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 allows reliable peak tension and compression readings. Current, peak tension or peak compression readings are displayed by 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, rugged enough for applications in both production and laboratory environments.
