The tightening torque values for AB1VV435 are different. Our catalog indicates 0.5 - 0.7Nm and for UL 8.0 lbf-in.
Both torque values are correct. The difference is due to the fact that the purpose of the torque test is not the same depending on the standard:
UL considers that the product must withstand 8lbf/in without breaking, to check the resistance of the terminals.
IEC considers that the torque of 05-07 N.m is a sufficient value to resist to application conditions.
This is why we recommend in our catalogue the IEC value.
