NEXYGEN™ DF Software
for Chatillon® Series Digital Force & Torque Gauges

NEXYGEN DF software expands the functionality of your CHATILLON Series digital force gauge. This all-new and easy-to-use Windows based package interfaces directly to your digital force gauge. You may perform break tests, limits tests and torque tests. You can download peak load results from the gauge and display your results in tabular and graphical formats. Graphical results include markers denoting exact point positions. Results can be color coded for immediate pass/fail recognition. You can easily specify units of measure, fonts, titles, force measurement resolution.

The software provides basic force measurement tensile and compression test formats including pull to break, pull to limit, compress to rupture and compress to limit. Results are presented in a spreadsheet format so you can analyze and manipulate data and perform common mathematical and statistical calculations.

The software is easy to setup and features intelligent prompts, menus, combo boxes and other methods to get you up and running quickly and efficiently with minimal training. Navigation is simple using "drag & drop" and cut, copy and paste techniques. Data is easily exported to WORD, EXCEL, ACCESS, POWERPOINT or OUTLOOK.
