Shimpo's FGV-XY Dart 2.0 force gauge takes the well-known design of their Dart series force gauges and adds in the extensive features of their DFS series.
With the addition of a new USB interface for computer data recording, this is a complete force testing solution for countless applications, and is suitable for testing tension and compression forces up to 200 pounds.
This force gauge is ergonomically designed and ideal for uses like incoming quality inspection, finished goods testing, and research and development. It has onboard calculating ability for easy access to maximum, minimum, average, and standard deviation data. With 1000 point memory, data may be exported in real time or after testing is finished. In addition to USB, this unit has RS-232C and analog outputs when you need them.
