Did you know? You can customize your buttons on our remote controls? We'll print whatever you want on them, in your favorite colors, often at no extra cost. Because the printing is protected by the overlay it will not smear or fade over time. Ask about 'Custom Buttons' when you place your order.

Happy 60th Birthday, Rosie!
BWI Eagle celebrated another milestone birthday for one of our favorite people!
Rosie can almost always be found in the stockroom stocking shelves and managing inventory...
But, she took a break today to enjoy some cake and have a few laughs with her BWI Eagle coworkers to celebrate her birthday.
Fun fact about working at BWI Eagle: Everyone wears the birthday crown or birthday tiarra on their birthday. Everyone. No exceptions.

Happy 50th Birthday, John!
BWI Eagle is celebrating our Product Engineer John's 50th birthday today!
When he arrived at work this morning, John was greeted with an office full of birthday balloons and some good-hearted jokes at his expense. Good thing John has a good sense of humor about being "over the hill".
After putting up with our "old-man" jokes all day, we tried to make it up to John with some birthday cheese cake and a card signed by the entire BWI Eagle Team.
Happy Birthday, John!

Introducing Our Newly Redesigned Eagle/Optima Systems!
Our ever-popular Eagle and Optima product lines of Critical Speed Switches have been updated with some exciting new benefits.
Like our traditional models, the new Eagle and Optima units monitor speed and detect motion in all types of rotating electrical apparatus. The flexibility of one to three independent channels have always allowed for a variety of control functions to meet virtually any application requirement for under-speed or zero-speed detection from 6 RPM up to 800 RPM.
Some of the exciting advantages to our new design include:
- Fiberglass windowed NEMA 4 Enclosure – higher NEMA rating, now water tight, not prone to rust/corrosion like old NEMA 12 enclosure.
- All components sealed inside enclosure---window allows for visual confirmation of operation without having LED lights exposed to the elements.
- Same size enclosure for 1, 2 and now 3 channel units – same footprint means no more re-drilling if additional monitoring channels are required.
- All common speed ranges are included. On-board “DIP” switches allow 1 model to cover multiple application speeds.
- Speed calibration LEDS improved for easy setup at any speed.
- “First Out” capability now available in the 3-channel model.

BWI Eagle Shares Hometown with Another Historic Innovator
BWI Eagle's hometown of Butler, Pennsylvania is known for more than manufacturing world class remote controls.
Butler is the birthplace of one of the most famous vehicles in the world - the Jeep. In 1940, the US Army, knowing they would soon be drawn into WWII, contracted The American Bantam Car Company of Butler, PA to design a new multi-purpose, 4-wheel drive vehicle that could be used to transport troops and equipment over all kinds of terrain. In an incredible 45 days, the engineers at Bantam designed and delivered a prototype: the first Jeep. The Department of the Army was impressed and ordered 600,000 more. Because Bantam was a small company and could not produce the vehicles as fast as the Army needed them, the blueprints were shared with Ford and Willy's to help meet the demand.
Although the Bantam Car Co. closed in 1956, Butler still has a deep love for Jeeps. Butler hosts the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival annually, and holds the Guinness World Record for the Largest Jeep Parade! The record was set in 2015 when 2,420 Jeeps paraded through the city of Butler to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the original Bantam Jeep.
