Each Wrench is Engraved for Easy Identification in the Field
These 5/16” Torque Wrenches have a preset torque value to ensure that the proper amount of torque is supplied when mating two coaxial connectors. The TQW5A is set to provide 5 in-lbs of torque, which is ideal for most SMA connectors, while the TQW8A is set to provide 8 in-lbs of torque, which is ideal for 3.5 mm, 2.92 mm, 2.4 mm, 1.85 mm, K, and V connectors.
When the preset torque value has been achieved, the break-over design will cause the pivoting joint to "break", as shown in the image above. This will prevent further force from being applied to the connector. The wrench's hex head will move back into place once the force is removed. Each wrench is engraved with its preset torque value, torque direction, wrench size, and item # for easy identification in the field.
The preset torque value for each wrench is guaranteed for one year from the date of purchase. If necessary, wrenches may be returned to Thorlabs for recalibration, please contact Tech Support for details.
