Service Information for Atlas Copco Tensor ST Series Nutrunner Cables:
The Match Maker – Your adaptor for the cost-saving use of:
- BEIER™ High Performance Replacement Cables Tensor ST Series
- BEIER™ High Performance OEM Cable Repairs Tensor ST Series
The Match Maker adaptor is needed only once per controller.
As soon and the Match Maker is plugged in at the controller, you can operate with BEIER™ High Performance Replacement Cables or with repaired OEM Cables as a Plug & Play
OEM tool cables (OEM = Original Equipment Manufacturer) of the Tensor ST series are fitted with a circuit board by Atlas Copco, which is queried from the controller. The OEM manufacturer utilises
this circuit board in an attempt to prevent the use of qualitatively better BEIER™ High Performance Replacement Cables. However, we would not be the technology leader in tool
cables if we were not able to provide our customers with a solution for this.
Due to technical reasons for quality assurance (high-voltage testing), we must permanently remove the circuit board from the OEM cable. To enable the use of repaired OEM
cables or BEIER™ High Performance Replacement Cables for the customer, we insert the original circuit board into our BEIER™ Match Maker adaptor.
The BEIER™ Match Maker is a pure non-profit service product that allows you to save costs in the easiest manner through our products and services.
Our delivery cycle appears as follows:
Due to our years of industry experience and demand for quality, we knowingly decided against the circuit board in the cable and opted for an adaptor solution for the following reason:
To be able to ensure the highest quality, all new and repaired cables will be tested with a defined high-voltage test at our facility. This high-voltage test would destroy the circuit board
integrated into the cable. Conversely, we must assume that the OEM cables are not tested by means of high-voltage testing. For reasons of quality, we consider this to be alarming.
In our BEIER™ Match Maker, we only use the original circuit board from the OEM cables. The original circuit board of the Tensor ST series is removed in our facilities during the first time repair
or upon scrapping of an OEM cable and inserted into our BEIER™ Match Maker.
The use of our Match Maker is very easy because it must only be inserted in between cable and controller. From then on, it allows our customers to use repaired OEM cables with up to twice the
product life or BEIER™ High Performance Replacement Cables with a product life of up to three times greater.
All of your controllers can be equipped with our Match Maker, wherein the Match Maker is only needed once per controller.
The Match Maker must remain connected permanently on the controller, even if the utilised tool cable is replaced with another BEIER™ High Performance Replacement Cable or with
another repaired OEM cable. The Match Maker must only be removed when using an unrepaired OEM cable and kept for the next use with BEIER™ products.
As only the original Atlas Copco circuit board of the Tensor ST series is inserted into our Match Maker, we can provide our customers with the following delivery variations:
Option 1: Delivery of the Match Maker upon first time repair of an OEM cable
You can save money by having your defective OEM cable repaired. We will provide you automatically with the Match Maker as a non-profit service product at our manufacturing cost if you send us
your OEM cable for initial repair.
Option 2: Delivery upon simultaneously scrapping of an unrepaired OEM cable
This option is well-suited if the damage of the cable does not allow for repair or if you do not wish to have it repaired. You can send us an old, unrepaired OEM cable for scrapping. Upon
simultaneously purchasing a new replacement cable from our facility, the Match Maker is free of charge as we will offer you a scrapping discount.
Option 3: Match Maker Starter Pack
If you do not have an OEM cable available for repair or scrapping, then we can offer you our Match Maker Starter Pack, which consists of:
- One Match Maker Adaptor
- One OEM Tool Cable upgraded with BEIERtm High Performance Tool Connector (connector version and cable length according to your choice)
