Bestop Wireless PowerBoard NX
Bestop has made an industry first with the PowerBoard NX — a powered running board system that uses a magnetic sensor to wirelessly activate the steps when the doors are opened and closed, totally eliminating splicing into the OEM wiring harness.
PowerBoardNX adds patent pending Wi-Fi component technology, making the board installation easier and faster.
The PowerBoard NX Wi-Fi system components — door sensors that affix to each door pillar without drilling, and a receiving unit solidly located to the frame beneath the truck.
Instead of relying on the factory “door open” wire, these sensors use a magnetic trip.
As soon as the door opens, the battery equipped sensor sends a signal to the receiver, which triggers PowerBoard NX to instantly extend into position.
When the door is closed, PowerBoard NX automatically retracts after a five second delay.
Very different from a fixed side step or nerf bar, powered running boards tuck up under the truck when not needed.
When the door opens they automatically and instantly extend, ergonomically dropping down about 6 inches and out about 2 inches when the doors are opened.
Truck owners and installers may now choose the original hard-wired PowerBoard with all of its continuous improvements, or the PowerBoard NX.
