The BVC Mk2 uses a central Controller box which intelligently sends power to up to four Frames, which are each placed at an entrance to a hive. With the Mk2 it is much easier to manage collection of venom from multiple hives at once.
This 4 Collection Frame system represents a saving of up to $940 compared to four individual Mk1 systems.
The BVC Mk2 – 4 Collection Frames system comprises of the following:
– 1x BVC Mk2 Controller, supplied with a cable with alligator clamps on the end to connect to the 12V-15V power supply of your choice. We recommend a 12v 9Ah SLA battery (not included).
– 4x BVC Mk2 Frames, supplied with cables to connect to the Controller. Each cable is 3m long.
– 8x Glass collection panels (A5 size)
– Glass Scraper
– Amber glass jars
The system was designed in collaboration with local beekeepers who keep 4 frames on a pallet. Please see the example diagram of a typical set up.
