Shimpo FGV-XY Series Handheld Force Gauges
Shimpo FGV-XY Series Handheld Force Gauge

Shimpo's FGV-XY series gages from Larson Systems feature a rugged, ergonomic and compact design to provide a complete force testing instrument for a variety of industries. With free software and Toriemon USB, the FGV-XY provides a total package for force testing up to 200 lb.

The ergonomically designed FGV-XY series provides an easy to use force gauge for incoming quality inspection, finished goods testing, R&D and other force-related applications. Onboard statistic calculations provide fast access to maximum, minimum, average and standard deviation data.

The USB port and 1,000 point memory allows for data to be easily exported in real time or once testing is complete. In addition, the RS-232C and analog outputs allow the FGV-XY series maximum flexibility.

Applications where the FGV-XY series excels: wallboard, wire pull, wire crimp, trigger pull, brake pedal, aerospace ceramic, spring, food ripeness, corrugated paper strength, blister pack medical component, muscle strength and ergonomic testing.
