In both automation and robotics projects, creating an Excel file to list inputs and outputs is a mandatory step.

That's why I've developed this IO List Example File that will save you valuable time.

With this IO list template, you can effortlessly fill in the list of inputs and outputs, including digital inputs/outputs and group inputs/outputs.

And the best part? With just a simple click, a macro will generate the signal declaration, making it a breeze to load modifications with Robotstudio.

The generated EIO declaration can be effortlessly loaded into Robotstudio, saving you considerable effort and minimizing the chances of errors during the integration process.
