Please Note: The PST 1000 Has Been Replaced by the PST 2000 Which Has Multiple Advantages Over the PST 1000.

The PST 1000

The PST 1000 is a Pneumatic Sensor Transceiver that controls and monitors pneumatic pulse tools during assembly processes.

Have a pneumatic line in your assembly? Want the usage managed with accessible data?  The PST 1000 is the latest intelligent tool from the labs at Sturtevant Richmont. The PST 1000 is tool agnostic. It works with all clutch-based impulse tools. We don't care about the brand of the air tool. We care about getting the greatest possible accuracy from that tool. 

The PST 1000 functionality is simple: create a standard with the specifications you want and then save it to the Global 8 or Global 100 with which it is paired. Accuracy is ensured because the PST 1000 measures air pressure in the motor compartment. Measuring air pressure anywhere else doesn't make sense. Aren't there already enough variables in air pressure?

Log in with the Global Manager Software, open the PST 1000 profile screen and PST 2000 air pressure and time graphthen drag the air pressure and time factors until you have the fastener profile you want.  

Run the fastener and test the resulting torque value on that fastener. Making any changes to the profile is still drag and drop. 

Once the standard is in place the PST 1000 and the Global 8 or Global 100 process monitor works together to evaluate each subsequent fastening. The PST 1000 uses a radio transceiver to receive instructions and report results. The Global process monitor provides visual and auditory feedback on the results of each fastener.  

See the Global 8 Introduction Video for more information.

The PST 2000 is easy and simple to add to your line and connecting the radio in the PST 2000 is as easy as flipping a switch.

The PST 1000 has two power options: battery or AC powered. In high activity applications
 (two or more fastenings a minute) we recommend using NiMH AA rechargeable batteries. In high activity applications, these batteries have proven to last longer and provide a greater number of cycles per battery.

If you tighten one fastener per minute or less than 10 fasteners in 10 minutes, the alkaline battery provides more cycles per battery. For more information about batteries see our video Assault With Batteries and How To Kill a Torque Wrench. Or, click on the image of the 4 rechargeable batteries in the paragraph above.

Please Note: The PST 1000 works with the Global 8 and Global 100. We do recommend that you upgrade to either a PST 2000 or a PST 1200 depending on your Global Series process monitor and your application requirements.
