The new FG-3000 Series digital force gauges are the choice for simple, cost-effective tension and compression testing. Combining one of the most compact housings, yet maintaining a large back- lit LCD, these units were designed to fit perfectly in the hand for ease of use. The multi-language FG-3000’s provide menu programming for intuitive set-up of the instrument to your desired requirements. Three modes of operation are selectable: Track mode displays live readings, Peak mode records the maximum reading sensed during the test, and Pre-set mode which activates user defined high and low limit set points. The programmable limits provide a quick visual and audible indication if a test passes or fails. In addition, a comparator output enables integration of the instrument into your quality system for repetitive testing such as on production lines.
The display graphics facilitate user comprehension and operation. An analog bar graph provides perspective of current reading in comparison to the full scale range. Pass/Fai l icons provide an instant response of the testing outcome while a storage symbol acknowledges when a reading is logged. A menu-selectable display orientation streamlines switching from push to pull testing for portable or test stand applications.
These high- tech instruments can log up to 500 readings at the push of a button for instant data acquisition. The data can be viewed on screen, sent to optional printer, or uploaded on the free software program for graphing and statistical analysis. Models are available from 2.2 to 220 lb ranges providing a large offering for various applications such as, incoming quality inspect ion, finished goods testing, R&D or almost any portable or force stand testing requirement.
1000 Hz Sample Rate combined with +/-0.3% F.S. accuracy provides fast sampling producing great resolution and more accurate results
Three mode operation: Track, Peak & Preset Limits
180° reversible display, tension/compression icons, and vertical printed keypad allows usage as a portable gauge or mounted upside down on a test stand

500 point data collection capability can be viewed on display, sent to optional printer, or uploaded to software package for further analysis
Rugged, ergonomic die cast aluminum construction allows usage in demanding applications
Comparator output function provides user with easy Pass/Fail testing system integration capabilities
Multi-language and engineering unit’s selection provides flexible user comfort
Field Calibration capability eliminates need to send to lab
Calibration Certificate included along with popular adapter attachments
Free Data logging/graphing software available for free download on website
EDMS Data Acquisition Software (free download on website)
Allows full testing of FG Series Force Gauges with live analysis
of the test results. Users can set a delay or a time period for the
test data to record as well as begin or end if a load threshold is
reached. The load can be inverted so the graph shows the resultant
force in the direction desired. Average and peak readings
are automatically calculated, but the user can zoom in on a section
of a graph and recalculate the new average and peak over
the selected portion of the test. Besides acquiring live data, the
EDMS program can also upload previously stored readings from
the gauge. Additionally, the software provides the ability to easily save the data set to a spreadsheet file, plus save the resultant graph as a photo for later review.
