Global 8 process controls and monitors up to eight PST-equipped pneumatic clutch tools, 1100-Series Exacta® 2 digital torque wrenches, and SLTC -FM 2.4 GHz preset torque wrenches.

When multiple tools of multiple types or many tools of the same type must be used at a single cell or station, one of the Global 8 series may be the assembly torque process monitor for that location. Also, be sure to explore the Global 400 capabilities. 

A large and readily-visible display assures the operator is always aware of the status of each tightening, the progress through each batch of fastenings, the correct tool for the currently-active parameter, and other information required to assure the fastening is completed to specification.

The Global 8-Ethernet controllers all have Ethernet ports, and one of the four available communication protocols pre-installed at the factory. Available protocols include Open Protocol, Ethernet IP, PFCS, and ToolsNet. The lower display and keypad provide a Human-Machine Interface for programming elements of the communication. 

If your Global 8 is Ethernet driven, you'll need a standard Ethernet cable to drive the controller. 

These units all have relays and a port for connection to your 24 VDC control system, or can be configured to power a light stack. You'll need additional cables to drive peripherals.

*Radio communication signal strength can be impacted by brick walls, large steel beams, an excessive XBee radio signals on the same channels. 

**PST works with triggered or levered pneumatic tools, "push to start" tools will not function with the PST 2000 or the PST 1200.

Global 8 process monitors do not have a USB connector for computer communications or 9-pin serial connector for a serial printer.

The Global 8 Manager software performs input, data logging and facilitates programming tasks for the Global 8.

Understanding The Common Centerline: Not having a common centerline is one invisible place where your error-proofing approach can introduce errors instead of eliminating them. If you want to know how to calculate a common centerline and why it is important this page is for you.
