Force gauges calibrated in push-pull are available in four capacities in pounds ranging from 50-0-50 lb up to and including 2,500-0-2,500 lb and three metric capacities from 50-0-50 to 1,000-0-1,000 kg. Accuracy is ±2% of maximum dial reading (based upon total capacity of both compression and tension scales).
Model X-PP gauges in capacities up to and including 500-0-500 lb or 250-0-250 kg are supplied with a set of self-aligning spherical rod-end connectors for tension loading. Force is applied to connectors through a hardened steel pin which must be slip fit in connector holes.
2,500-0-2,500 lb and 1,000-0-1,000 kg capacity gauges are equipped with two shackle adapters, shackles and pins. Shackles must be removed when compression load is involved. Force is then applied against shackle pins in a suitable test setup.
All push-pull gauges are supplied with a compression-loading spherical ball fitting for compression loading.
