The second type is a digital gage. It is a special device, similar in functions to the previously described gauge. It’s usually a small portable instrument that is made up of a special load cell, additional electronic hardware, specialized calculating software and a monitor to present the result of the test. A load cell is a specialized electronic gear. It quantifies the strain applied to it and converts it into an electric signal. The greater the force that is being applied to it the stronger the electric signal emitted by this gear. The signal is then received by the electronic equipment installed in the gage and calculated and interpreted into force units that are shown on the gadget display.

Force gauges may be applied in various fields, like weighing heavy loads, testing of object resistance and integrity, spring and wire tests, weapon trigger tests and many more.
