Mechanical Force Gauge: Model X-PP
Model X-PP with Compression/Tension Calibration
Force gauges calibrated in push-pull are available in four capacities in pounds ranging from 50-0-50 lb up to and including 2,500-0-2,500 lb and three metric capacities from 50-0-50 to 1000-0-1000 kg. Accuracy is ±2% of maximum dial reading (based upon total capacity of both compression and tension scales).
Model X-PP gauges in capacities up to and including 500-0-500 lb or 250-0-250 kg are supplied with a set of self-aligning spherical rod-end connectors for tension loading. Force is applied to connectors through a hardened steel pin which must be slip fit in connector holes.
2,500-0-2,500 lb and 1000-0-1000 kg capacity gauges are equipped with two shackle adapters, shackles and pins. Shackles must be removed when compression load is involved. Force is then applied against shackle pins in a suitable test setup.
All push-pull gauges are supplied with a compression-loading spherical ball fitting for compression loading.
Proven accuracy and ruggedness sets our mechanical force gauge apart in the force measurement industry. The “D” shaped deflection beam is the heart of the Force Gauge system. Highly engineered materials with close machining tolerances and proper heat treatment provide optimum strength and spring characteristics. Two year warranty.
Ideal for stand alone force applications or as the load defining component of a much larger system.
- Shockless dial indicator for installations involving the sudden application or release of force. (Maximum pointer cannot be supplied with shockless dial indicator.)
- Maximum load pointer which remains at peak load until manually reset. (not available on Model X-PP)
- Zero position on dial may be factory positioned at 12, 3, 6, or 9 o’clock. Standard position is at 12 o’clock.
