Force Measuring Equipment

MF Series Mechanical Force Gauge
Incredibly durable and user-friendly, our economical mechanical gauges are excellent for repetitive testing in assembly line or quality control lab applications. The peak mode features an easy push-button reset; this is especially helpful for doing repetitive testing in an assembly line or quality control lab. The real time mode allows you to see force changes as they occur.

Ergonomically designed for handheld use, both gauges may be used with the optional handle (great for loads over 15 pounds). Response time is immediate. Large, easy to read dial indicators are designed to reduce gauge parallax.

The MF gauges feature a die-cast aluminum housing. Mounts easily to test stands for even greater control of repetitive testing. Two year warranty.

Available Ranges:
2, 5, 10, 20, 30, 50, 100lbs
1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 20, 30, 50Kg

FGV-X / FGE-X Digital Force Gauge

Our workhorse gauge just got better! Faster, smarter, easier to use!

The 1000 series, with its fast 1000 Hz update rate, is able to capture the highest force peaks. With variable display update rate and the same superior accuracy as the DFS series, these new gauges feature unique 180 degree flip displays, permitting the user to read the display right-side up. Additional enhancements are; dual direction keypad, variable baud rate for SPC applications, selectable force direction indication, and selectable power on/off settings.

Designed to ergonomically fit in the palm of your hand, the rugged, all metal construction of the FGE-X and FGV-X permit accurate measurement and display of compression and tension forces up to 100 pounds. (up to 500 lbs using the FGE-200HX and FGE-500HX)

The FGV-X 1000 series gauges include RS-232c and analog outputs, as well as an overload output signal for gauge protection.

FGV-HX / FGE-HX High-Capacity Digital Force Gauge

The microprocessor-controlled, digital FGV-HX and FGE-HX series offers the same user-friendly features of our popular FGV-X and FGE-X series, but in an extremely heavy-duty case, allowing the gauges to handle larger capacities from 0 to 500 pounds. Two “knurled” steel handles are provided for hand operation and a hanger is included which enables each gauge to be used as a scale.

The FGV-HX series includes all FGE-HX features plus RS232C and analog outputs and an overload output signal. One year warranty.

Available Ranges:
200 & 500lbs.

User Selectable units: Lbs, Kg, N

DFS Series Precision Digital Force Gauge

Microprocessor-controlled, the DFS series represents a unique approach to force testing. Designed to be handheld or stand mounted, the DFS features many advanced functions typically included on gauges costing twice as much. Intelligent and versatile, these high performance gauges are easily user configured for sampling and display update rate, units of measure, baud rate, data output stream, memory type and high and low set points. Large memory capacity (100 samples) and on board statistical processing allows the DFS series to operate with or without computer control. Additionally, each gauge possesses three types of signal outputs for data collection and function analysis. One year warranty.
