HOLEX Electronic torque wrench HCT

The torque tool of the future is digital

The Bluetooth®-enabled HOLEX Electronic torque wrench / rotational angle wrench HCT not only offers you greater freedom of movement during use but also simple and secure data transmission of your measurement values. Time-consuming manual saving and transferring of values is now a thing of the past!

HCT stands for Hoffmann Group Connected Tools and is the platform for digitising your measurement processes. HCT uses state-of-the-art Bluetooth®-enabled tools and innovative apps to automatically transfer measurement data to smartphones, tablets and computers, meaning you can work faster, more effectively, and more accurately than before.

The electronic HOLEX torque wrench HCT offers you many benefits

  • Quick and easy digital documentation: recorded measurement values can be documented using Bluetooth app or Bluetooth HID.
  • Avoid errors and save time: a parallel Bluetooth connection to the app and the PC ensures that the HOLEX torque wrench can also be configured when connected to a PC (simply transfer saved measurement values via the app).
  • Secure connection mode can be set: no data is lost.
  • Measurement ranges are always reliably achieved: through visual (colour display), acoustic and haptic signals.
  • Tiresome battery changes are no longer necessary: thanks to lithium-ion battery (same battery platform as for the GARANT HCT torque wrench ).
  • More freedom of movement: there are no annoying data transmission cables.

Innovative features support your measurement processes

  • Data output via Bluetooth (using HID directly on a PC or via app)
  • With the help of the HCT apps you can expand the HOLEX torque wrench HCT with numerous additional functions. The HCT Mobile app is available free of charge in the app stores. A Windows app with even more functions is also available for a fee. However, the torque wrench can also be used independently without an app.
  • Display: 2.0-inch TFT colour display, dimmable with battery indicator
  • Display and values: Peak and Track function modes
  • Integral reversible ratchet
  • Protection class IP40, display is splash-proof
  • Password protection and warning signals (haptic, visual and acoustic)
  • Reference dimension input: When using extensions, simply input the new value (additional reference dimension).
  • Angle of rotation measurement: After a one-off activation in the "Go Digital Store", angle of rotation and torque are visible at the same time.

Learn in this video how you can easily and automatically transfer measured values with the new HOLEX torque wrench HCT. Marko Künstler, Senior Project Manager "Product & Process Engineering" at the Hoffmann Group shows the functionality in a practical example.

Unleash the full potential of the HOLEX Electronic torque wrench with the HCT apps

The HCT Mobile app and the HCT Windows app allow you to add a host of additional features to your Bluetooth®-enabled tool. This means that processes are integrated into your production flow even more efficiently and your company’s standard of quality greatly improves.

The apps offer you many benefits:

  • Clarity: One app for multiple tool groups.
  • Ease of use: Tools can be operated and adjusted via the app.
  • Save time: Automatically record the measurement values.
  • Organisation: List and manage your tools via the app in the future.

FAQ – HOLEX Electronic torque wrench HCT

  • 1. Connection to app: Pairing request. What must be selected?

    When you connect to the app, the Pairing Request dialog box appears. It is recommended not to pair by selecting "Cancel". (When pairing, the torque wrench is connected as a HID input device, thus deactivating the keyboard of the mobile device (only iOS).)

  • 2. Keyboard input in the app no longer works. What is the reason for this?

    The torque wrench is paired and thus connected as a HID input device. Go to the Bluetooth settings on the mobile device and unpair the torque wrench. Then reconnect to the app and press "Cancel" when the pairing request appears.

  • 3. The wrench does not transmit any data via HID to the PC even though this is connected and paired with the wrench via Bluetooth. What could be the reason for this?

    If the wrench is already connected and paired with another end device (mobile end device, PC, ...), only this connection receives the data via HID. You have to disconnect the existing connections of the wrench via Menu -> "Connection" -> "Reset Bluetooth".

  • 4. Can measured value data be transmitted via HID directly to the mobile device to which the torque wrench is simultaneously connected via the app?

    No, HID transmission of the measured values is only possible if there is no connection via app on the mobile device.

  • 5. Can I change the name of the torque wrench outside the app?

    No, changing the device name is only possible in the app and only applies to the mobile device on which the name was changed. The name DTWxxx remains in the Bluetooth settings of the respective device and cannot be changed. (Exception: Android devices).

  • 6. When opening the .csv file in Excel, the values are not assigned to the cells. What could be the reason for this?

    The value separator of the .csv file is exported according to the system language of the wrench. For German, French, Spanish, Italian the value separator is a semicolon (;) and for English a comma (,).

  • 7. When transmitting HID data, the HID data is not displayed correctly. What could be the reason for this?

    The HID transmission data can be set on the wrench to allow flexible adaptation to the receiver device. Please go to the menu of the torque wrench and open „Connections“. Here you can set the value separator, record separator, number separator and keyboard language.
