Bosch Introduces OTC Digital Precision Torque Wrench
Bosch Automotive Service Solutions has released an OTC digital precision torque wrench (part number 7380-E150) that uses a digital display to show torque measured in real-time and at the point of release.
Bosch says the wrench’s sensitivity and precision can also be used to measure bearing preload torque values.
The ¼-inch drive wrench is powered by a 36-tooth ratchet head with measured torque ranging from 1.5 to 150 in-lbs. Clockwise, the wrench is accurate to within +/- 1 percent, with counter clockwise accuracy from 10% to 100% of full scale. The 5-digit alpha-numeric LCD clearly displays torque and measurement settings, controlled by 4 buttons.
When set torque is reached, techs are alerted with an LED light, audible buzzer and vibration to help avoid over-torqueing. The LED will glow yellow, red or green, indicating when the wrench is being used correctly or when pre-set torque has been exceeded.
The new 7380-E150 digital torque wrench is available now through OTC’s distribution partners.
