Day in and day out, mechanics routinely tighten a variety of components to specific torque values. Despite their vast experience and attention to detail, even the best and most efficient mechanic can occasionally over-tighten or under-tighten a component, leading to vehicle damage or even catastrophic failure. Using a patented Double Gear Sensing System (D.G.S.S.), the Brown Line Digital Torque Wrench greatly reduces the possibility of human error with the following features.
Quickly and easily enter a “Target Torque” by using the intuitive button design. The backlit LCD will then display in real time the exact amount of torque being applied.
Audible and Visual Signals
A series of LEDs and a buzzer alert the user as the Target Torque is being approached - and then hit. This helps to eliminate over-torquing as the user is able to adjust their pull speed as the Target Torque nears. Once the Target Torque is hit, a red light and buzzer simultaneously alert the user to stop pulling.
Peak Torque Display
After applying torque to a fastener, the wrench will display the Peak Torque (highest torque value) so the user knows exactly how much torque was applied. No more guessing as to the final torque.
Double Gear Sensing System Technology (D.G.S.S.) and 8-bit microprocessor produce precise torque readings of +/- 3.5 percent clockwise and counter clockwise. And unlike a traditional “click” style wrench, the Brown Line wrench does not have to be turned down to its lowest setting when being stored. This is the biggest reason why torque wrenches go out of calibration.
At the press of a button convert from Ft-lbs to Nm to In-lbs. No more wasting time doing the calculations by hand.
A ½” ratcheting drive and a range from 15 to 150 Ft. lbs makes the Brown Line wrench perfect for automotive use — from torqueing lug nuts to doing engine work.
The Brown Line torque wrench uses specially engineered plastics that resist the most common oils, gasoline, and chemicals you would encounter in a garage. And the soft-grip overmold ensures comfort when being used.
