Press Release Summary:
When used with LightStar(TM) torque system, Model 600 Handheld Data Collector measures residual torque as qualified by actual fastener rotation. High resolution color screen combines graphic images and data, while reporting capabilities provide real-time audit status and completion summaries. Additional applications include use of rotary transducers to measure power tool performance, hand assembly setting to torque or torque plus angle, and generation of torque/time/angle plots.

ASI Datamyte Releases Model 600 Handheld Data Collector for Torque Applications
Plymouth, MN, USA -- ASI DATAMYTE announced today the general availability of its new Model 600 Handheld Data Collector. The 600 is the newest generation of ASI DATAMYTE's long list of successful data collectors. This first release focuses on integrating and interoperating with the company's LightStar(TM) torque system. When used with LightStar(TM) wrenches, the 600 measures residual torque as qualified by actual fastener rotation. This revolutionary new technology completely eliminates false high readings due to excessive overshoot and false low readings due to wrench release before fastener motion that plague peak residual torque measurement systems. Additional supported applications include the use of rotary transducers to measure power tool performance, hand assembly setting to torque or torque plus angle, and the generation of torque/time/angle plots to document joint performance.
This is a step up from the 501 model, adding a high resolution color screen that pulls crisp graphic images and data together to raise data collection efficiency and accuracy to a higher standard. As with previous models the rugged 600 is light, weighing in at one pound.
"Our customers are always challenging us to come up with ways to take error-proofing to the next level," says Frank Skog, ASI DATAMYTE's product manager for the 600. "Armed with a 600, operators can take on hundreds of fasteners and joints with confidence and speed. A 600 loaded with clear graphical illustrations combined with detailed and relevant on-screen instructions improves accuracy, reduces errors, and cuts data collection and training time dramatically."
Auditors and operators train themselves in a fraction of the time and carry with them a powerful resource that can answer all their questions in real time, without requiring a trip back to their workstation or hunting down information.
The new 600-base Data Collection system includes powerful reporting capabilities which provide real time audit status and completion summaries. The solution is also web-based. Managers located in different plants across the country or around the globe will have immediate access to audit and test plan results. They'll know which measurements didn't get taken and which parts are out of spec, and will be able to react swiftly and decisively.
Used in combination with ASI DATAMYTE's TranSend II utility software, users can achieve automatic data harvesting - leaving no opportunity for operator error. The software provides automatic spec limit and configuration updates to remote data collectors leaving no opportunity for operator error. It also lets you create and download variables data collection setups as well as upload collected data to an Excel(TM) spreadsheet, tab delimited, and/or comma delimited file.
