How To Measure LBS in a Hydraulic System

There are many who use one of our digital pressures gauges to measure pounds of force in a hydraulic system. This is done by converting PSI to LBS in the custom multiplier menu on the gauge. Once this is done, the pre-existing load in the hydraulics must be cancelled out before taking the critical measurement. Watch the video below to learn more:

From the Lab: User Interface on Digital Pressure Gauges

Digital pressure gauges offer a user interface for using it your wayPressure gauges come in two basic types, digital and analog (a.k.a. dial). When we contemplate the advantages of each, and how they serve our customers, we just have to go with digital pressure gauges.

Effectively, the only advantage of a dial pressure gauge is cost. They are less accurate, harder to read, and worst of all, they have virtually no user interface.
