Mountz, Inc. (San Jose, CA) has introduced new torque tool options for ensuring the correct torque is applied in applications involving RF/COAX and SMA connectors. In applications using stainless steel or beryllium-copper bodies, the correct tightening of connectors is important to ensure optimum performance. While the general thought is that hand tightening of RF/COAX or SMA connectors is acceptable, over-torque can crush installation and grounding surfaces, and under-torque can leave the center pin not fully engaged. The TB Break-Over wrenches and Hand Torque screwdrivers can be used to accurately tighten COAX and SMA connectors, with spanners available to suit standard sizes for major connector manufacturers.
