FGE-HXY Digital Gauge

FGE-HX_Force_GaugeHigh Capacity Digital Force Gauges with 180° reversible display & dual labeled keypad for both push, pull applications

The Series FGE-HXY Digital Force Gauges offer an enhanced heavy-duty housing allowing them to be utilized in high capacity tension and compression applications. Simple one button adjustment alters units, while pressing the peak button quickly produces the highest recorded value during the test. The 180° reversible display combined with the adjustable force direction and dual labeled keypad enable the FGE-HXY to excel in both compression and tension applications in any direction. These instruments are utilized in a variety of applications such as, incoming quality inspection, finished goods testing, R&D, ergonomic and isokinetic testing or almost any portable or force stand testing requirement.

Models are available in 500 lb ranges providing necessary performance for high capacity testing.
