The Jonard GPP-5 brass push-pull force gauge measures tensile (pull) or compression (push) forces. This analog gauge (also known as a mechanical gauge) measures present force in ounces (oz.) or grams (g), and the gauge's scale is graduated in increments of 1 oz. or 50 g. The gauge has a full-scale measurement accuracy of + or - 1 oz. or 50 g and a maximum capacity of 16 oz. or 500 g. The tube-shaped gauge can take measurements in tight spaces, and each of the gauge's springs is calibrated with dead weights by the manufacturer for accuracy. The gauge is made from brass with a satin chrome finish. The Jonard GPP-5 push-pull gauge measures 15 inches by 0.5 inch (H x D, where H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point, and D is diameter, the distance around the circumference of the tool).
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.
