Meter PCE-FM 1000
Force meter for measuring traction and compression up to 100 kg / 981 N,
with dynamometric cell and RS-232 interface
The PCE-FM1000 force meter is controlled by a microprocessor which can quickly and accurately read traction and compression. The display of the force meter is easy to read thanks to its large clear digits, thus avoiding errors when taking traction or compression readings. The force meter has a dynamometric casing with a 2 m cable to connect the meter to the casing.
The dynamometric cell can be attached using clasps which come with the device. The clasps can be unscrewed and removed from both sides of the dynamometric cell in such a way that the cell can also be fastened to other elements such as a test position. The force meter is powered by batteries or by mains adaptor (300 mA power source is available).
The force meter also has an RS-232 port allowing to connect it to a computer. With optional software and RS-232 cable, data can be transferred to a computer for being evaluated later. The force meter transfers data at a rate of 4 readings per second. If data is saved simultaneously to a computer, this should be done through the Windows hyperterminal as a data logger. The data transfer rate to the computer is the same. Here you can see the optional software package. For more information about the dynamometric cell, go to LTS-20 test position. The test position is ideal for measuring traction and compression in quality control and laboratory experiments.

Optional software, in conjunction with RS-232 cable, allows to transfer data to a computer. The force meter transfers data at a rate of 4 readings per second. If data is saved simultaneously to a computer, this should be done through the Windows hyperterminal as a data logger. The data transfer rate to the computer is the same.
The force meter can be combined with any of the three test positions we have available. Two test positions are equipped with a crank and the other one has a motor. The effective use of the test position is in daily testing of materials in a laboratory to maintain the same conditions, eliminating the possibility of human error.
