The HTGS hand-held digital torque tester features a remote torque sensor with a Jacobs chuck. The chuck is designed to grip a test sample, a screwdriver bit or a wide range of other fixtures. The HTGS measures torque in both clockwise and counter-clockwise directions. The display shows measurements in lbf-in, ozf-in, kgf-cm, or N-cm.

The HTGS torque tester features easy to use menus to make programming simple. Select units, reverse the display, set high/low setpoints, and set all other functions using plain language menus. The bright electroluminescent display shows torque value, unit, and peak, and can be configured with additional user-selectable data including memory data, +NG count, high/low setpoints, 1st and 2nd peaks, angle value (optional HTGA model), etc. The HTGS also has a set of 3 indicator lights. The orange, green and red indicator lights can be used in conjunction with the programmable high/low setpoints for pass/fail testing. Color-coded LED indicators alert the user to Go/NoGo conditions. Process and transmit 2,000 actual data per second, not just the peak from a high sampling rate.

The all-new HTGS gauge includes the USB device driver and ZT Logger data acquisition software for windows. ZT Logger can download data from the gauge memory or capture a continuous stream of data at 10 data/second. Zero the gauge or capture data while at the computer. All gauge programming can be set and saved from the software.

Optional Force Recorder Data Acquisition Software is designed to capture up to 2,000 data per second. No other gauges come close to this speed! Other functions include; gauge programming, graph overlay feature, automatic statistics generation.
