Shimpo FGE-XY DART Series


The Series FGE-XY Digital Force Gauges combine a rugged, ergonomic and compact design with exceptional accuracy to provide a solid force testing instrument. These instruments are utilized in a variety of applications such as, incoming quality inspection, finished goods testing, R&D or almost any portable or force stand testing requirement.

Simple one button adjustment changes units of measure, while pressing the peak button quickly produces the highest recorded value during the test. The 180° reversible display combined with the adjustable force direction and dual labeled keypad enable the FGE-XY to excel in both compression and tension applications in any direction. Models are available from 0.5 lbs to 100 lb ranges providing a large offering for various testing requirements.

Typical applications include wallboard, wire pull, wire crimps, trigger pull, brake pedal, aerospace ceramic, springs, food ripeness, corrugated paper strength, blister pack, medical component, muscle strength, ergonomic testing, adhesives, syringe plunger, needle sharpness and many more.


  • 1000 Hz Sample Rate provides faster sampling producing better resolution and more accurate results
  • High accuracy +/-0.2% F.S., ideal for strict tolerances
  • Measure and record compression and tension tests- permits true “push-pull” testing
  • 180° Reversible display and dual printed keypad allows usage as a portable gauge or mounted upside down on a test stand
  • 1 million operation load cell with superior overload protection provides a long-life, damage free product
  • Rugged, ergonomic die cast aluminum construction allows usage on production floor
  • Variable display response rate aids viewing readings
  • Quick retrieval of peak measurement with a single push button
  • Flexible user preference with one button selection of engineering units
  • Dual power capable with rechargeable battery or AC line voltage
  • CE Mark
