OTC introduces electronic torque wrench
OTC, an SPX brand, has introduced its TPM Electronic Torque Wrench (P/N 3833-25) for use on tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) sensor nuts.
The TPM Electronic Torque Wrench will cover torque requirements from 10 to 120 inch-pounds, eliminating the need for multiple wrenches, the company says.
The wench is easy to use and will provide the versatility needed for torque requirements on all TPM sensors, while also doubling as a standard inch-pound torque wrench, the company reports.
The OTC 3833-25 TPM Electronic Torque Wrench design combines the accuracy of an electronic torque wrench with the speed and ease of a mechanical style. Other key features designed specifically for TPM sensor applications include a slide bar for quickly setting the torque requirements, an indexing head for spinning the nut down easily, and a flashing LED light with audible beep when torque limit has been met.
Specifically designed to torque TPMS sensors to specification, this ¼-inch drive wrench features an indexing head for use in any position. The indexing head allows for use straight (screwdriver position) to spin the nut down quickly, then rotates to a 90 degree position for torque and leverage.
Also included is the OTC TPM T10 Torque Driver (P/N 3833-24) for installing replacement snap-in valves for some Schrader sensors to ensure that the valve core is seated to the proper tightness and to install screws to recommended torque for proper sealing and secure installation.
