The Shimpo FGS-ACC accessory kit is for use with Shimpo FGS test stands. The kit contains screws, an Allen wrench, washers, a threaded rod, and a cable holder for mounting a force gauge to a compatible test stand.
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.
Shimpo Instruments manufactures force, torque, and speed evaluation instruments. The company, founded in 1974 and headquartered in Itasca, IL, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard 9001.
