Series TT03C digital cap torque gauges are quick and economical solutions for basic handheld cap torque testing. These portable instruments eliminate the need to secure closures in a fixture or more elaborate testing system. A dedicated remote torque sensor with Jacobs chuck is supplied with a universal grip for caps from 0.65-1.55 in (16.5-39.4 mm) diameter (Series TT03C gauges consist of a Series TT03 torque gauge and G1053 cap grip). Series TT03C records both application and removal torque values (clockwise and counter-clockwise directions), and is available in three capacities from 12 to 100 inlb (135 to 1150 Ncm). Series TT03C features a sampling rate of 2,000 Hz, producing accurate results under a wide range of test conditions. A backlit graphic LCD displays large characters, and a menu is available to access the gauges’ features and configurable parameters. USB output is provided for data collection purposes. Set opint indicators are provided for pass-fail testing. The gauges are overload protected to 150% of capacity, and an analog load bar is shown on the display for graphical representation of applied torque. The gauges include MESUR(TM) Lite data acquisition software. Currently displayed readings may be sent to MESUR(TM) Lite for tabulation and one-click export to Excel for further data manipulation.
