The Basic Force Gauge (BFG) is the core digital instrument for tension and compression measurement from Mecmesin, there are 6 models covering load ranges from 10 N to 2500 N.
A portable, affordable and easy-to-use force measurement solution with ‘live’ load display and ultimate peak hold capture.
Basic Force Gauge (BFG)
The Basic Force Gauge (BFG) features a clear backlit LCD digital display and offers significant performance benefits over mechanical gauges.
It is particularly suited to force testing applications where quick, clear and accurate load readings are required.
The BFG range is manufactured in a rugged aluminium housing and comprises 6 models with load capacities from 10 to 2500 N. Accurate to ± 0.25% of full-scale, load readings in both tension and compression can be displayed in a variety of measurement units such as; N, kN, mN, gf, kgf, lbf and ozf.
The BFG can be used as a portable, hand-held device, ideal for measuring load on either the factory floor or outdoors. However, for more complex applications where greater precision and repeatability are required, it can be mounted to any of our manual or motorised test stands.
Alternatively, you may choose to integrate this handy force gauge into your own custom-designed test rig. Fitting ergonomically in the hand, the BFG digital force gauge clearly displays live loads for continuous monitoring and has a peak-hold function for capturing maximum readings in both tension and compression.
A simple keypad layout allows easy use, even for unskilled operators. All models feature an overload warning function to minimise the risk of accidental damage to the instrument.
The recording of test results is simple. The BFG comes equipped with RS232, digimatic and analogue outputs so you can transmit to a PC or printer at the press of a button. Compatible with Mecmesins VectorPro-Lite data-acquisition software, data from the BFG can be presented graphically, results easily calculated and test reports generated as PDF™© or in Excel™©.
Supplied in a robust carry case with a mains adapter, a set of rechargeable batteries, and a set of attachments. The BFG comes fully calibrated with a certificate traceable to national standards, ensuring full compliance during external audits.
