Clarification regarding Thor Engineering’s E2


In 2017, Thor Engineering published an open-source controller schematic in the Next Group, this for members to manufacture their own controller based on the platform so they could make use of the Thor Engineering software. Early on, SafeLine used this platform as a base for the THOR controller. As a response to the shortage of processors last year, Thor Engineering started work on bringing a new design into the Next Group based on a different processor, with the goal of it running Thor software. This software resulted in the E2 – running on the different processor. 

SafeLine NOVA uses the original processor, as there is no longer a shortage of the original processor.
