With several display options and quick response time.
With feature management fine-tunes the Tightening Units by loading only features needed for each application.
Easy feature rebalancing from tightening unit to another one.
Transfer DATA and settings from one CONNECT to another in a fast and effective way.
With easy wireless pairing, tool is paired in less than 10 seconds
Easily removable memory allows transfer of DATA and settings from one CONNECT to another in a fast and effective way.
The feature management platform is designed to easily implement new features in your production line to meet your future challenges.
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 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 DIGITAL WRENCH is focused on safety and quality critical joint specifications (class A and class B joints)
TU DIGITAL WRENCH has been designed to propose a full traceability of highly accurate manual tightening operations, and integration of Quality Joint Checks in Production.
Compatible tool: QShield-C
Each Tightening Unit activated includes a Standard package. The standard package has been built to meet with more than 80% of requirements.

|CVI Logix program activation|
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!
