BG Digital Force Gauge

The BG has been replaced by the new and improved Series-5. Please click here to view the new model

The BG Series Digital Force Gauge is an advanced force measurement solution, with sophisticated measurement capabilities, data outputs, computer control capabilities, and a long list of features and configurable settings.

The BG can stop motorized test stand travel at user-selectable set points, and can also prevent force overload (when used with the ESM motorized test stand). Go / no go testing can also be accomplished with an optional plug-in hi / lo limits indicator.

The BG Series force gauges have reversible housings that allow the user to use the gauge with the load cell shaft pointing up or down, without the inconvenience of upside-down buttons and display. The housing for Series BG and Series EG gauges is reversible by separating the two halves and reassembling them with just one connector - an extra bit of engineering that will make your testing setups quicker and more efficient.

Optional Equipment

Hi / lo limits indicator
Set limit conditions for a test - the indicator will display red lights for high and low limits, and a green light to indicate passing.

Overload protection module
Protects the force gauge against overloads during motorized tests, adjustable from 20 - 110% of gauge's full capacity. For use with ESM motorized test stands.

Set point cable
Stops test stand travel at programmable high and low set points for tension and compression forces. For use with ESM motorized test stand.

Output cable
Send test data to a PC, statistical printer, or other data collector for further analysis.
