OTC introduces digital precision torque wrench

Updated May 17, 2019

Otc 7380 E150 With CaseOTC has introduced a digital precision torque wrench in North America. The tool, part no. 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 preload torque values, according to an announcement.

The 1/4 in. drive wrench is powered by a 36-tooth ratchet head with measured torque ranging from 1.5 to 150 in.-lb. Clockwise, the wrench is accurate to within +/- 1 percent, with counter clockwise accuracy from 10 to 100 percent of full scale. The five-digit alpha-numeric LCD clearly displays torque and measurement settings, controlled by four 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.
