The New OptiShift Transmission Control System
The OptiShift transmission controller from Baumann Electronic Controls represents the state of the art in electronic transmission control systems. OptiShift is a cost-effective, easy to install, and easy to use transmission controller for performance and heavy-duty applications. It is equally well suited to the finest street rods, 8-second drag cars, off-road vehicles, high-powered diesels, motor-homes, and specialty applications. OptiShift features the smallest size and most useful features of any transmission controller on the market, and is proudly made in the USA.
Our 13 years of transmission control experience have shown us what customers want most from a transmission controller, while modern electronics technology and innovative design allow us to deliver the best features and performance with minimal size and cost. We believe that there is no better transmission control system available at any price. Once you compare the features of OptiShift to the competition, we are sure that you will agree.
OptiShift is the only transmission controller on the market with a native USB interface for fast and easy PC connectivity with no adapter cables. It also features a built-in 3-character display and rotary control for monitoring system parameters. Displayed parameters include transmission fluid temperature, current gear / mode, vehicle speed, TPS voltage, and battery voltage.
The built in tuning interface allows the most common settings to be changed without using a PC or laptop. For most people, the built-in tuning interface will be adequate to dial-in their transmission, while the ultra-fast USB interface and intuitive Windows-based tuning software will satisfy even the most advanced users for no extra cost.
Our wiring harnesses are constructed from high-temperature, automotive-grade cross-linked polyethylene (TXL) wire, and utilize the correct original equipment connectors for each transmission. The standard wiring harnesses are complete and require as few as three connections to produce an operating transmission.
The design of the OptiShift controller and wiring harness are optimized to simplify installation and troubleshooting. Like our intuitive tuning software, our new installation manuals are straightforward, well illustrated, and easy to follow. We also have ample, experienced technical staff to answer your questions and assist you with any problems that you may have.
Most importantly, you will find that Baumann Electronic Controls is 100% dedicated to product reliability and customer satisfaction. OptiShift comes with a five-year full replacement / repair warranty and the best technical support in the industry, so you can be confident in choosing our products.
