This precise force meter is designed to measure tensile and compressive forces and there are two different models purchasable. Depending on the measuring range, the force meter for tensile and compressive force is equipped with an internal or external dynamometric cell. The force meter for tensile and compressive force is a portable precise force meter, providing also the option to integrate it into test benches. For force measurement above 500 N the force meter for tensile and compressive force features an external dynamometric cell attached to a 3 m cable, which can be also mounted into a test bench. The force meter features two measuring speeds, 10 Hz and 40 Hz, that can be set. These allow very precise real-time records of tensile and compressive force. The force meter for tensile and compressive force provides the option to store manually or automatically the collected data in internal data storage on a Mini SD memory card or straight to a computer, in order to evaluate it later on. To evaluate the measurement of the tensile and compressive force, the force meter provides a statistical analysis on the handset. Therefore the relevant information such as number of measurements, total force, mean force, max., min. and individual value are illustrated in a histogram as well as a graph.
