Imada Standard FB Force Gauge: instrument description

Ergonomic design makes it ideal for hand held use, or it can be mounted to a test stand. The Zero-Tare ring allows you to zero the gauge to compensate for measuring attachments and changes in measuring position. The real time/peak hold selector switch allows you to observe transients or capture peaks. Many ranges are available to cover all of your measurement needs (also available in Newtons).
