Usage/Specification Quote/Delivery Repair/Calibration


This digital force gauge has an external sensor.   Both ZTS/ZTA series are available.
For testing at a difficult place for reaching or mounting a regular-type force gauge.
The sensor is selectable. (See IMADA load cell)

[Mutual Features and Functions of ZTS/ZTA series]

For Accurate Force Measurement
The 2000Hz high speed sampling rate captures accurate force values of testing
(The accuracy and the measurable force type depend on the used sensor).

High Visible Display & Lamps
The display is adopting OEL. It enables to show force values, unit and others very clearly.
The display has 3 separated rows. They show Force and the necessary information at the same time
such as date, time, high/low setting points and No. of stored data.
The LED lamps above the force gauge help easy checking whether the displayed force is between setting points.

Useful Functions
ZT series equips a lot of useful functions for force measurement.
Peak hold function, Data sending function (up to 1000 points to the internal memory), Pass/Fail decision and more.
High-operability force measurements are possible.

Data Output
Many types of output signals are available such as USB, analog , RS232C and more.
Using including software ZT logger, ZT series is able to output the data stored in the internal memory to a PC.
Continuous test data output  is also possible at 10 data/ sec.
Using optional software Force Recorder (Light / Standard), draw a force- time graph at 2000 data/sec on PC.
It is ideal for detailed analyses.

[ZTA series Original Function]

Direct Data Output for a USB Flash Drive
Not only stored data but also continuous data can be output
for a USB flash drive at 100Hz, 50Hz or 1Hz. ( The sampling rate is selectable.)

Displacement I/O
Connecting a force test stand with a linear scale or a built-in linear scale DMK series,
force-displacement measurement is possible.*
* There is a Force-Displacement Measurement Unit FSA series
including necessary items of force- displacement measurement and analyses.

This force gauge is not able to be interchanged the connected sensor without an adjustment.

Sensor Separate Model Digital Force Gauge ZT series.
You can select the load cell from various types. ( See IMADA load cells )

How to Make the Force Gauge Model?

1. Select the force gauge model from ZTS series or ZTA series.
2. Select the using load cell (e.g.  LM-100N, SW1-500N etc.).
3. The force gauge model name becomes the combined name of the selected force gauge and the load cell
(e.g.  ZTS-LM-100N, ZTA-SW1-500N etc.).
