The Z2 has been replaced by the ZT Series, click here to go to the ZT Series Webpage.

7 Ranges up to 220lbs
Measures Push / Pull Force

The new Check-Line model Z2 is a high performance, digital force gauge which offers programmable high/low setpoints for go/no-go testing. ORANGE lights up for measurements less than Low setpoint, GREEN for between High and Low setpoint, and RED for over High setpoint.

Store up to 1000 values in memory, which can be transmitted using the Digimatic or serial output ports. Use the real time mode to display load transients, or the peak mode to capture the peak force achieved during a test. Selectable measuring units of lbf, kgf, or Newtons.

Connect a Z2 force gauge with an MX Series test stand and enable force controlled testing. Force control can automatically stop testing when the force value reaches the high setpoint programmed on the Z2 force gauge, or maintain the force between the Z2 High and Low setpoints. Force control is ideal for fatigue or non-destructive testing.
