Shimpo Force gauges with external load cell: instrument description

External load cells are immediately recognized when connected to the display base. Two styles of load cells are available for your specific testing needs. The first is the ‘S’ Beam style load cell for both tension and compression tests with capacities ranging from 220 lbf (100 kgf) up to 4500 lbf (2000 kgf). The second style available is the ‘Ring’ type load cell for compression applications with capacities ranging from 2250 lbf (1000 kgf) all the way up to a hefty 44,000 lbf (200 kN).

The multiple-language FG-7000L’s provide menu programming for easy selection and set-up of the instrument to your desired requirements. Four selectable modes of operation include: Track mode for live readings, Peak mode for displaying the maximum reading, Auto Peak where the peak resets after a programmed period of time and First Peak where only the initial peak is recorded once a decrease is sensed. The display has two selectable operations, numerical view with bar graph or graphical view with bar graph. In graph mode if alarm tolerances are set, the user is presented a quick indication where their process is in relation to their upper and lower limit graph lines and can immediately determine pass/fail status.

These high-tech instruments can easily data log 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. In addition, the comparator output can be set up for integration of the instrument into a quality system for repetitive testing such as on a production line.
