Product information

Handy Digital Force Gauge


The HF series is used not only for load measurements but also for a variety of tests including switch test. Connector’s insertion/ withdrawal test and break-down test. In addition, low-cost centronics interface which enables printing of measured data and statistical data through portable printer is also available.

• High resolution
1/10000 resolution (1kgf, 10kgf, 100kgf type) which is not found in common hand held models.
• Memory function. Battery backup
Can memorize 512 unit testing data at most.
• Printing of inspection report
Inspection report can be printed in portable printer through Centronics Interface.
• Statistical processing
Automatic calculation and printing of standard deviation and process capability index.

• Insertion withdrawal measurement
Peak data under compression and peak data under tension can be done in one measurement.

• Mode setting
The HF series function not only act as a force gauge but is also designed to perform a variety of other measurements. In performing other measurements, mode setting enhances measurement efficiency.

• High functionality
Unit Change: gf, kgf, N ,lbf.
Measurement is possible during contact point hold (for switches normally open or normally close).
Digimatic output.
RS-232C (Cable is optional)
Analog output (2V F.S)
Auto memory with auto reset
comparator with upper and lower limit tolerance setting.
Peak hold with Break-Down detection.
continous operation by monitored charging function.
More than 8 hours of battery life.
Auto power OFF that is energy saving.
Overload alarm output.
