February 24, 2015


Model 4215 Smart Strain Gauge Indicator - Ideal for Jet Thrust Test Systems

Electro Standards Laboratories, Cranston, RI, manufactures Model 4215 Series calibration-quality Smart Strain Gauge Indicators in both a single channel unit, Model 4215A-104-1 or dual channel unit, Model 4215A-204-1.

 Calibration Quality Load Cell Electronics!

The Model 4215 load cell indicator is an intelligent microprocessor based instrument designed for the measurement and control of strain gage transducer based systems. Model 4215 load cell indicator combines force channels, encoder position channels, print capabilities, and RS232/RS485 serial communications into a versatile platform that can be customized to deliver the most powerful and affordable instrumentation in its class.

The Model 4215 strain gauge indicator is compatible with most tensile testers, load cells, extensometers, torque transducers, pressure sensors and position encoders. Whether upgrading an existing system or implementing a new one, the Model 4215 strain gage indicator delivers the accuracy, reliability, and repeatability needed to meet the most demanding applications.
