OTC Introduces New Digital Precision Torque Wrench in North America
October 25, 2018—OTC has introduced a new digital precision torque wrench in North America. The new tool, part number 7380-E150, uses a digital display to show torque measured in real-time and at the point of release. The wrench’s sensitivity and precision can also be used to measure bearing pre-load torque values.
The ¼” drive wrench is powered by a 36-tooth ratchet head with measured torque ranging from 1.5 to 150 in-lbs. Clockwise, the wrench is accurate to within +/- 1 percent, with counter clockwise accuracy from 10 percent to 100 percent of full scale. The 5-digit alpha-numeric LCD clearly displays torque and measurement settings, controlled by 4 buttons.
When set torque is reached, techs are alerted with an LED light, audible buzzer and vibration to help avoid over-torqueing. The LED will glow yellow, red or green, indicating when the wrench is being used correctly or when pre-set torque has been exceeded.
The new 7380-E150 digital torque wrench is available now through OTC’s distribution partners.
