Bosch Digital I/O Module
The Digital I/O module takes its powers from the EXAConnecT controller and receives its screw driving data from the controllers RS 422 interface. The module has 16 inputs and outputs for exchanging data with a PLC. Configuration is done via the EXAConnecT software (in web browser).
The EXAConnecT controller is capable of supporting up to four BT-EXACT screwdrivers ( via a PLC) with limited data transmission. The Digital I/O module is needed when 2 to 7 BT-EXACT screwdrivers have to communicate detailed information with a PLC.
The I/O module is not required when using an Ethernet connection to a host network. There are different possible PLC configurations for any given situation.
