New force measuring instruments must have more functions and features, be smaller and offer more value for money. PENKO responds to this with a new product range, type 1020-FMD. The instruments are suitable for automatic as well non automatic applications. They are a perfect interface between load cells with an integrated controller to the system for data processing. The unique PENKO way of measuring high speed 1600 conversions/s, and high internal resolution, 24 bits, guarantees a fast and accurate data transfer and/or cut off. These characteristics allow application of the instruments for static and dynamic force measurement as well as for destructive material tests. These applications are supported with zero adjustment, track recording, hold/peakhold/valleyhold and overload protection. As a standard, all models are provided with USB to facilitate set-up and back-up functions. Additional models include RS232, RS485/422, Ethernet, CANBUS and Profibus. The range is completed with an analogous output, 0/4 – 20/24 mA. Easy and fast calibration is done digitally. The force is displayed by means of a bright 2,8” TFT screen with 13 mm high figures, and a colour bar. Choose from two enclosures, a compact panel model and stainless steel housing. The panel meter has a front of 150 x 76 mm and a depth of only 82 mm; the stainless steel enclosure size including the swivel bar is 180 x 145 x 153 (W x H x D). For easy selection a convenient brochure is available.
