Press
. The capacity of the gauge is displayed and the gauge will automatically enter into the
measuring mode. Press and hold
for at least four (4) seconds each time you wish to select
between pounds (ounces), kilograms (grams) and Newtons.
Hand tighten (no tool!) selected attachment to the measuring shaft.
When the gauge is turned on, it will go directly to its real time measuring mode. Press
to measure peak forces.“Peak icon” on the display indicates peak measuring mode, whereas the peak reading will not change until a higher value is measured.To delete the last peak reading, press
.To
end peak reading mode and go to real time measuring mode, press
again.

If necessary, press
to tare the weight of the attachment and shaft orientation. Pressing
also clear the peak reading.
Make sure to apply tension and compression (-) forces to the gauge in line
with the measuring shaft. DO NOT attempt to measure forces at an angle to
the measuring shaft - damage to load cell and/or shaft may result.

WARNING!! REGARDLESS of whether the unit is ON or OFF, do not exceed the capacity of the
gauge.At 105% of the rated capacity, the display will flash. Never exceed 200% of the rated capacity,
or the load cell will be damaged.
When mounting, use M4 mounting screws with a maximum insertion depth of 5 mm into the gauge.
Measure in line tension and compression forces only. Do not attempt to measure forces at an angle
to the measuring shaft - damage to load cell and/or shaft may result.
Hand tighten attachments only. Do not use tools.
Make sure this gauge and all peripherals are powered down before attaching any cables.
Do not remove the warranty seal or disassemble the gauge. Disassembly voids warranty.
RECHARGING NI-CAD BATTERY

To maximize the life of the battery, power will automatically shut off after 10 minutes of non-use.
This automatic shut off feature can be bypassed and the gauge may be used continuously when the
AC adapter/charger is used.
“BATT” icon will flash when gauge needs to be recharged.To maximize battery
life, do not recharge until “BATT” icon flashes.With proper recharging, battery can
be recharged 500 times.
Push
to turn off power.
IMPORTANT! Use the provided adapter/charger exclusively and plug into the correct AC output. It
takes 8 hours to charge fully.
When the gauge is turned off, make sure the AC adapter/charger is disconnected to avoid overcharging.

Attach any of the supplied standard attachments or optional
special attachments to
measure tension or
compression forces.

After 10 minutes, unit
will power down if no
key is pressed.
