Simplifies data transfer between
ASI DATAMYTE data collectors, DataMetrics,
third party analysis systems, and spreadsheets.
TRANSEND II | UTILITY SOFTWARE FOR TRANSFERRING DATA
TranSend utility software simplifies data transfer between ASI DATAMYTE data collectors, DataMetrics Analysis and Reporting (DAR), third party analysis systems and spreadsheets.
TranSend II provides automatic data harvesting and automatic spec limit and configuration updates to data collectors – leaving no opportunity for operator error.
With TranSend II you can:
Create and manage setups for ASI
DATAMYTE data collectors.
> Upload data from data collectors to
Excel, tab or The TranSend II setup
editor supports comma delimited files,
and/or the TSII database.
> Upload torque curve plots from 600
data collector to Excel spreadsheetsfor display.
> Update 600 data collector firmware.
The setup editor supports creation of pick lists for piece, characteristic, and subgroup labels. Making setups with several similar characteristics is easy since copy and paste are supported. Variables characteristics, as well as characteristic, subgroup, and piece labels are supported.
SUPPORT FOR EXISTING PRODUCTS
> Importation of TranSend or .dms setups
> Export of data to tab or comma delimited files, or directly into an spreadsheet.
> Data on the TranSend II database is compatible with DAR and web based reporting.
REMOTE CLIENT SERIAL LINK (RCSL) INTERFACE
RCSL is an interface module that expands the functionality of TranSend II to support for existing 501 or 3000 users.
> Transfer of setups and data for 501 and 3000 data collectors
> Upload Torque curves from 501 data collectors
> Upload data to Excel; CSV; tab delimited and TSII database
> Updates for 501 data collector firmware
Express Refresh allows a data collector operator to automatically upload data from all setups and update all setup parameters by simply connecting a cable to the data collector and clicking on a start button. This feature eliminates an ongoing training requirement and adds a measure of security to the system for many applications, as the operator has no access to edit any data collection parameters.
Training is simplified because there are only two steps to the express upload process: connect a cable and launch the program. This simple process also eliminates opportunity for operator errors.
A sophisticated database has been created within the TranSend II database to provide a cross reference between various means used to identify characteristics. Complicated manufacturing operations often struggle with multiple naming conventions used to identify and locate characteristics targeted for measurement and testing. These can include simple descriptive labels or can be based on reference numbers tagged to engineering specifications, assembly documents or suppliers’ part numbers. This can get confusing as Engineering control numbers, Manufacturing operation numbers, Quality Control feature names, or Purchasing contract numbers may all reference the same thing, but are all controlled and understood differently.
It often becomes necessary to develop external manual references or spreadsheets and spend hours trying to keep up with the complexity. With TranSend II, when any of the names or labels used
to identify a characteristic are called up, the advanced manufacturing data structure provides a reference to all the other names or labels associated with that characteristic. Once again, administrative time and effort are reduced and a significant source of error is eliminated. For example, this allows a non-conformance report to Manufacturing to reference the operation number, or to Purchasing to reference the contract number, or to Engineering to reference the control number.
TORQUE CURVE UPLOAD
Using TranSend II, you can upload torque curve data from an ASI DATAMYTE Model.
Torque curve data can be uploaded directly into Excel.
When the Excel option is chosen an Excel macro will produce a chart.
In addition to the torque curve data, all relevant characteristic and gage configuration values are available as well.
This feature delivers two distinct user benefits. The first is that all of the torque, time and angle sampling values are available for further analysis by a fastener engineer for trouble‐shooting or blueprinting a fastening system. The second is that any customer experiencing difficulty taking torque measurements can gain immediate technical support by e‐mailing the Excel spreadsheet containing the curve data, the chart, and all relevant configuration parameters directly to ASI DATAMYTE.
