High Capacity Digital Force Gauge
FGE-HX Standard Gauge
FGV-HX Force Gauge with RS232 & Analog Output

3 Ranges up to 1000lbs
Measures Push / Pull Force

The microprocessor-controlled, digital FGE-HX and FGV-HX offer the same user-friendly features of our popular FGE/FGV series, but in an extremely heavy-duty case, allowing the gauges to handle larger capacities from 0 to 1000 pounds.

Two knurled steel handles are provided for hand operation and a hanger is included which enables each gauge to be used as a scale.
