Accredited ISO 17025 calibration certificate for these DFS2 Series DFS II Series Digital Force Gauges force tools is be available on request (for an extra charge). Why Calibrate?
The DFS II Series offers the best price performance of any digital force gauge available today, along with wireless data transfer and communication. This easy-to-use digital force gauge is designed for basic and complex applications, and is ideal for handheld or test stand applications.
Two methods of load averaging are standard with your DFS II. Load averaging is useful to determining load characteristics of long test periods or for samples with characteristically noisy load readings.
This method allows you to define a load threshold. The
gauge will begin taking readings once the load threshold has
been reached and will continue to take and average readings until the measured load falls below the threshold value.
The Time method allows you to establish your load averaging based on a load threshold and time duration. The load
threshold determines the start of the averaging, while the time duration defines the length of the test period. The gauge will begin taking readings when the threshold is reached and will continue to take and average readings until the time duration has expired.
The DFS II Series supplies you with comprehensive results that are easy to view and understand.
The DFS II Series comes standard with digital and analog outputs. RS232 outputs are supported with baud rates from 9600 to 115,600. Simply select the baud rate whether or not you want to gauge to transmit with or without units. You may select the Mitutoyo output when communicating with a Mitutoyo device. Or, you may use the ±2V analog output to drive alarams or other ancillary devices.
This digital force gauge is often used to collect tear strength test data on new materials, while it allows you to perform statistic analysis on the data directly on the screen. By mounting the DFS II to a Chatillon LTCM test stand you can perform testing at the end of a production line and stream the results to a PC for analysis.
A large, easy-to-read, high resolution, full color dot matrix LCD display supports a variety of standard gauge functions including normal and peak readings, high/low limits, set points, pass/fail results, statistical results, load averaging, load comparisons, % and sharp break detection, load cell actuation, and direction.
Test Stand Compatibility
The DFS II Series has a universal mounting backplate that enables you to fit the gauge to commonly used Chatillon force testers including the MT Series and LTCM Series tester.
Automate with Nexygen DF Software
Your DFS II can make use of our Nexygen DF software for gauge applications. With Nexygen software, you can perform tests and graph results automatically using a personal computer. Load results may be shown graphically versus time. Tabular results are displayed and can be used to create relationships, queries or used to produce reports. You can format the display to match your requirements and establish pre and post-test questions that require the operator to answer questions based on the test setup. Setup is easy too. Menus, radio buttons and prompts guide you through instrument and test setup. Since Nexygen DF software is OLE2 compatible, information can be exchanged transparently with Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint and Outlook.
This compact, easy-to-use force gauge is designed for basic and complex applications. Ideal for handheld or test stand applications, the DFS II may be equipped with integral load cells or smart remote sensors for load measurement or torque measurement. Measurement accuracy is better than 0.1% full scale in integral load cell or dedicated remote models.
The display can be inverted and displayed results may be “hidden” from the operator.
The DFS II Series supplies you with comprehensive results
that are easy to view and understand.
The gauge displays: Measured Result with Units, Operating Mode, Pass-Fail Result, High and Low Load Results, Saved Results, Statistical Calculations; Average with MIN and MAX Results, Cv with Average and Standard Deviation, % Differentiation between Successive Results, Standard Deviation, Graphical representation of saved results.
