The Series 2 Digital Force Gauges are designed for basic tension and compression force testing applications up to 100 lbF (500N). The gauge’s +/-0.5% accuracy and 500 Hz sampling rate allow for reliable peak tension and compression readings. Current, peak tension, or peak compression readings are displayed on a backlit graphic LCD display. The gauges are overload protected to 150% of capacity. An ergonomic, reversible aluminum housing allows for hand-held use or fixture mounting and the gauge is rugged enough for applications in both production and laboratory environments.
