Shimpo Instruments FG-3000R-5 Digital Force Gauge w/Flexible Sensor & Data Output - 1100 lb (500 kg) Force Capacity


Combining one of the most compact housings, yet maintaining a large back-lit LCD, the Shimpo Instruments FG-3000R-5 was 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. These multi-language units 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. A menu-selectable display orientation streamlines switching from push to pull testing for portable or test stand applications.
