IDM Instruments has released a low-capacity digital force gauge. The BGO 12 tests up to 50g at full scale, with a resolution of 0.02g and ±0.2% accuracy.
Typical applications include compression and tension testing of medical devices, membrane switches, springs and electronic and mechanical components. The gauge features RS-232, Mitutoyo, and analogue data outputs, peak data recall and high and low set points.
The instrument is supplied in a cushioned carrying case with an ac adapter, rechargeable battery, implements, user's manual and a certificate of calibration traceable to NIST standards.
