The MAX II Ultrasonic Bolt Tension Monitor is the latest gauge addition to our bolting products. It incorporates all of the great features of the MiniMax unit, with some added benefits in terms of features, hardware, speed, and length. MAX II very accurately measures fasteners up to 100 feet in length, and sports our very best effort to date…in terms of overall performance/power!
The measurement is achieved by determining the change in the transit time of an ultrasonic shock wave along the length of the fastener, as the fastener is tightened by any mechanical method. MAX II then interprets this time measurement into a given quantity of time(nanoseconds), elongation, load, stress, or %strain while applying a load on the fastener. Using a variety of processing and automation, the MAX II reduces operator error. With built in data recordation and supporting DakView utility software for Windows PC & MAC OSX, the MAX II offers an easy to use and reliable solution to accommodate the most difficult bolting applications.
