The sig102 with its eight configurable i/o pins allow remote sensors reading and activating actuators over the power line. It is useful in applications such as controlling motors, lights, read sensors, etc.
The SIG102 network consists of one SIG102 device operating as a master, controlled by any ECU via its UART port and up to 255 SIG102 remote slaves. The SIG102 master remotely controls other SIG102 Slaves IOs ports over the powerline and locally controls its own IOs ports.
