TorqueStar Opta Data Collector

TorqueStar Opta Data Collector

TorqueStar Opta

The original TorqueStar Opta torque data collector revolutionised the torque measurement industry when it was released and is the equipment of choice for the measurement and collection of torque, angle, pulse and force data across the manufacturing and quality environment.

TorqueStar Opta’s range of software features can be individually specified to give a configuration most suited to the requirement, from a simple no-frills readout to a comprehensive audit tool with display of torque or force curves and specialist measurement routines.

Light enough for carrying on a neck strap, yet robust to withstand the rigours of the factory environment, the TorqueStar Opta also sports integrated rubber bumpers to protect finished product from accidental damage.

Key Features
