Optional Accessories

Force Logger (optional)

Available to users who need to collect peak data. Please inquire.

SW-1 Data Acquisition Software (optional)

Capture and analyze real-time data from any Imada gauge with a USB or RS-232 port directly into any Windows program. Log measurements and generate a profile graph plus statistical information. Control the gauge functions from your computer.

DB-1 Data Input Button (optional)

DB-1 is a compact, one channel interface that enables users to send measurement data to a PC running SW-1X, Imada data acquisition software or other software. The data input button ‘zeros’ the gauge after sending data to the PC eliminating the need to reset manually.

OH-1 Handle (optional)

Facilitates measurement of heavy loads.
