Universal force gauges

Universal force gauges

We design and produce digital force gauges for the most varied applications, including medical engineering and industrial production, and in agriculture or the monitoring of plant, cable or chain tensions, contact pressures, etc. Force sensors are combined with portable hand or large displays in this context. The type of signal output, data transfer and maximum data logging is selected to suit customer requirements.


Force gauge ZW 5.0

Force gauge ZW 5.0

This force gauge is available in load ranges from 500 to 5,000N. It consists of two HKM components: a shear force load cell as a transducer and a hand terminal connected by a cable. The compact size of the transducer makes the ZW 5.0 ideally suitable for use in conditions where space is restricted. The transducer can be adapted with spherical rod ends and eyebolts. Other forms of force introduction are possible directly via the two mounting threads on the shear force load cell. Simple control is possible using the hand terminal on which measured values are displayed.

Force gauges ZW 6.0, 7.0, 8.0

Force gauges

These force gauges for use in load ranges from 10 to 100kN consist of two HKM components: a shear force load cell as a transducer and a hand terminal connected by a cable. The transducers are particularly suitable for measuring major forces. The transducer can be adapted with spherical rod ends and eyebolts. Other forms of force introduction are possible directly via the two mounting threads on the shear force load cell. Simple control is possible using the hand terminal on which measured values are displayed.

  • Calibratable
  • For tensile and compression applications
  • Nominal load range: 10, 20, 50, 80 and 100kN
  • Accuracy ± 0.25% from ultimate value
  • Maximum and minimal value memory
  • Tare
  • Battery operation
  • No signal output
  • Weighing in industrial and agricultural applications

Force gauge with compression load cell DD on HT 6.0

Compression load cell

This force gauge is the ideal instrument for the exclusive measurement of compression forces or contact pressures. It consists of two HKM components: a compression load cell as a transducer and a hand terminal connected by a cable. The load cells are distinguished by a high nominal load range. Simple control is possible using the hand terminal on which measured values are displayed.

  • Calibratable
  • For compression applications
  • Nominal load range: 500N to 200kN
  • Accuracy governed by compression cell
  • Maximum and minimal value memory
  • Tare
  • Battery operation
  • No signal output
  • Weighing in industrial applications
