Digital Torque Tester debuts

When technicians reach for a torque wrench, they need to know it’s properly tested and ready to perform. The new Digital Torque Tester (DTT) from Snap-on Industrial ensures just that, company officials say.

The DTT comes in 1/4”, 3/8”, 1/2” and 3/4” sizes, and features a touchscreen pad to capture peak torque values during a test in real time. All data can be downloaded to a PC.

Six different styles of the DTT are available, and come in test ranges between 5 and 600 foot pounds. Accuracy is ± 0.50% ±1 count CW and CWW from 10 to 100% of full scale at 25° Celsius, company officials said.

Additional features include:

  • Integral transducer and sturdy housing allow mounting in virtually any position
  • Transducer: full bridge strain gage, 350 ohm, 1500uE, 3mV/VF.S, 3.75 excitation
  • Units of torque: Nm, kgcm,,, in-oz.
