GET WHAT YOU REALLY NEED WITH FEATURE MANAGEMENT

Nowadays, things are moving so fast that we must constantly adapt to meet new challenges. Industrial devices are also subject to this trend so Desoutter designs accordingly. That is why we have implemented feature management with the CONNECT in order to Boost your Flexibility!

With feature management , you can finetune each tightening unit according to the requirements for each workstation. This means that depending on the needs, you can activate and allocate a feature on one tightening unit and not on the other one.

3 tightening units (TU) are available: TU PREMIUM , TU ESSENTIAL and TU E-LIT WIFI. These 3 TUs provide different added values level in order that CONNECT platform solution fits at the closest with your production request.

TU E-LIT WIFI Desoutter CONNECT Industry 4.0

TU E-LIT WIFI is focused on Standard joint specifications (class C joint).

TU E-LIT WIFI has been designed to propose a better production follow-up , a better error proofing and a better total cost of owner ship by integrating and controlling a clutch tool on the CONNECT platform.

Compatible tools: ELC-W range

TU Essential Desoutter CONNECT Industry 4.0

TU ESSENTIAL is focused on quality critical Joint specifications (class B joint).

TU Essential has been designed to propose an adapted solution with applications requiring high accuracy tool without full traceability.

Compatible tools: EABC , EPBC , EABS , BLRTC

TU Premium Desoutter CONNECT Industry 4.0

TU PREMIUM is focused on safety critical joint specifications (class A joint)

TU PREMIUM has been designed to propose an adapted solution with applications requiring high accuracy tool with full traceability.

Compatible tool: EABC , EPBC , EABS , BLRTC

Each Tightening Unit activated includes a Standard package. The standard package has been built to meet with more than 80% of requirements.

After a while, if one feature is no longer of value on a tightening unit, thanks to our easy feature rebalancing, you can reallocate this feature to another tightening unit on another CONNECT very quickly and easily.

Feature management is a scalable solution which allows you to upgrade your workstations whenever you want. If a Desoutter feature fits perfectly with your new requirements, you only have to activate it and you are ready to use it!
