Tension values can be read in grams, centinewtons (cN) or pounds. Resolution is adjustable
down to 0.1 gram, and full-scale accuracy is 1 percent or better for all calibrations that can be
selected in the menu. The TX-125 uses NIMH rechargeable batteries. It is CE-certified, complying
with heavy industrial immunity standards. Features include automatic shut-off, password-protected
calibration values, speed and length measuring, user-adjustable display update and back-lit LCD.
