature gets too high. Normally, all that is required is to wait for the tool to cool down. It will then be possible to resume work. However, it is bad practice to repeatedly allow this to happen. The cumulative effect will be harmful to motor and battery.
To help prevent your tools from reaching the point where the heat sensor is triggered, Bosch Professional designers have developed a neat way of giving you an advance warning. To take advantage of it, you will need to install the
on your phone. This utility has a wealth of great features for easier tool control. Having connected your Bosch Professional power tool to the app via Bluetooth, you will receive an alert on your phone if the tool reaches a potentially dangerous temperature.
