New Chatillon® Model DFX II, DFE II and DFS II Force Gauges Are Fully Backward Compatible

Bluetooth communication and full-color displays are among the new features of a series of updated Chatillon® digital force gauges introduced by AMETEK Test & Calibration Instruments.

The Chatillon DFX II, DFE II and DFS II models span the full range of handheld and stand-mounted force gauge applications from the simplest “Go-No Go” to the most sophisticated quality control. This allows users to purchase only the tension and compression force measurement capabilities they need to meet quality assurance and regulatory requirements.

The three new gauges are designed for use in a wide range of industries including pharmaceutical/biomedical, electronics, packaging, automotive, general manufacturing and military industries.

The high-end Model DFS II is the first gauge in its class with onboard Bluetooth connectivity for wireless transmission of readings to a computer. It is supplied with AMETEK’s NEXYGEN DF software to support statistical quality control. The Model DFS II can be equipped with integral loadcells or smart remote sensors for load measurement and torque measurement. Accuracy is better than 0.1% full scale.

Models DFE II and DFS II introduce full-color displays for easier reading and rapid recognition of unit status and results.

The Model DFE II is a compact, easy-to-use gauge for handheld or test stand applications. It 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.

The Model DFX II is an economical solution for applications requiring basic peak force measurement. The new model adds a rechargeable power supply and greater accuracy. It is available in four capacities (10lbf, 50 lbf, 100 lbf, 200 lbf) and features an integral loadcell with a measurement accuracy of better than 0.3% full scale.

All three gauges are fully backward compatible with previous stands, accessories and software so they can be quickly integrated into existing test processes. Loads are displayed in ozf, gf, lbf, kgf and N units. All are supplied with durable carrying cases. For more information, visit
