Product Description

The Mitutoyo standard dial tension gauge measures the contact force of an instrument and a workpiece and of components such as electrical relays, micro-switches, valves, and precision springs. This analog gauge shows measurements in Newtons (N) and can display the present force measured in real time. It has a measurement accuracy of + or - 0.5 graduation. The fulcrum has an anti-friction bearing that helps improve measurement accuracy. The meter's body measures 1.85 x 2.17 x 0.75 inches (47 x 55 x 19 mm, H x W x D, where H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is the width, the horizontal distance from left to right; and D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back) and can be held in one hand during use.

Force gauges, also called push-pull gauges or tension gauges, measure the tensile (pull) or compression (push) force applied to an object. They are used to test the strength and functionality of a variety of machines, electronic components, cables, wires, and consumer products in scientific, medical, automotive, quality assurance, and manufacturing applications. A digital force gauge shows the amount of force in digits on the gauge's display. Response time varies among digital force gauges depending on the speed of the processor. An analog (or mechanical) force gauge shows measurements on a calibrated dial. Analog force gauges are not as precise as digital force gauges, but they provide instantaneous measurements and can be used in a wider range of environmental conditions than digital force gauges. Hooks, compression plates, levers, handles, test stands, and other accessories can be used with the gauge for taking measurements on objects with a range of shapes and sizes.

Mitutoyo manufactures precision measuring tools, metrology equipment, and related systems. The company, founded in Tokyo in 1934, formed Mitutoyo America Corporation in 1963 with headquarters in Aurora, IL.
