FGS-100PVH/L Test Stand

FGS-100PVH Motorized Test StandMotorized Programmable Force Test Stand

SHIMPO INSTRUMENT’s advanced motorized, programmable force test stand combined with our line of top quality force gauges; provide a complete force measurement system capable of handling the most precise testing applications. Their all steel construction makes them remarkably rugged while performing with precision. Programming capabilities provide the versatility to tackle a multitude of applications. Two modes of operation, single or continuous cycling allow for a single precise test or repetitive, consistent results. User selectable high and low force set points through RS232 interface or directly through the force gauge allows the test stand to stop at specific force loads while displaying and outputting the displacement. The FGS-100PVH/L motorized test stand offers a wide range of force capacities in vertical configurations and are available in both standard and ultra-slow speeds.


  • 5 user programmable set points for speed, distance and stop time permit customized testing
  • Compatibility with nearly all manufacturers’ force gauges enables flexibility in testing applications
  • Analog voltage output of displacement allows graphing and analysis of data on computer
  • Manually adjustable upper and lower limits restricts movement, allowing for precise testing
  • All gauge functions can be communicated through stand via RS232 interface allowing easy operation and data download
  • Compact, modular design reduces weight, footprint and cost of stand
