DFX II Series Digital Force Gauge

The CHATILLON® DFX Series is an economical digital force gauge ideal for applications where users are interested in basic peak force measurement. The DFX is available in four capacities (10 lbf, 50 lbf, 100 lbf, 200 lbf) and features an integral loadcell with a measurement accuracy of better than 0.3% full scale. The DFX Series operates using a rechargeable NiMH battery pack and can operate using the supplied universal charger as well. The battery eliminator is supplied with a US, UK and EURO style plug. Under battery operation, the DFX Series will operate for 70 to 100 hours of continuous use. A large, easy-to-read, high resolution dot matrix LCD display supports a variety of standard gauge functions including normal and peak readings. Loads are displayed in ozf, gf, lbf, kgf and N units. The display language may be setup to indicate in English, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese and Chinese. The DFX Series’ calibration procedure is included in the gauge’s setup. The DFX Series force gauges come with a carrying case, universal battery charger, flat and hook adapters. The DFX Series is supplied with an optional Certificate of Calibration with NIST data.
