Original Press Release:
Never Over-Tighten a Cordset Again with TURCK's True Torque Connectors
Minneapolis-TURCK introduces M12 true torque connectors that may be hand-tightened to a predefined torque to avoid overtightening. Determining whether or not a connector is properly secured is easy with the true torque connector: Once the proper torque has been achieved, the nut rotates freely, indicated by a clear haptic and audible signal.
The true torque connector is compatible with all existing M12 products, and does not require a tool for connection. Because the connector cannot be overtightened, the integrity of the mechanics and the o-ring connection is maintained. These connectors are available with 3, 4 or 5 poles, both male and female versions in either straight or right-angle configurations.
