2 Ranges 500 lbs or 1000 lbs
Measures Push / Pull Force

The Series FGV-HXY Digital Force Gauges offer an enhanced heavy-duty housing allowing them to be utilized in high capacity tension and compression applications. These instruments are utilized in a variety of applications such as, incoming quality inspection, finished goods testing, R&D or almost any portable or force stand testing requirement.

Models are available in 500 lb. or 1000 lb. ranges providing necessary performance for high capacity testing.

The 180° reversible display combined with the adjustable force direction and dual labeled keypad enable these units to excel in both compression and tension applications in any direction. FGV models possess onboard statistical calculations provide fast access to maximum, minimum, average and standard deviation data. Models includes software and RS-232 cable allowing further data analysis on a PC. The FGV-HXY’s 1,000 point memory allows for data exporting in real time or after testing is complete. In addition, the RS-232C, USB and analog outputs provide maximum communication flexibility.
