Shimpo FGV-HXY Digital Force Gauge


The FGV-HXY Digital Force Gauges were developed to be utilized in a variety of applications such as, incoming quality inspection, finished goods testing, R&D or almost any portable or force stand testing requirement.  The units are used for measuring high forces have capacities up to with reversible display measures two ranges, 500 lbs and 1000 lbs of push/pull force. The unit offers an enhanced heavy-duty housing allowing them to be utilized in high capacity tension and compression applications. 

Models are available in FGV-500HXY (500 lb. high capacity) or FGV-1000HXY (1000 lb. high capacity) providing necessary performance for high capacity testing.

These units excel in both compression and tension applications with its 180° reversible display combined with the adjustable force direction and dual labeled keypad enable. FGV models possess onboard statistical calculations and provide fast access to maximum, minimum, average and standard deviation data. Models include the free TORIEMON software and USB cable allowing further data analysis on a PC. The FGV-HXY’s 1,000 point memory allows for data exporting in real time or after testing is complete. In addition, the RS-232C, USB and analog outputs provide maximum communication flexibility.
