VGMH series

Using this hand-held meter, you can readily check the values of load cells or pressure sensors installed on the shop floor. This is helpful for pressure/load measurement in the field where signals can be checked only in distant locations or if you need to check one device after another. In a compact body that fits in one hand, it has advanced features such as color bar meter and graph overlay. Besides, VGMH Data Viewer can be downloaded free of charge. This data management software allows you to easily prepare various highly functional reports of distribution or transition of measurement data by connection with PC.

Data Management SoftwareVGMH Data Viewer

Measurement data can be saved in CSV (Excel) format on PC or arranged in a list to show whether they fall within the predetermined upper and lower limits.
Also, values involving time-series change can be plotted in graphs with ease.
