Model 501T Data
The rugged yet lightweight ASI
DataMyte 501 is the ideal solution for torque audits, especially
when a portable device is required. The 501 is designed to collect
data from a wide variety of torque wrenches, torque transducers and
rundown tools. Easy-to-use with intuitive, menu-driven commands, the
501 features a large LCD visual interface, and an ergonomic design
with keys oriented for both right- and left-hand operation. The
contoured grip reduces operator fatigue and possible motion
- Residual torque on a previously installed fastener can be
measured with Peak, Breakaway, or Restart strategies using a hand
wrench, with or without a crow’s foot extension.
- Real-time installation torque from DC/electric, air stall, or
impulse tools can be captured with Peak or Pulse
strategies. Angle of rotation or pulse count between
Snug and Peak may be captured concurrently with appropriate
- Torque tool cutoff and angle encoder accuracy can be verified
- Hand assembly and rework operations can be performed where a
fastener is to be driven to a given torque or is to be driven to a
given angle past a given torque.
ASI DataMyte offers two support software
options for the 501. Each is used to create data collection
part setups and to upload collected data. They are:
- The ASI DataMyte Setup Editor with RCSL which can also be used
to transfer collected data directly into an ASI DataMyte Quantum
database for further analysis and reporting.
- ASI DataMyte TranSend software which uploads collected data to
ASI DataMyte Applied Stats and Analyst software, to standard
spreadsheet programs, such as Microsoft Excel, or as tab- or
comma-delimited ASCII data files.
The 501 data collector’s LCD panel can
display the torque vs. time curve for the joint being measured. The
selected algorithm captures the desired point or the unique
“pick-a-point” feature lets you choose any point from the torque
curve as the data value. The raw torque, time, and angle components
of the curve as well as all relevant configuration parameters may be
exported to and plotted in Microsoft® Excel™. An
example Excel plot is shown at right.
A standard red/green/yellow dual LED
display provides visual indication of in/out of spec conditions and
caution alerts for operators. An internal buzzer, or an
optional lapel buzzer, provide audible feedback. The 501 data
collector resists damage from oil, water-based cutting fluids,
abrasives, dust, metal chips and filings. Standard power comes from
two rechargeable AA batteries or from an AC adaptor.
