RAD Smart Socket Product Overview

RAD Smart SocketWhen you’re working with torque tools, few things matter more than having accurate tools. That’s why we’re excited to tell you about the Smart Socket, an ideal tool for on-site calibration.

What is a Smart Socket?  A Smart Socket is a patented torque transducer made by RAD torque systems that measures true torque applied to the bolt. 

The accuracy on the RAD Smart Socket is +/- .5 percent of reading and can be used with any non-impacting tool, such as a pneumatic, electric, hydraulic or manual torque wrench.  Each smart socket is size specific and goes directly over the nut or bolt head.  The torque output is read directly on the screen of the smart socket or can be “blue-toothed” to an accepting device such as a phone or tablet.  Data can also be recorded and downloaded into an excel file.

Getting caught without a proper calibration certificate can lead to re-work, delays and even fines. Or do you go into a cold sweat, as you realize your certificate is out of date?

Because of this, you’d think most companies would go out of their way to make sure their torque tool calibration was up to date.
