Electronic dynamometers

Electronic force gauges are designed to measure the force tension or compression test.

ACRN offers several electronic force gauges such as the AFG, BFG or VFG with measurement capabilities up to 2500N.

However, if you want to perform tensile/compression measurements with very high suspended loads, we also have a high capacity digital force gauge for load measurements up to 20T.

What is an Electronic Dynamometer ?

An electronic dynamometer also called digital dynamometer is a portable or fixed measuring device used in industry, aeronautics, industrial mechanics, automotive and food processing.

Digital force gauges can handle loads up to 10 tons without their accuracy being “degraded” which makes them indispensable tools for measuring a force.

What is it for?

The force gauge is a measuring instrument used throughout industry, it is used to measure the tensile or compressive test force by converting a force or torque into an electrical signal.

Its primary units of measurement are the Newton and the book.

Which one to choose ?

In order to choose a dynamometer that corresponds to your needs, it is important to know the capacity you need to perform your tests, but also the different features you would like to have. But you also need to define the usage to determine if it is a measure of traction or compression. that you will need.

What is the difference with a mechanical dynamometer ?

The electronic dynamometer is actually the more advanced of the mechanical dynamometer., indeed they have the same utility but the electronic model is both more modern and lighter.

The digital dynamometer has a force sensor, a software, an electronic card and a display which is not the case of the mechanical dynamometer which works with a spring or needle system depending on the model chosen.

The advantages of electronics over mechanical dynamometers ?

The value obtained by the force on the hook is displayed directly on the screen.

As explained in the answer to the previous question, the mechanical dynamometer is lighter and more compact which makes it more convenient to carry due to its low weight.

The electronic dynamometer offers an accuracy of ± 0,3% while the mechanical model has a low accuracy of about 5%.
