Norbar Torque Tools has launched a new version of its TruCheck torque wrench checker, the TruCheck 2, which it says aims to provide an affordable wrench checking solution while dispelling reservations over the complexity of using such equipment.

The new checker is said to be ideal for torque wrench users working on commercial vehicles who require a quick and easy means of checking their wrenches.

“The new checker incorporates a range of redesigns and improved features whilst retaining all of its predecessors’ easy-to-use properties,” said Norbar.

TruCheck 2 is available in 14 models with 7 different torque ranges from 0.1 N·m – 2,100 N·m, and each available in standard and Plus versions. All models in the range are accurate to within ±1 per cent of reading and are supplied with a traceable calibration certificate. All models have a robust aluminium housing.

The Plus versions of TruCheck 2 allow a selection of torque units, three modes of operation (Click, Dial and Track) and the ability to store up to 15 targets. A choice of 10 different languages are available for the operator to select from.

In addition, the Plus versions come equipped with a display which changes colour relative to target status, whereby yellow indicates that the wrench is under target, green indicates that the wrench is within target tolerance, and red signifies over target.

TruCheck 2 has an in-built Micro USB 2.0 port that enables power from any USB power source. The Plus version allows for both power and data transfer simultaneously.
