FG-3000 Digital Force Gauge Shimpo
The new FG-3000 Series digital force gauges are the choice for simple, economical tension and compression testing. Combining a compact housing, yet maintaining a large back- lit LCD screen, these units are designed to fit snug 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 available: Track mode displays live readings, Peak mode records the maximum values sensed during testing, and Pre-set mode, which activates user defined high and low limit set points. The programmable limits provide a fast visual and audible alert if a test passes or fails. Additionally, a comparator output enables integration of the instrument into your quality system for repetitive testing, for example 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/Fail symbols 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.

The FG-3000 series can log up to 500 readings with the push of a button for instant data retrieval. The data can be viewed on screen, sent to a printer, or uploaded on the free software program for graphing and statistical analysis.
