Fastening Controller Utilizes Customized Digital I/O Module

Application Overview

Assembly line automation tools have to be versitile and easy to use. In the past, one of the inherent drawbacks of similar fastening controllers has been the user interface, which tended to be unnecessarily complex and difficult to use. This assembly line automation tools manufacturer addressed this with their controller, which offers a simple user interface and improved speed with the potential for fewer errors.

While developing the controller, Diamond Systems was approached because of it's vast computing expertise with high reliability, small formfactor platforms.

Customer's Requirements

The physical requirement for this device called for a small, PC/104 sized module with 16 digital I/O lines (with bi-polar polarity) that was rugged enough to perform well in a high temperature environment.

Diamond's Customization Program

Diamond Systems had been providing this manufacturer with thousands of its Opal PC/104 modules for use in their fastening controllers for over 10 years. This project called for some customization on the standard product. Diamond's modified the verion of the Opal board that they had been using to include bi-polar digital I/O. This is just yet another example of how Diamond Systemsí extended services program can benefit customerís broad spectrum of application challenges.
