The Shimpo FG-7000 Digital Gauge is loaded with functionality to simplify your compression and tension testing needs. The multiple-language FG-7000 digital gauges provide menu programming for easy selection and set-up of the instrument to your desired requirements.
Three modes of operation are selectable: Track mode for live readings; Peak mode for displaying the peak reading that remains until a higher peak is sensed; Auto Peak mode which is similar to Peak mode except the peak on the display will additionally reset after a programmed time period. Programmable limits provide a quick visual and audible indication if a test passed or failed on the LCD. In addition, the comparator output can be set up for integration of the instrument into your quality system for repetitive testing such as on a production line.
These high-tech Shimpo FG-7000 Digital Gauge instruments can easily datalog a reading at the push of a button for simple data acquisition or be set to continuous data storage. Data can be viewed on the screen, sent to the optional printer or loaded to be analyzed and graphed on the free software program. The 1,000 point memory with definable groups allows for multiple tests to be recorded and easily separated upon loading.
The FG-7000’s robust housings are designed to fit perfectly in the operator’s hand for portable testing. The large backlit, 180° auto-reversible display with compression/tension icons combined with the dual labeled key pad allows for instant switching from push to pull testing for portable or test stand applications. Models are available from 0.5 lbs to 220 lb ranges providing a large offering for various applications such as incoming quality inspection, finished goods testing, R&D or almost any portable or force stand testing requirement.
