PS Mechanical Force gauges are the highest accuracy gauges available, making them ideal for precision tension and compression measurements in laboratory environments. Ergonomic design makes it ideal for hand held use, or the force gauge can be mounted to a test stand. The Zero-Tare ring allows you to zero the gauge to compensate for measuring attachments and changes in measuring position. The real time/peak hold selector switch allows users to easily switch between Real-Time Mode and Peak Mode. The PS force gauge is an analog force gauge and does not require charging, it is available for use at any time. Many ranges are available to cover all of your measurement needs (also available in Newtons).
