for data exchange
(FreeSet-3 models only)
WIFI Communication • Cordless communication between controller and all FreeSet-3 smart riveting tool models. Depending on configuration, this device can control up to 20 riveting tools.
Force and Stroke Data • Can be exchanged between tool to controller, and controller to your PLC or plant control system via Profibus, Profinet, Open Protocol, PFCS, or IPSQ. Optionally pass/fail can be conveyed using 24V discrete I/O.
PLC Integration • Can be used to lock down fixtures, count and qualify rivet sets and release fixtured parts.
Trend Analysis • Can be reviewed by collecting the data stored local to the controller. Access to tool configuration is possible using FreeSet Manager software, or IP App.
Fault and Maintenance Management • Any events that trigger a fault are recorded in the data collected. Tool maintenance reminders can be set using the FreeSet manager software.
Breakthrough Technologies • The first riveting tool of its kind which can barcode scan, use WiFi to communicate with external systems and qualify the rivet using the load cell. Measuring forces with a load cell, are far more accurate over time in comparison with transducers, current measurement and strain gages.
Quality & Process Monitoring • Count rivets, qualify the process, communicate with external system, measure your results over time, document them and prevent failures by stopping them before it continues to move through production.
