This user friendly, ADM IV Arc Data Monitor can be easily configured to fulfill the requirements of any end users needs. This device can be employed as a stand-alone unit using the "Remote Display" to configure the system and view the results or it can be linked to a PC to accomplish the same task.

The modular design and compact size of the new ADM IV and the fact that it is software configurable permits each user to design and implement their own unique system to achieve the desired end results. Internal memory permits information to be saved at the job site and downloaded to a printer or personal computer at a more convenient time and location.

The ADM IV is a rugged, versatile and cost effective tool that can be arrayed in single and multiple arc configurations. It is a versatile quality control device that is capable of assuring that all of your arc welding parameters meet or exceed "ISO-9000", "QS-9000" standards and your Statistical Process Control (SPC) requirements.

The Windows compatible ADMSTAT Plus software provides a mechanism that permits additional data storage and further analysis of collected data.

Data Monitoring - The portable ADM tests actual weld parameter data and compares it to upper and lower control limits for each parameter. When a fault condition is encountered, the system sets an internal alarm relay, which can be used to shut down the welding system or activate an external alarm.

Data Logging - This mode is for data collection only. Welding parameter data can be dumped to an external printer for hard copy printout and fault analysis or to a compatible personal computer using ADMSTAT Plus software for data storage and analysis.



Our Windows® based ADMSTAT Plus™ program was designed and developed specifically for use with the ADM IV Arc Data Monitor. ADMSTAT Plus is compatible with Windows® XP Service Pack 2 or later operating systems.

The real-time collection and display of the welding data is accomplished using the proprietary high-speed serial communication protocol with the ADM IV™. Single and multiple welds can be gathered, arranged and identified by weld schedule using the appropriate weld collect mode and by employing the graph functions, the user can view and analyze the stored welding data.

Also provided is an ASCII terminal program used to configure or query the current status of a specific value, mode or function of the ADM IV.
