Shimpo FGV-XY DART 2.0 Series


The Series FGV-XY DART 2.0 Force Gauges combine a rugged, ergonomic and compact design to provide a complete 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.

On-board statistical calculations provide fast access to maximum, minimum, average and standard deviation data. Units include the free TORIEMON-USB software and USB cable allowing further data analysis on a PC. The 1,000 point memory allows for data exporting in real time or after testing is complete. In addition, the RS-232C and analog outputs provide the DART 2.0 with maximum communication flexibility. Models are available from 0.5 lbs to 200 lb ranges providing a large offering for various testing requirements.

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. 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.
