Shimpo FG-3000R Digital Force Gauge with Integral Ring Sensor


Designed with a compact housing and a large back-lit LCD, the new FG-3000R Digital Force Gauge with integral ring sensor fits perfectly in the hand for ease of use. Readings can be taken in machinery or fixtures where other force gauge adapters are unable to reach or fit. The multi-language menu programming provides intuitive set-up of the instrument to your desired requirements. There are three modes of operation: 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 visual and audible indication if a test passes or fails is provided quickly with the programmable limits providing comparative output with integration of the instrument into your quality system for repetitive testing such as on production lines.

The FG-3000R is the simple, cost effective choice.
