The TAC digital torque and angle click wrench has been embraced by customers on six continents. Once customers understand the value our tools bring they ask for more.
We've added four new features to the TAC wrench, and a whole new series of TAC wrenches. Introducing the TAC Hardwired Series. The TAC Hardwired Series is identical to our existing TAC wrench in every way but one. Our existing TAC wrench is powered by a single AAA NiMH rechargeable 1,000 mAh battery. The new TAC Hardwired Series is powered by a transformer and the power to the radio is supplied by a tethered cable.
The accuracy is still +/- 4% of indicated value in both directions.
The radio is an identical radio and it broadcasts over the same 12 channels using our proprietary protocol.
Both series operate in Peak and Torque and Angle Monitoring.
The capacities are the same for both the TAC Hardwired and the TAC.
Both provide torque and angle values of where the wrench clicked and where the operator stopped pulling. If you are trying to drive errors from your assemblies, this feature is highly valuable.
With the release of the TAC Hardwired Series, we are adding new features to both the battery-powered and hardwired tool series. These new features require firmware upgrades to existing tools and controllers. Tools and controllers shipping from the factory now will already have the upgrades installed.
The four newly added features require tool firmware R002-5 or later. The Global 400 Controller firmware required is 1.5.1 or later. The Global 400mp firmware required is 4.4.1 or later.
If you are calibrating the TAC wrench, you will need the software and wireless radio interface to calibrate the tool. This package is sold separately. To get the calibration kit, order part number 10711. In addition to SR CONNECT, you'll need spacers that are placed inside the wrench when it is disassembled during the calibration process. We recommend that calibration technicians are trained at our factory prior to attempting to calibrate the TAC wrench.
SR CONNECT is the wireless radio interface that allows the software to talk with the tool. Prior to calibration, the wrench must be released from the controller. Since there is no physical access port on the tool, the calibration table must be loaded into the tool via the wireless radio interface. The SR CONNECT wireless interface facilitates that.
We are producing videos on how to use the SR CONNECT wireless interface. They will be posted on a separate page on our website.
If you need extra length, you can use the 853601 Extension Handle. Like our other tools, the use of the extension handle requires recalibration. For the TAC wrench, recalibration with the Extension Handle in place should be done at the factory.
By building the TAC digital torque and angle preset click wrench with our traditional pin & spring dovetail, you can use well over 200 interchangeable heads that maintain a common centerline. You can learn about the common centerline and our selection of well over 200 interchangeable heads for torque wrenches by visiting our web pages.
