Series CG High Capacity Digital Force Gauges (Obsolete) See M5 Series

The rugged Series CG Digital Force Gauge is an advanced force measurement instrument for testing up to 1,000 lbF of compressive or tensile forces. The gauge includes all the features of Series BG gauges, including sophisticated measurement capabilities, data outputs, computer control capabilities, and configurable settings.


Data outputs RS-232, Mitutoyo (Digimatic), and analog outputs. Automatic timed output (RS-232) included.
Set points Programmable high and low force set points for triggering external devices (ex. motorized test stand, alarm, etc).
Data averaging Calculates average force over a specified time (programmable)
External trigger Useful for contact or switch activation force testing and data capture
Reversible housing Housing can be reversed for handheld or test stand use


Accuracy: ±0.2% of full scale ±1 digit
Sampling rate: 65 readings/s
Display rate: 2.5 updates/s in normal operation / 65 updates/s in peak mode
Power: AC or rechargeable battery with Intelligent Power Management System (IPM). IPM warns the user via a “LO BAT” indicator and then will power off the gauge
Battery life: 8-10 hours of continuous use
Selectable units of measurement: lbF, kg, N




    Set points

Output cables Various data output cables are available
Hi / lo limits indicator 11-1022 Set limit conditions for a test - the indicator will display red lights for high and low limits, and a green light to indicate passing.
Overload protection module 11-1042 Protects the force gauge against overloads during motorized tests, adjustable from 10 - 150% of gauge’s full capacity. For use with the ESM motorized test stand.
Set point cable 09-1090 Stops test stand travel at programmable high and low set points for tension and compression forces. For use with motorized test stands.
