LG Series
Low Capacity Mechanical Force Gauge

The CHATILLON® LG Series mechanical force gauge is ideal for a wide range of force testing applications. Based on the popular DPP Series force gauge, the LG Series features a larger, 2.25-inch dial for improved resolution and readability, peak hold button, ergonomic shape and improved accuracy of ±0.5% of full scale. The LG gauge is an excellent, economical solution for tensile or compression testing.

The durable, plastic housing fits naturally in the hand for a comfortable and firm grip even at maximum loads. Easy to read concentric dial measures clockwise only. Dial rotates 360-degrees for taring. A peak hold button captures peak readings and can be easily and quickly returned to zero. A mechanical overload feature protects the gauge from damage. Available in lbf, kgf or N units of measure.

LG Series gauges come complete with protective carrying case and a set of stainless steel attachments. Calibration data is provided with a complete Calibration Certificate.
