Housed in a plastic case and powered by disposable AA batteries, the CFG is available in either 50N, 200N or 500N capacity. Measurements can be made in N, lbf, ozf, kgf, and gf with a resolution of 1:1000 or better. The CFG has an accuracy of ±0.5% of full scale with peak force data being captured at 10Hz in both tension and compression. The CFG provides a simple digital alternative to traditional analogue spring balances and is ideal for users with a limited budget, who only measure on an occasional basis for non-critical applications.
