Fairview Microwave Adds Over 20 New Break-Over Torque Wrenches for Use on RF Interconnect Components
Allen, TX – Fairview Microwave, Inc. a preeminent supplier of on-demand microwave and RF products, announces the release of a new portfolio of beak-over type torque wrenches used to precisely fasten connections between components and systems.
Fairview Microwave has added a broad range of these break-over type torque wrenches suitable for multiple RF connector types including 1.0mm, 2.4mm, 2.92mm, 3.5mm, 7mm, SC, SMA, SMC, SSMA, SSMC, Type N and TNC designs. These RF torque wrenches are offered with hex sizes (also called bit size) of 5/16”, 5/8”, 15/64”, 5/32”, 1/4”, 9/16”, 13/16”, 3/4” and 25/32”. The maximum torque values of these break-over wrenches are preset and range from 2 in-lbs to 14 in-lbs depending on the chosen configuration.
Fairview’s break-over style torque wrenches feature a unique pivoting joint that “breaks” when the preset torque force has been reached. This prevents the connector coupling nut from being over tightened and damaged. The new break-over torque wrenches from Fairview are made with a nickel-plated steel wrench head that is connected to a light weight, ultra-durable anodized aluminum handle. Each torque wrench comes calibrated in compliance with ANSI/NCSLZ540-3 and ISO_10011 standards. These RF torque wrenches are secured inside a properly labeled wooden box for convenient storage.
“Our new series of preset break-over torque wrenches provide an accurate and consistent means of applying the proper mating force for a wide variety of RF connector types”, explains Greg Arnold, Technical Sales Manager at Fairview Microwave, Inc. “The break-over action prevents over-torqueing for optimal RF performance while minimizing wear-and-tear on the connectors.”
Fairview Microwave’s complete family of RF break-over torque wrenches are available from stock and can ship same-day.
