The rugged construction of the FB mechanical force gauges will withstand industrial environments and retain calibration for extended periods. 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. The FB force gauge is an analog force gauge and does not require charging, it is available for use at any time. Many ranges are available to cover all of your force measurement needs (also available in Newtons).

What’s Included with the Gauge?

The FB series is sold in kits complete with force gauge, hard carrying case, five measuring attachments (flat head, conical, chisel, notched, and small hook) as well as a 3 inch extension shaft. An optional handle to facilitate the measurement of heavy loads is also available.

All gauges include a free certificate of calibration traceable to NIST. ISO-17025 certificates are available for an additional charge.

Note: Mechanical force gauges are not recommended for destructive testing or shock load applications.
