The force gauge is used to measure compression and tension forces (push and pull). Measurement units are Newtons, Kilograms and Pounds with capacities up to 1,000,000 Newtons. Optional software provides graphical presentation of results and data transfer. All gauges are supplied with standard accessories and calibration certificate and can be hand held or used with a test stand.
Force Gauge Application Guide
Force gauges are used across many industries, in laboratories, manufacturing and educational institutions for product testing and quality control applications. When force is used to activate or move something, the amount of force applied must be within defined limits. Force gauges employ a load cell and the force being sensed deforms a strain gauge. The measurement is transferred to a digital display or mechanical dial display. Force is described as any influence that causes an object to undergo a change in its movement, direction, or geometrical construction. Units of measurement can be in Newtons, Kilograms or pounds.
The SI unit of force. It is equal to the force that would give a mass of one kilogram an acceleration of one metre per second per second.
Kilogram Force (kgf)
The kilogram-force is equal to a mass of one kg multiplied by the standard acceleration due to gravity on Earth, which is defined as 9.80665 metre per second per second. 1 kilogram-force is equal to 9.80665 Newton.
