DFE Series Digital Force Gauge

The CHATILLON® DFE Series marks a new era in digital force measurement. This compact, easy-to-use force gauge is designed for economy applications without compromising functionality. Ideal for handheld or test stand applications. The DFE is available with capacities from 2 lbf (10 N) to 500 lbf (2500 N). The DFE features an integral loadcell with a measurement accuracy of better than 0.25% full scale. A large, easy-to-read, high resolution dot matrix LCD display supports a variety of standard gauge functions including normal and peak readings, high/low limits, setpoints, pass/fail results, statistical results, loadcell actuation and direction. Loads are displayed in ozf, gf, lbf, kgf and N units. The display can be inverted and displayed results may be “hidden” from the operator. The DFE gauge may be specified with or without RS232 serial communication. All DFE Series force gauges come with a carrying case, battery adapter/charger, testing accessories and NIST Certificate of Calibration with data.
