Under the ergoFET brand, Hoggan Scientific offers two digital push pull force gauges that are durable easy to use, and accurate. The instruments can be used to meet most testing needs in industrial settings for ergonomic assessments, workplace job analysis and product testing and design. The ergoFET and ergoFET500 force gauges are two excellent tools for measuring and analyzing force loads to help improve production, quality, and efficiency.
The ever popular ergoFET force gauge is the more highly sought after device by ergonomists, due to its unique compact, ergonomic handheld design, that lends itself to be very portable and adaptable for use in a wide variety testing applications, where other types of force gauges would be ineffective. The ergoFET has easy to read LCD displays showing peak force and duration in seconds (time) of tests, a 300 pound force capacity, ability to store and recall 30 tests, and with wireless capability allows to use the device with available data collection software. The handheld design of the ergoFET device making testing easier, and allows to more closely simulate actual job tasks for one hand force measurements. The ergoFET design also incorporates the ability to perform one hand and some two hand push pull tests, with accessory stir up handle that screws into the gauge. The ergoFET kit includes test attachments to accommodate for most testing applications.
The ergoFET500 force gauge is companion to the ergoFET gauge. It also has an easy to read LCD display, and its lightweight durable aluminum housing offers a lighter feel than other force gauges with cast housings. It measures push/compression forces up to 200 pounds force, and pull/tension tests up to 500 pounds force, stores and recall 30 tests, and its wireless capability allows force gauge to be used with Hoggan data collection software. The kit comes with complete set of test attachments, and two aluminum handles. The two lightweight machined aluminum handles that screw into the device offer stability for testing and measuring heavier loads.
Another device that is quickly becoming popular component of an ergonomist’s toolkit, is the microFET handGRIP. The electronic digital dynamometer is used to test and screen for hand grip strength. It features a lightweight molded high impact plastic body construction, utilizes accurate load cell sensor technology in place of hydraulic fluid found in some other handgrip gauges, has easy to read digital LCD displays of peak force and time, and can save and recall tests. microFET handGRIP with wireless technology can be used with optional data collection or patient testing clinical software.
The Hoggan products are used major companies worldwide in the automotive, aerospace and defense, consumer products, food processing, warehousing industries, as well as universities.
