Stanley Assembly Technologies has introduced the QA Alpha controller for dc electric fastening. The controller, which has enhanced process capabilities and embedded toolbox software, is compatible with Stanley QPM dc electric tools, from 0.6 to 2,000 Nm and higher. Enhanced process capabilities include linking of multiple parameter sets in a sequence for tightening different fasteners in a workstation. Assignable inputs/outputs eliminate the need for a PLC in many applications. I/O controller options include 24 V, fieldbus, and Modbus TCP. Users may program all of these capabilities via the controller keypad/display or the software by connecting with any Web browser with JavaScript enabled and Adobe Flash Player installed. Communication features include Ethernet, USB port, and two COM ports. www.StanleyAssembly.com Stanley Assembly Technologies
