Leading supplier of on-demand microwave and RF products, Fairview Microwave has introduced a new portfolio of break-over type torque wrenches used to precisely fasten connections between components and systems.
Fairview Microwave has added a broad range of break-over type torque wrenches suitable for multiple RF connector types including 1.0mm, 2.4mm, 2.92mm, 3.5mm, 7mm, SC, SMA, SMC, SSMA, SSMC, Type N and TNC designs. These RF torque wrenches are offered with hex sizes of 5/16”, 5/8”, 15/64”, 5/32”, 1/4”, 9/16”, 13/16”, 3/4” and 25/32”. The maximum torque values of these break-over wrenches are preset and range from 2 in-lbs to 14 in-lbs depending on the chosen configuration.
Fairview’s break-over style torque wrenches feature a unique pivoting joint that ‘breaks’ when the preset torque force is reached, preventing the connector coupling nut from being over tightened and damaged. Featuring a nickel-plated steel wrench head that is connected to a lightweight, ultra-durable anodised aluminium handle, the new break-over torque wrenches from Fairview come calibrated in compliance with ANSI/NCSLZ540-3 and ISO_10011 standards. The RF torque wrenches are secured inside a properly labelled wooden box for convenient storage.
Greg Arnold, Technical Sales Manager at Fairview Microwave, Inc. explains that the new series of preset break-over torque wrenches provide an accurate and consistent means of applying the proper mating force for a wide variety of RF connector types. He adds that the break-over action prevents over-torqueing for optimal RF performance while minimising wear-and-tear on the connectors.
Fairview Microwave’s complete family of RF break-over torque wrenches is available from stock and can ship same-day.
