Uses RAD Torque’s transducer technology combined with custom sockets to measure the torque applied to the bolt during a torque cycle.

By innovative design, the Smart Socket is no larger than a standard socket. It’s compact size and innovative technology makes the Smart Socket a
perfect audit tool for inspecting bolted joints and can function as a master calibration for various torque tools.


SMART Socket in case


The RAD SMART Socket can be individually programmed to a set torque, gives a visable PASS or FAIL signal, then stores Data for 2000 Bolts ready for download into your PC.
