Chatillon DFE and E-DFE Series Digital Force Gauges

DFE and E-DFE Chatillon Force Gauge


View Specifications Cart

The Chatillon DFE series digital force gauge marks a new era in force measurement. This compact, easy to use force gauge is designed for economy applications without compromising functionality. The Chatillon DFE digital force gauge is ideal for both hand held and test stand applications. The DFE gauge is available in capacities from 2 pounds (10 N) to 500 pounds (2500 N). The DFE features an integral loadcell with a measurement accuracy of better than 0.25% full scale.

A large, easy to read, high resolution dot matrix LCD display 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. Loads are displayed in oz, g, lb, kg and N units. The display can be inverted and displayed results may be "hidden" from the operator.

The Chatillon DFE digital force gauge may be specified with or without RS232 serial communication. All DFE gauges come with a carrying case, adapter / charger, testing accessories and NIST Certificate of Calibration with data.

Do More... Pay Less!

The new Chatillon DFS series force gauges deliver more features without compromising easy of use, accuracy and, very importantly, costs to you. You'll do more with a Chatillon DFS series gauge and you'll get the reliability and quality that you've come to expect from Chatillon force measurement instruments.

Easy to Read Display

A large, easy to read dot matrix display can display up to eight lines of information. The high resolution display features contrast adjustments and can be inverted when required. The display can even be "hidden" at the press of a button. A load bargraph indicated load direction, measured load and safe load and helps to prevent overloads. The integral loadcells feature mechanical overload protection of 150% full scale.

Single Touch Operation

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, loadcell overload history, even service information including last calibration date or the location of service centers.

Data Outputs and Personal Computer Integration

The DFS force gauge features RS-232 and Mitutoyo Digimatic digital outputs. the gauge also features a ±2Vdc analog output. Measured values may be transmitted to an external device using a manual command at the gauge, or a measured value may be transmitted based on an an externally driven command, e.g. from a personal computer or other serially interfaced device.

Comprehensive Results

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, loadcell overload history, even service information including last calibration date, or the location of service centers.

Dependable Measurements

The DFS series force gauge features an internal loadcell sensor that delivers repeatable, accurate results. The innovative load bargraph shows dynamic load, direction of load and warns you of pending overload conditions.

Calibrate and Verify Status

The DFE-series force gauge 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 into the gauge, allowing you to calibrate your DFS gauge with certified standards.

High and Low Load or Pass Fail Limits

The DFE digital force gauge may be configured with High and Low Load Limits or Pass-Fail Limits. Load limits allow you to establish setpoints for your testing. If the gauge exceeds a setpoint value, the gauge can provide a visual and audible alarm. You can set up a pass-fail limit based on a limit range or on a nominal value with a percentage bandwidth. Based on your setup, the gauge will provide you with a Pass-Fail indication.

High and Low Load or Pass Fail Limits

Advanced Testing With Statistics

The DFE digital force gauge operates in Normal and Peak modes. When peak operation is required, the display will indicate the peak reading and direction. Load values may be displayed in oz, g, kg, lb or N values.

Your DFE force gauge can store up to 10 test results in memory. Results may be viewed, cleared and used to calculate statistics. The gauge will display the number of results stored and will alert you when the memory is full.

  • Calculate Mean and also show you the MAX and MIN values for your calculation
  • Coefficient of Variation is calculated and displayed with the Mean and Standard Deviation value
  • Standard Deviation is calculated and displayed with the Mean and the Variance value. Total Population and Sample (n-1) methods are supported
  • Calculate and display percentage difference between consecutive test results.

Statistical Results

 

Simplified Setup

Menus and intelligent prompts make gauge setup fast and easy. Gauge options are presented in "List Format". Using the navigation pod and function keys, you simply select the functions and parameters required. The gauge will guide you through the setup process. Default settings are provided and a "Quick Reset" allows you to re-establish defaults with a single key press. If your gauge features digital outputs, you can print your gauge setup parameters for record archiving or use it as a setup template for other DFE force gauges in your plant.

Simplified Setup

Personal Computer Integration

The E-DFE gauge features digital and analog outputs. RS-232 for integration with Chatillon NEXYGEN software and a Mitutoyo Digimatic output is available. The gauge will also supply an analog output of ±2Vdc. Use Nexygen software for data acquisition, graphical load v. time results, analysis and reporting. With Nexygen software, store an unlimited number of results for analysis.

Self Diagnostics

The DFE digital force gauge 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 gauge with certified standards.
