Model DFS - Digital Force Gauge

The Advanced Chatillon® DFS Digital Force Gauge combines the basic versatility of its companion DFE Force Gauge with added firmware for use as the primary control of Chatillon motorized test stands. Mounted on the Chatillon TCM orTCD, the DFS provides force set points, pass-fail limits, break detection, contact closure force, statistical calculations, force averaging, load comparison as well as instantaneous and peak detection.

The DFS features 0.1% accuracy to 500 lbf / 250 kgf / 2500 N. The dot-matrix LCD features large 0.5" numerals, 7 information text lines and a bar graph. Five force units are selectable: lbf, ozf, kgf, gf and N.

All DFS Digital Force Gauges provide RS232, analog 2Vdc and Mitutoyo outputs and include the required computer interface cable.

Chatillon Nexygen Gauge Software provides graphing force versus time and logging tabular for reports with Excel, Word, Access, Powerpoint and Outlook..
