The force gauge with an external load cell is designed for the measurement of compressive forces at hard-to-reach measuring points. The load cell is connected to the force gauge by a sensor cable of approx. 3 m length and thanks to the small cell dimensions it ensures a versatile application. The force gauge load cell has several threaded holes on the underside, which allow a fixed installation.


The force gauge can operate at a sampling rate of up to 1600 Hz. The sampled measured values are displayed as an instantaneous value, as well as in a graph trace directly in the force gauge.


The measurements can be stored in the internal memory or transmitted via USB interface with the included software with a maximum of 800 Hz as a live measurement.


The PEAK Hold function allows freezing of the highest measured value in the force gauge until this value is exceeded or cleared.


The force gauge offers the option of storing two limit values, which are continuously compared with the instantaneous value. When exceeding or falling below these limits, a signal is displayed in the display of the force gauge, as well as a response via external interfaces, e.g. this can be used for the control of a testing machine.
