New Torque Tool Tester Accommodates Any-Sized Wrench
Willoughby, OH - Norbar Torque Tools, Inc. introduces the Torque Tool Tester Series 3 (TTT3), with three transducer inputs to accommodate torque wrenches from the smallest to the largest size. Selecting a transducer is a simple matter of rotating a switch, whereupon, torque capacity of the selected transducer is confirmed on-screen.
The instrument operates in all common torque measurement units. Users can also set up their own units to work with virtually any strain gauged transducer. The number of target limit values that can be set has been increased from eight to twelve. This feature gives a clear visual signal as to whether the measured process is within tolerance. The 'low', 'high' or 'pass' signal can also be output via RS-232 to a PC or printer. The new models operate with faster transducer recognition, faster response to key strokes and faster response after a manual or auto reset.
The TTT3 features a pictorial display panel and a membrane keypad for simple selection of operating modes. The control panel uses diagrams of various types of torque tool s. The operator simply presses the button corresponding to the tool under test. TTT3's automatic set up procedures select the appropriate test mode and frequency response. When operated to power, a display screen back light operates and the NiMH battery pack, which provides approximately 16 hours of operation, is charged. Full system traceability is maintained through calibration certification.
