The SM-200 Handheld Reader is a handheld instrument that has the function to read and store data from both the CMS (Continuous Monitoring Sensor) and PMS (Periodic Monitoring Sensor) BoltSafe washers. The user can monitor the residual bolt load directly on the instrument.
With the PC connection cable you can send the measured bolt load data to a PC afterwards. You can analyze this measured bolt load data with the special software called “BS Report Generator”.
Network with PDI
With the PDI box and a network of CM-1000 boxes, you can visualize the bolt load continuous. You can assemble up to eight BoltSafe sensors at one CM-1000 box and you can use up to 31 CM-1000 boxes in a network to one PDI box in combination with a PC. You can analyze the continuous bolt load data with the special software called “BS2000 Network Monitoring”.
Network with PDI-NT
With the PDI-NT box, you can visualize the bolt load on the BoltSafe sensors continuous. The difference with the PDI box mentioned earlier, is that with the PDI-NT no PC is needed and the PDI-NT provides various output signals, like 4 -20 mA or serial data. Other functions are:
- Generating alarm at too high or too low bolt load
- Trending the bolt load during a predefined period
- Creating custom-made applications
- Connect the BoltSafe washers to other platforms
RS-232 and Analog converter
With the BoltSafe RS-232 and Analog converter it is easy to connect a BoltSafe CMS sensor (Continuous Monitoring System) directly to any Data acquisition system, computer or PLC. The free Windows-based software allows users to easily readout the load that is applied to the sensor.
The software can also be used to adjust the moment when the BoltSafe RS-232 and Analog converter has to switch on or off (in kN or as percentage of full scale). This makes it possible to use the converter standalone; to activate an alarm or warning light.
The RS-232 and Analog converter can also be used to switch off a remote control or even a complete pump or (electric) torque tool. The complete serial communication protocol will be provided, which also enables users to use their own software and adjust settings via their computer or PLC.
- Digital readout in RS-232
- Analog readout: 0-5Vdc, 0-10Vdc, 0-20mA and 4-20mA
