  • RS-232C, Digimatic and Analog outputs
  • Runs on internal Ni-MH batteries or AC adapter
  • Ergonomic design with non-slip rubber grip, heavy duty metal construction
  • Capacity up to 220 lbf (push/pull)
  • Overload capacity 200% of F.S.
  • Real time and peak mode (selectable)
  • Overload indicator and output signal
  • Low battery indicator
  • External switch display hold and clear
  • Full set of accessories, AC adapter/charger and carrying case. Z2 gauges are sold in kit form.
  • For higher forces above 220 lbs see ZPH gauges
The Z2 are high performance, digital force gauges which offer programmable high/low setpoints for go/no-go testing. ORANGE lights up for measurements less than Low setpoint, GREEN for between High and Low setpoint, and RED for over High setpoint.

Store up to 1,000 values in memory, which can be transmitted using RS-232C port. Use the real time mode to display load transients, or the peak mode to capture the peak force achieved during a test. Selectable measuring units of lbf, kgf, or Newtons.

All Z2 gauges are sold in kits which include the gauge, hard plastic carrying case, AC adapter/charger, and attachments (flat head, conical, chisel, notched, small hook, large hook, Y-hook, and extension rod). Built-in Ni-MH rechargeable batteries. An optional handle to facilitate the measurement of heavy loads is also available.

ZP Series High Performance Digital Force Gauge with USB Output
  • 1,000 data/second True USB output, not just the peak
  • Record and zoom in to analyze data with ZP Recorder software
  • RS-232C, Digimatic and Analog outputs
  • Programmable high/low setpoints with color-coded LED indicators and output signal for go/no go testing
  • 1,000 Data memory for computer download
  • External switch display hold and clear
  • lbf, kgf, and N units are selectable
  • Runs on internal Ni-MH batteries or AC adapter
  • Ergonomic design with non-slip rubber grip, heavy duty metal construction
  • Capacity up to 220 lbf (up to 1,100 lbf with ZPH Series)
  • Overload capacity 200% of F.S.
  • Real time and peak mode (selectable)
  • Overload indicator and output signal
  • Low battery indicator
  • Reversible display
  • ZP kits include a full set of accessories, AC adapter/ charger, carrying case, ZP Logger software, USB driver and USB cable

USB Output - High Performance ZP digital force gauges are capable of processing 1,000 data/second, so force profiles can be analyzed for much more than just the peak. Collect peak data on your computer with the USB cable and ZP Logger (included) or 1,000 data/second with ZP Recorder (optional). 

Main Features ZP gauges have programmable high/low setpoints for go/no-go testing. Orange lights up for measurements less than Low setpoint, green for between High and Low setpoint, and red for over High setpoint.

Use real time mode to display load transients, or peak mode to capture the peak force achieved during a test. Selectable lbf, kgf, or Newtons measuring units. Store up to 1,000 values in memory and download to your computer using USB or RS-232C port.


ZP Kit

ZP gauges are sold in kits which include a hard plastic carrying case, AC adapter/charger, attachments (flat head, conical, chisel, notched, small hook, large hook, Y-hook, and extension rod), Ni-MH rechargeable batteries, USB Driver and ZP Logger, and USB cable. An optional handle to facilitate the measurement of heavy loads is also available.

ZP Logger Software (included) ZP Logger is a USB software utility that logs force values by pressing the Send button on the gauge, from either Peak or Real time modes. ZP Logger also downloads all values previously stored in gauge memory and saves in CSV format.
ZP Recorder Software (optional) ZP Recorder is force data analysis software designed to interface with Imada ZP Series (USB) force gauges. ZP Recorder records and processes 1,000 data per second (not just the peak) and generates a graph with statistics. Zoom into any part of the graph to see individual data points at intervals of 1mS. Mouse over data points to display their force value. Further analysis can be done on the entire range or by selecting part of the graph to detect the first peak or generate statistics within that time interval. Compare and align multiple graphs. Save graphs or export data to CSV format.
