Binder-USA has released a torque wrench for the M8 and M12 Binder overmolded connectors that have the newly designed hexagonal locking ring nut. The torque wrench is designed with a torque limiting feature to ensure the locking ring is properly threaded to its mating part. The M8 torque wrench will fit a 9 mm nut and tighten to 0.4 Nm. The M12 torque wrench fits a 13 mm nut and will tighten to 0.6 Nm. Using the torque wrench will prevent the possibility of over tightening the connector, which could destroy the connectors o-ring.
