Does Bosch Seat Motor DIO Kit mandatory needed for Bosch Seat Motor?

Hi, there,

Does Bosch Seat Motor DIO Kit (am-3182) mandatory needed for Bosch Seat Motor?
It’s not on The 2019 Robonauts Everybot Bill of Materials and out of stock right now.

Do we have to use it?

Thank you!

This was addressed in the everybot thread.

Thank you for the reply!!

If you don’t want/need to use the integrated Hall Effect Sensor, no. If you do, yes, as without it, the voltage levels do not fall far enough to register as a change to the RoboRIO’s circuitry.

Thank you!
