New CHATILLION® DFE Series Digital Force Gauges

AMETEK - 11.18.2005

The Chatillion® DFE Series from AMETEK Test & Calibration Instruments is a compact, easy-to-use force gauge designed for economy applications without compromising functionality. The new DFE Series features two models and seven capacities each; the DFE Series (with no outputs) and the E-DFE Series (with digital and analog outputs).

Ideal for handheld or test stand applications, the Chatillion® DFE digital force gauge is available with capacities from 2 lbf (1 kgf, 10 N) to 500 lbf (250 kgf, 2500 N). It includes an integral load cell with a measurement accuracy of better than 0.25% full scale and mechanical overload protection to 150% full scale.

A large, easy-to-read, high resolution dot matrix LCD (128 x 64) display, supports a variety of standard gauge functions including normal and peak tension/compression readings, high/low limits, set points, pass/fail results, statistical results, load cell limits, actuation and direction. The display can be inverted and displayed results may be "hidden" from the operator. The DFE Series also features a wide variety of statistical calculations ranging from mean with max/min values to % differentiation.

The DFE Series force gauges come with a carrying case, battery adapter/charger, testing accessories and NIST Certificate of Calibration with data. Uncertainty data per ISO/IEC 17025 is supplied standard. The DFE gauge may be specified with or without RS232 serial communication, mitutoyo digimatic and/or 2Vdc analog.

AMETEK Test and Calibration Instruments is a unit of AMETEK, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of electric motors and electronic instruments with annualized sales of $1.5 billion.
