Vector Force Gauge

Tilt Sensor Improves Test Accuracy

Standard Features

  • Tilt Sensor: Alerts user to deviation from the reference angle
  • Backlit LCD display with user-friendly menus
  • Ergonomic, durable, heavy-duty metal construction
  • 30,000/sec ultra-high sampling rate
  • 1,000 Data memory; automatically calculates Max, Min, Avg statistics
  • USB and RS-232C output
  • Selectable real time or peak mode operation
  • Setting security lock prevents accidental changes
  • Overload capacity 200% F.S.; Display flashes at overload limit
  • Runs on internal Ni-MH batteries (user replaceable) or AC adapter; Charges with USB port or portable charger

Tilt Sensor Helps users performing handheld measurements to push or pull at a consistent angle, improving measurement accuracy. The tilt alarm has three degrees of sensitivity 4°, 8° or 18° from the reference angle.

Force Logger (optional)
Available to users who need to collect peak data. Please inquire.
SW-1X Data Acquisition Software (optional)
Capture and analyze real-time data from any Imada gauge with a USB or RS-232 port directly into any Windows program. Log measurements and generate a profile graph plus statistical information. Control gauge functions from your computer.
DB-1X Data Input Button (optional)
DB-1X is a compact, one channel interface that enables users to send measurement data to a PC running SW-1X, Imada data acquisition software or other software. The data input button ‘zeros’ the gauge after sending data to the PC eliminating the need to reset manually.
