Dillon EDXtreme -- for the toughest jobs you face
Guesswork is not acceptable -- failure is not an option. When you have people working around high tension cables and massive loads, theres no room for error. You have to have complete confidence in the strength and accuracy of your measurement tools.
Uncompromising on Safety -- adaptable to the need
The EDxtreme exemplifies the trademark precision and rugged construction of Dillon dynamometers. Its highly refined design draws on the inherent strengths of premium grade materials to achieve a 5:1 minimum factor of safety.
While the EDxtreme may be configured for something as simple as a digital hanging scale, it offers a higher level of intelligence. With user-defined functions and sophisticated communication options, the EDxtreme readily adapts to multi-tasking operations or multi-link systems capable of monitoring a series of critical stress points from a single location: it is the definition of application versatility.
Building a precision instrument that can survive real-world punishment requires masterful engineering. This is where Dillons experience shines through. The engineers assigned to the EDxtreme drew on a depth of industrial application knowledge and conducted exhaustive materials testing to achieve the highest structural integrity.
Superior strength and corrosion resistance - High capacity models are constructed of electroless nickel-plated aircraft-quality alloy steel. Lower capacity models are anodized aircraft-quality aluminum.
5:1 factor of safety - This measure of strength and safety is maintained in all capacities. Computer modeling confirms the low stress and the long product life that is inherent in the EDXtreme design.
Retained hardware - Allows permanent attachment of centering spacers, which eliminates fumbling during high capacity rigging.
NEMA 4X/IP55 - The EDxtreme is clearly the choice for reliability in any environment -- in plant or out on the job site.
Xtreme accuracy: 0.1%
High resolution and accurate repeatable readings are essential to proper weighing. The higher standards set for the EDxtreme meant taking the time to ensure that material characteristics, load element design and strain gauge meshed perfectly. The result of that effort is a typical accuracy of 0.1% of full scale capacity. The enhanced resolution made of 1 part in 5000 provides the level of readability needed for refined weighing.
Exclusive SOFTKEY interface - Dillon has eliminated confusing menus for faster setup and simple operation. In addition to lbf, kgf and Newtons, programmable functions can correct for gravitational variations and allow the use of custom units of measurement.
Wide andle LCD - Provides improved readability over a wider viewing angle and is available with backlighting for low light conditions.
Battery operation - The EDxtreme is powered by two standard C-cell batteries. Batteries are easily accessible for fast replacement.
A basic stand-alone model can be easily upgraded in the field to accomodate changing needs. Remote configuration, data acquisition and single point monitoring of multiple links are all possible with the hardwired or radio communication options available with the EDxtreme.
Popular industry-standard shackles insure proper fit
Battery compartment with easy access without tools
Sturdy aircraft-quality aluminum (or plated alloy steel case on high capacity models)
High-resolution dot-matrix LCD display offers large numbers without confusing abbreviations or multipliers
Injection molded, thick Lexan panels offer superior impact protection
Softkey interface allows easy and intuitive operation and configuration
NEMA 4X/IP55 designed for weather and water resistance
Rounded ends reduce weight and prevent binding and snagging with rigging
Enclosure: designed to NEMA4X/IP55. Suitable for continuous outdoor use.
Accuracy: 0.1% of capacity
Repeatability: 0.1% of capacity (normal resolution mode)
Safe overload: 200% of capacity
Body protection: Aluminum capacities are anodized. Alloy steel capacities are electroless nickel plated
Bearings: unmatched repeatability attained by needle bearings in shackle pin holes up to EDx-10K. Precision machined shackles act as inner race.
Shackles: Forged industry standard anchor shackle bows, galvanized finish. Models up to EDx-10K use precision machined shackle pin. Higher capacities use forged pin.
Display: 128 x 64 dot-graphic LCD display shows up to 6 digits 1 (26mm) high plus annunciators and softkeys. Digits are .11 (7mm) thick for unmatched readability.
Display Update Rate: 2 times/second
Connector: Recessed sealed connector may be used for direct serial communications or connection to a Communicator remote.
RS-232 / RS-485: Print or extract data easily. Continuous output can drive a scoreboard. Configurable poll character.
Battery Life: 320 hours typical use with two C-cell alkaline batteries. 40 hours typical with Radio Link system.
Operating Temp: -4°F to 140°F (-20°C to 60°C)
Ships with dynamometer, shipping/storage crate(s), batteries, manual, and certificate of calibration
One of the foremost reasons for choosing an electronic dynamometer is added functionality. The radio or hardwired options available with the EDxtreme offer the convenience and safety of remote operation. Additionally, data from the dynamometer(s) can be downloaded to a PC via an RS-232 connection for compilation and analysis or to generate hard-copy printouts.
Remote control and radio communications are not new to the Dillon product line. In fact, it is the depth of Dillons experience in this area that led to meaningful innovations in the design of the EDxtreme and its optional remote Communicator.
Improved radio performance
Unlike the single frequency products on the market today, the EDxtreme radio dynamometer utilizes leading edge 2.4Ghz radio frequency technology to eliminate common interference. This technology will automatically hop from frequency to frequency to establish and maintain the strongest, most reliable communication.
Dynamic Monitoring and control
The optional Communicator is an extremely powerful hand-held remote that can define the function and manage the operation of one or more EDxtreme dynamometers using wired or radio technologies. Through the programmable SOFTKEY interface, one Communicator can monitor multiple dynamometers within the same airspace. In multiple-link lifting arrays, the Communicator can display readings at any or all lift points and calculate the total load.
