Series EG Advanced Digital Force Gauges - Discontinued/Replaced bySeries 4

The Series EG is an ideal instrument for compression and tension applications requiring accuracy and flexibility up to 500 lbF. Features include selectable units of measurement, automatic peak memory, simple pushbutton calibration, programmable automatic shutoff, initial status of units and mode of operation, permanent configuration memory, and optional outputs (RS-232, Mitutoyo, and analog). Reversible aluminum housing allows for hand-held use or test stand mounting.
