The Chatillon® DFE II 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 hand held or test stand applications. The DFE II Series is available with capacities from 2 lbf (10 N) to 500 lbf (2500 N).
The DFE II features an integral load cell with a measurement accuracy of better than ±0.25% FS. A large, easy-to-read, high resolution dot matrix LCD full color display supports a variety of standard gauge functions including normal and peak readings, high/low limits, set points, pass/fail results, statistical results, load cell 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 II now also includes multiple language interfaces. The force gauge is able to change the display language from English to Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, and Chinese. The user can view the screen in color and a local language.
All DFE II Series force gauges come with a carrying case, battery adapter/charger, testing accessories, RS232 cable and NIST Certificate of Calibration with data. The DFE II Series has analog, USB and RS232 serial communication.
A large, easy-to-read full color LCD can display readings, icons and visually indicate gauge or test status using various colors. The high resolution display features brightness adjustments and can be inverted when required. The display can even be "hidden" at the press of a button. A load bargraph indicating load direction, measured load and safe load and helps prevent overloads: the load bar changes from green to red to indicate proximity to load cell capacity. The integral loadcells feature mechanical overload protection at 150% Full Scale.
The rubber keypad features dedicated and dynamic function keys. The function keys correspond to displayed options and guide the user during operation. A navigation pod lets you navigate through the menus and to scroll and change values quickly. The innovative "i" key can be used to display critical information on the gauge such as gauge capacity and resolution, battery life remaining, loadcell overload history, even service information including last calibration date, or the location of service centers.
The DF II Series features an integral loadcell sensor that delivers repeatable, accurate results. The innovative load bargraph shows dynamic load, direction of load and warns you of pending overload conditions. Smart technology in the gauge even keeps track of overload history to aide in maintenance and troubleshooting.
The DF II Series supplies you with comprehensive results that are easy to view and understand. The gauge displays:
The DFE 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 and whether or not you want to gauge to transmit with our without units. The unit also is supplied with USB communications capability. You may select the Mitutoyo output when communicating with a Mitutoyo device. Or, you may use the ±2V analog output to drive alarms or other ancillary devices. The DFE II features protocols for Chatillon test stands, Mitutoyo devices and an Alternate protocol.
The DFE II Series incorporates flash memory and hosts a set of self-diagnostic functions for monitoring the display, keypad and electronics. Using the "i" key, you have immediate access to battery conditions, including estimated battery life remaining. You can also view loadcell status, including the number of overloads that have been applied to the gauge. Zero offset verification is standard and a step-by-step calibration procedure is built-in allowing you to calibrate your DFE II gauge with certified standards.
