PCE-LFG 5 Force Test Instrument
for tension and compression force measurement / with 6 different measuring tips / RS-232 and USB interface / software for data analysis

The PCE-LFG 5 Force Test Instrument is suitable for tensile and compression tests up to a range of 5 N. The Force Test Instrument has a resolution of 0.0005 N, which allows precise measurements. This instrument is equipped with a large, easy to read display on which the measured values can still be read even at an angle. With the integrated USB interface, up to 1000 measured values can be transferred from the internal memory to a computer. Subsequent analysis can then be performed using the provided software. In addition, the Force Test Instrument has an RS-232 interface through which the device can be connected to a mini printer. Measured data can thus be printed directly. The PCE-LFG 5 Force Test Instrument is characterized by its ease of use and its sensible menu. The Force Test Instrument is equipped with robust housing as well, allowing it to be used in industrial environments. Consistent accuracy is guaranteed by the 5-point calibration. The Force Test Instrument is powered by the supplied battery. This instrument, due to its features, is used in quality control in the production area for incoming and outgoing goods, and the development of new components or for testing safety-relevant components.
