New app operates gangway via phone

ADVERTISEMENT

Besenzoni, a Bergamo, Italy-based manufacturer of hydraulic platforms and other boat products, has come up with an app for operating gangways via a cellphone or tablet, according to a company news release.

The free Besenzoni Unit Control (BUC) app works on IOS 9.0 devices or higher and Android 7.0 or higher. When combined with a receiver/adaptor, which can be purchased through Besenzoni’s sales and support network, the app makes it possible to remotely operate gangways – both the retractable and external types.

The free Besenzoni Unit Control (BUC) app works on IOS 9.0 devices or higher and Android 7.0 or higher.

BUC uses simple bluetooth technology, together with the standard infrared or radio-wave remote control provided when purchasing the gangway. The app can be connected to four or eight devices at the same time.

The gangway serial number must be provided at the time of purchase so that Besenzoni technicians can identify and install the bluetooth receiver/adaptor to be linked to that particular gangway.
