Capacity x Resolution

Capacity:
This value represents the maximum measurable load. All available capacities are listed for each available unit of measurement. All instruments measure from 0 to the indicated capacity.

Resolution:
This value represents the smallest measurable increment. For Plug & TestTM sensors, the resolution depends on which indicator is used. Refer to the Capacity x Resolution tables on the particular sensor’s webpage or data sheet.

Example – M5-50 force gauge:
Pound-force Capacity x Resolution for the M5-50 force gauge is: 50 x 0.01 lbF
This means that the gauge measures from 0 to 50 lbF, with increment size of 0.01 lbF, i.e., 0, 0.01, 0.02, 0.03…50.00.
