Force Gauge RDSV-1000N

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 USB and RS-232 interface

Low cost standard model for compression/tension force

CE mark

Special Features

3 operation modes:
real time – display the actual tension or compression force
peak force – to measure the peak force during a test
continuity peak mode – to measure the peak force for each single measurement

Force gauge RDSV-1000N with high sampling rate of 1000 times/sec to measure the peak force

Display update 8 times/sec

Storage of 1000 values, which can be recalled:
– on the display
– data transfer to a PC

Output signal:
– RS-232

Force gauge RDSV-1000 with user switchable units: N, gf (kgf) and ozf (lbf)

Programmable high/low set-points for go/no-go testing:
Display: good (OK), underrun/exceeding (OK is not displayed)

»Zero Set« to zero the gauge in all operating positions. Alarm signal, if the actual position differs to much from the calibration position

Mechanical stopper to prevent sensor-breakdown

With the optional software Force Logger Plus up to 4 sensors can be connected simultaneously for data processing to a PC

Manufacturers calibration report is included

Display can be reversed for inverted use; e. g. on vertical test stand
