500 lb /250 Kg Capacity Digital Force Gauge
The Shimpo FGE-500HXY Capacity Digital Force Gauge measures both push and pull forces up to 500 lbs / 250 kg. Two knurled steel handles are provided for hand operation and a hanger is included which enables each gauge to be used as a scale.

Simple one button adjustment changes units of measure, while pressing the peak button quickly produces the highest recorded value during the test. The 180° reversible display combined with the adjustable force direction and dual labeled keypad enable the FGE-X to excel in both compression and tension applications in any direction.

Typical applications include wallboard, wire pull, wire crimps, trigger pull, brake pedal, aerospace ceramic, springs, food ripeness, corrugated paper strength, blister pack, medical component, muscle strength, ergonomic testing, adhesives, syringe plunger, needle sharpness and many more.
