The new FG-3000R Series digital force gauges are the choice for simple, cost-effective compression testing. Combining one of the most compact housings, yet maintaining a large back-lit LCD, these units were designed to fit perfectly in the hand for ease of use. The integral button style load-cell attached via the flexible, metal braided cable enables readings to be taken in machinery or fixtures where other force gauge adapters are unable to reach or fit.
The multi-language FG-3000’s provide menu programming for intuitive set-up of the instrument to your desired requirements. Three modes of operation are selectable: Track mode displays live readings, Peak mode records the maximum reading sensed during the test, and Pre-set mode which activates user defined high and low limit set points. The programmable limits provide a quick visual and audible indication if a test passes or fails. In addition, a comparator output enables integration of the instrument into your quality system for repetitive testing such as on production lines.
The display graphics facilitate user comprehension and operation. An analog bar graph provides perspective of current reading in comparison to the full scale range. Pass/Fail icons provide an instant response of the testing outcome while a storage symbol acknowledges when a reading is logged. These high-tech instruments can log up to 500 readings at the push of a button for instant data acquisition. The data can be viewed on screen, sent to optional printer, or uploaded on the free software program for graphing and statistical analysis. Models are available from 220 lbf to 11 klbf capacities providing a large offering for various applications such as, incoming quality inspection, finished goods testing, R&D or almost any portable or force stand testing requirement.
The specially designed integral sensor combined with the many excellent features provided by the FG-3000R Digital Force Gauge make them ideal for usage in difficult compression machinery or fixture testing applications.
