Being high quality precision tools, xxxx torque wrenches can be re-calibrated to restore the original precision (+-4% over nominal value, guaranteed for 5.000 cycles if storage instructions are respected and the tool is set at minimum torque after use).
Torque Wrench is USA, and Tension Wrench is Australian and UK English. by the way, 5,000 is with a comma,
When it clicks off, the click function resets for the next use, so this means you have reached your torque setting and reset to use again, cycled.

Explanation: In a torque-limiting type wrench, the torque is set usually by turning a knob on the end of the wrench. Therefore each time the wrench is used would constitute a cycle.
There are two types of torque wrench, either a torque-limiting system, where the maximum amount of torque applied can be set or a gauge system, which indicates the level of torque being applied.
