X-PP Force gauges calibrated in push-pull are available in four capacities in pounds ranging from 50 lb up to and including 2,500-0-2,500 lb and three metric capacities from 50 to 1,000 kg. Accuracy is ±2% of maximum dial reading (based upon total capacity of both compression and tension scales).
Model X-PP gauges in capacities up to and including 500 lb or 250 kg are supplied with a set of self-aligning spherical rod-end connectors for tension loading. Force is applied to connectors through a hardened steel pin which must be slip fit in connector holes.
2,500 lb and 1,000 kg capacity gauges are equipped with two shackle adapters, shackles and pins. Shackles must be removed when compression load is involved. Force is then applied against shackle pins in a suitable test setup.
All push-pull gauges are supplied with a compression-loading spherical ball fitting for compression loading.
