Model BGI Universal Force/Torque Gauge - Discontinued/Replaced by M5i
The innovative BGI Universal Force / Torque Gauge is the ultimate in force and torque measurement flexibility. With all the features of the Series BG, coupled with compatibility with a wide selection of interchangeable force and torque sensors, the BGI is a versatile solution for many force and torque testing applications. All sensors are fully interchangeable and do not require additional configuration or calibration.
|Accuracy:||±0.1% of full scale ±1 digit + sensor|
|Power:||AC or rechargeable battery with Intelligent Power Management System (IPM), a 3-step
system that warns the user via a “LO BAT” indicator and then powers off the gauge.
|Battery life:||8-10 hours of continuous use|
|Selectable units of measurement:||lb, kg, g, N, ozin, lbFin, kgFmm, kgFm, Ncm, Nm (depending on sensor)|
Fully configurable up to 9600 baud. Includes Gauge Control Language (GCL) for full computer control of all functions.
Serial BCD suitable for all Mitutoyo SPC-compatible devices
±1 VCD, ±0.25% of full scale at capacity. + CW, - for CCW.
Three open collector outputs and one input (utilizing Mitutoyo lines)
Three open collector lines (utilizing Mitutoyo lines)
|Configurable settings:||Analog filters, digital filters, RS-232, outputs selection (other than RS-232), automatic output (RS-232), automatic shutoff, initial (default), averaging mode, calibration|
|Weight (gauge only):||0.9 lb [0.4 kg]|
|Environmental requirements:||40° F - 100°F [5°C - 45°C],|
|Thermal effects:||Zero: 0.03% of full scale/°C, Span: 0.01% of full scale/°C for all remote sensors|
|Warranty:||3 years (see individual statement for further details)|
|Interchangeable remote force & torque sensors|
|Data outputs||RS-232, Mitutoyo (Digimatic), and analog
outputs. Automatic timed output (RS-232) included.
|Set points||Programmable high and low force set
points for triggering external devices (ex.
motorized test stand, alarm, etc).
|Data averaging||Calculates average force over a specified
|External trigger||Useful for contact or switch activation
force testing and data capture
|Output cables||Various data output cables are available|
|Hi / lo limits indicator 11-1022||Set limit conditions for a test - the indicator will display red lights for high and low limits, and a green light to indicate passing.|
|Overload protection module 11-1042||Protects the remote sensor against overloads during motorized tests, adjustable from 10 - 150% of the sensor’s full capacity. For use with motorized test stands.|
|Set point cable 09-1090||Stops test stand motion at programmable high and low set points for tension and compression or CW and CCW. For use with motorized test stands.|
|Test stand mounting kit AC1004||Allows the BGI to be mounted to TS-Series force or torque test stand|
|Tabletop stand AC1008||Includes gauge mounting screws, and holes for mounting to a workbench. Display angle can be adjusted.|
