Physical Therapy & Strength Testing Kit RDS-1000

Measuring Range 0 - 1000 N

Electronic force gauge for determination of muscle strength, useable for numerous applications in rehabilitation and physical therapy
Force measuring device with RS 232, Digimatic and analog interface

Low cost standard model for compression/tension force

Special Features

  • 2 operation modes:
    real time - display the actual tension or compression force
    peak force - to measure the peak force during a test
  • Force measuring device with high sampling rate of 1000 times/sec to measure the peak force during a test switchable to 30 times/sec for applications with slow-changing forces or for damping forces, beeing influenced by vibrations.
  • Display update time 10 mal/sec
  • Output signal:
    - RS 232 C for connecting to a PC
    - analog ±1V DC
    - Mitutoyo Digimatic e. g. for connecting to a printer
  • Force gauge with user switchable units: N, gf (kgf) und ozf (lbf)
  • Programmable high/low set-points for go/no-go testing:
    Display: underrun (-)  -  good (O)  -  exceeding (+)
