The Mecmesin CFG+, from SI Instruments , is a low cost digital force gauge designed for simple tension and compression tests and includes RS232 output for easy data transmission to peripheral devices.
Powered by AA batteries, the CFG+ is lightweight and pocket-sized and can be used handheld or fixed to a manual or motorised test stand for basic tension and compression tests.
Based on Mecmesin’s popular Compact Force Gauge (CFG) model, the CFG+ retains the lightweight housing, accuracy of 0.5% of full scale, display of peak hold in tension and compression, and tests in a range of measurement units, including N, mN, lbf, ozf, kgf and gf.
The useful addition of an RS232 port enables easy transmission of data from the gauge to a PC for storage and evaluation. The Mecmesin CFG+ is compatible with EasyPlot graphing software.
The CFG+ digital force gauges ensure quick, easy force application tests in the field and can also be mounted to a test stand for in-house testing of non-critical applications. Seen as an alternative to traditional spring balances, the CFG+ digital force gauges are available in 3 capacities (50N, 200N and 500N), and comes complete with a set of accessories to facilitate immediate testing.
