The VFG is Mecmesin’s most powerful digital force gauge, packed full with innovative features and an intuitive touchscreen interface making it easy to navigate for all users.

Vector OS software is at the heart of the VFG enabling operators to configure the gauge to their requirements, analyse test results quickly in the field, and customise the touchscreen interface.

Available in 10 models with capacities ranging from 2.5 to 2500 N (0.5 to 550 lbf), the VFG caters for a diverse range of industrial applications.

All models are highly accurate to ±0.1% of full-scale with readings displayed in all common measurement units; N, kN, mN, gf, kgf, lbf and ozf.

Whilst most regularly used for push and pull tests using the gauge’s internal loadcell, the VFG also acts as a universal display for a selection of external ‘smart’ force and torque transducers. This means you can expand a VFG by connecting additional sensors to a Smart Adapter to perform tests of all capacities for tension, compression and torsion – all with one gauge.

The VFG offers enhanced test features and data analysis capabilities:

  • Configurable colour display – choose from a single peak value for simplicity or show the live readings & peaks in both tension and compression
  • Max load, 1st Peak and Average load – register the key values you wish to see from the test
  • Graphing mode – generate a live curve on the display to help identify critical events during the test
  • Fast internal sampling at 5MHz enables a data-acquisition rate of 2,000 times per second. This ensures sudden break-force readings are captured accurately
  • Visual pass/fail alarms – alert operators immediately when testing
  • Overload warning – minimise the risk of accidental damage to the loadcell
  • Statistical summary – store readings to a built-in memory for statistical analysis within the gauge
  • Expandable external memory – save all the raw data-points on a 32GB micro-SDHC card so you can test rapidly now and download test data later
  • Output data directly to a PC or printer for further analysis
  • Mount the gauge to test stands and connect to external loadcells & torque sensors – outstanding versatility makes it ideal for hundreds of different applications

The 5″ colour touchscreen features a highly intuitive interface to simplify operation for all users. Swipe to access configuration menus and set-up advanced tests by selecting from the icon-driven functions list. Configure the display to include only the options you wish to see. Pinch-and-zoom to expand the live graph.

The VFG is constructed from rugged aluminium and shaped to fit the hand making it small enough to be used as a hand-held device. It is easily attachable to a motorised stand, thereby making it an affordable first step to more controlled tension and compression testing where optimum repeatability is required. Alternatively, this powerful digital force gauge can also be integrated as a key component into your own custom test rigs.

It is powered by a fast-charge lithium-Ion battery and is supplied in a robust carry case with a standard accessory kit plus a USB-C charging cable and USB-C to USB-A adapter. A removable, rubber bumper is pre-fitted to protect against accidental damage if the gauge is dropped.

A calibration certificate traceable to national standards is included at no extra charge – ensuring full compliance during external audits.

It is the ideal choice for tension and compression tests just about anywhere, making it the solution of choice for factory or outdoor use.
