Screw Joint for Tension and Compression
With this model the forces are fed via the thread bolts for tensile and compressive forces at the same bolts. Thus, this type is ideal for alternating loads. When the analogue device is unloaded, the dial indicates 300 graduation marks. If the forces are tensile, the indication will rise; if the forces are compressive, the value will decrease. Therefore, the indication for maximum load works with tensile forces only.
The digital indicator starts with 0.0 N or 0.000 kN. Tension will be indicated with a “+“ symbol, compression has a “–“. In case of digital product order please mark the Dynamometer name with a „dig” behind the standard type name, like ZD-2dig.
