Please keep the test condition (test speed, direction, temperature and humidity) consistent as possible.
Please make sure to minimize the differences in measurement between operators.
Please make sure that a gauge or attachments are fixed well.

Test results inevitably vary between operators when they use a force gauge by hand. To improve the measurement repeatability, combine a force gauge with a test stand, which offers consistent test direction and speed.

Calibration is a process to verify whether a force/torque gauge maintains good accuracy or not. Force/torque gauges are necessary to be calibrated periodically just like a watch maintenance. IMADA and some of our distributors offer calibration service.

No. It is NOT broken. NG light indicates that measured value is lower or higher than set points. (-NG: lower than the low set point, +NG: higher than the high set point).
Regarding how to set set points, please see the user guide video in each product web page.
Or you can also refer to the instruction manual.

It is likely that a sensor is broken (overloaded). If so, it is necessary to replace the sensor.

Please make sure that its power cable is connected well to outlet.
Please make sure that its fuse is not cut off.

Please make sure that the emergency button is off. (You can turn the button in a clockwise direction to switch it off.)
Please make sure that the test speed is not the lowest. (It is hard to see if it moves or not if the speed is low.)
Pleases make sure that two limit knobs are away enough since the force gauge moves up/down between the knobs. The black limit knobs are at the side of the stand.

In physics, force is a quantitative description of an interaction that causes a change in an object’s motion. Force is a vector quantity, with both direction and magnitude. It is defined as Mass x Acceleration = Force.

Load cells (force sensors) is a type of transducer. It converts a force/torque into an electrical signal that can be measured and standardized. It can show the measurement value by connecting with a amplifier/indicator.
We offer various of load cells (force sensors) to meet your testing requirements.

The capacity is the max. force/torque the measurement instrument can measure. As the measurement instruments will be break down due to overload (apply force/torque more than the capacity), please select capacity higher than the max force/torque you want to measure.

[f.s.] means full scale. For example, the tolerance of 50N (full scale) force gauge is [50N × ±0.2% = ±0.1N]. So if the displayed value is 30N, the tolerance is [30N ±0.1N = 29.9N~30.1N].

IMADA products are covered by a one year warranty for materials and workmanship under normal authorized use consistent with the instruction manual provided by IMADA.

The user guide videos shows how to use the products. Please go to each product web page to see the details.

We recommend you select product range (capacity) higher than the max expected force/torque to be loaded.
Please select capacity as 200% of your max expected force to be loaded for the rapid force change test such as break test.
Please select capacity as 150% of your max expected force to be loaded for the stable test.
Please select capacity as higher than the above cases for integration into equipment.

Mechanical force gauge is not suitable for test of rapid force change in short time test or in continuous vibration environment.

We have various kinds of attachments to meet different force measurement needs.
