The PCE force gauge is the benchmark of quality and performance. PCE force gauge is for laboratories, for measurement and knowledge deficits on the job or in the field, and for educational and research purposes. There are several available in the PCE shop.
gauge is accurate to ±0.3% of the load and have a range of 20% of the surface weight. It provides measurements in grams (g) and Newton (N).
The force gauge with a surface weight of 5g to 1000g has a clamp as a load support, and those of 2.5g to 50kg have a hook, and most devices up to and beyond 100kg have a carabineer. Measuring with a compression kit can convert a traction meter, with a simple change, into a compression meter.
At PCE we offer a mechanical force gauge, and we also offer digital force gauge. Digital force gauge is available with an RS-232 interface and require an optional software pack to allow for data to be transferred to a computer for analysis.

Why to measure force? Very often it is interesting for a manufacturer to know, when a product breaks or will be loosened or destroyed. So he can optimize the products conditions and the
manuacturing processes to a minimum cost level at the maximum product performance. To find out this "break-even-point" very often a force gauge is used. When does a product become loose or
breaks? What amount of Newtons is necessary to open doors (push the handle down), to destroy metal pipes or wires (tension forces), ... How are forces effecting car seats being tested?
How are tactile forces (pressure forces) measured?
Here you can see a Force unit converter. It enables you to transfer the data (unit) you have got by the force gauge into units like kgf, pound, N,... In addition you find some more information about the force gauge as: Videos, Safety instructions and safe use of the instruments themselves.
Senors, Grips, Handles, Software, Calibration Cerfifcates (ISO, DKD, NIST) and Verification Certificates (Class MI, MII, MIII) concerning the test instruments are ever available to purchase below each product description (details). Sensors (for use in stand alone applications or for special industrial use) with measurement ranges from 1N to 500 kN, fixtures, junction boxes, converters, cables, test stands, … are to be seen by following
