The Model LC digital force indicator is a highly portable force measurement device. With its 9 V battery supply and compact size the indicator can easily be carried to remote locations to perform force measurement calibrations. The unit can measure compression forces up to 50,000 lbs. The peak capture feature allows the highest force reading taken to be displayed with the push of a button. The remote location of the load sensor minimizes the chance of damage to the electronic body of the gauge. The stainless steel construction of the sensor and the indicator makes them often resistant to the occasional mishandling than can occur in the field. Optional handles are available for the load cell and gauge. Each unit has a membrane face with raised buttons and tactile feedback for setup and operation. The high, low, and clear buttons are easily accessible on this front membrane. Zero adjustment and zero offset/tare functions are standard on each unit. Calibration and setup parameters are stored on a memory chip to protect from loss even when power is interrupted. Unauthorized set ups and calibrations are also blocked with internal security. Various combinations of the front panel buttons can be de-activated.
