  • highest precision for lowest torque ranges
  • small size for confined spaces
  • color touch screen with 4.3 inch TFT display
  • torque control/angle monitoring

  • 100 user-tagable sequence programs

The DEPRAG sequence controller AST5 is the ideal controller for manual screw assemblies in combination with the tried and tested DEPRAG EC screwdrivers of the MINIMAT-EC (size 22) series within a torque range of 0.01 Nm - 2 Nm.

Operator friendly

The sequence controller already contains standard screwdriving programs for the tightening to torque and loosening to angle. Parameters can be input directly on the touch screen to suit different screwdriving tasks.

The AST5 allows the free programming of your manual screwdriving sequences for handheld screwdriving tools. If required, specific screwdriving programs can quickly and easily be set-up using the already existing basic programs.

High number of programs

Use the color TFT touch screen to quickly access 100 programmable user programs. Individual application profiles can be selected using a program number or a user-tagged program name.

Based on web browser

Use an established web browser or the touch screen to set parameters and access controller functions. Additional software is not required.

Small size

Due to its small size, the controller is particularly suitable for use at manual workstations where there are confined spaces.

Storage, documentation and evaluation

The AST5 records the screwdriving results for the last 7 production days and saves them until they are retrieved via the Ethernet connection.

Additional features include the graphic display of screwdriving graphs, integrated PLC functions, comprehensive analysis options and the option of combination with an automatic screw feeding machine.   

A software update service is optionally available. Also available are comprehensive software packages for screw joint analysis, documentation and process data collection.
