Description

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-lan- guage 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 audi- ble indication if a test passes or fails. In addition, a comparator output enables integration of the instrument into your quality sys- tem for repetitive testing such as on production lines.

The display graphics facilitate user comprehension and opera- tion. 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. A menu-selectable dis- play orientation streamlines switching from push to pull testing for portable or test stand applications.
