Irvine, Calif. – Pasternack Enterprises, Inc., an industry leading manufacturer and global supplier of RF and microwave components, today announced the release of a brand new line of Preset Break-Over RF Torque Wrenches used to precisely tighten connections between components and systems.
Pasternack Enterprisesâ€™ PE5019-XX series of break-over torque wrenches allow accurate mating force (measured in â€śin-lbsâ€ť) when assembling and disassembling a variety of RF coaxial connectors. The unique feature of break-over torque wrenches is that they will â€śbreakâ€ť at the pivot point once the torque value force is achieved, effectively preventing the user from over tightening the coupling nut on the connector. A broad range of break-over torque wrench sizes are available, including 1.0mm, 2.4mm, 2.92mm, 3.5mm, 7mm, SC, SMA, SMC, SSMA, SSMC, Type N and TNC connector designs. Hex (bit) sizes range from 5/32 [4.0mm] to 13/16 [20.6mm] and include 5/16, 5/8, 5/32, 1/4, 9/16, 13/16, 3/4, 6mm and 20mm mini-DIN. Preset torque values range from 2 in-lbs to 14 in-lbs depending on type and style.
Pasternackâ€™s new RF connector torque wrenches are lab-quality tools made with a durable nickel-plated steel alloy wrench head connected to a light weight, blue anodized aluminum handle. These break-over torque wrenches are secured inside a latched and labeled wooden box for proper storage. Each calibrated torque wrench meets MIL-STE-45662 standards and comes with a Certificate of Calibration.
â€śOur new series of preset break-over torque wrenches provide a reliable and accurate means of applying the proper mating force for a variety of RF connectorsâ€ť, explains Steve Ellis, Interconnect Product Manager at Pasternack Enterprises, Inc. â€śThe increased number of bit sizes and torque settings now offered covers the majority of lab and production application requirements.â€ť
