The Chatillon DFX Force Gauge Compared to other Chatillon Gauges

Chatilon-AMETEK is pleased to introduce their newest Chatillon digital force gauge. The Chatillon DFX Digital Force Gauge was created to serve those applications where the customer is only interested in peak tension or peak compression measurements. The Chatillon DFX Gauge is for those applications that don't need data storage, statistics, load limits, measurement accuracy greater than 0.5%, digital or analog outputs, RS232 communications or a Certificate of Calibration.

The Chatillon DFX is a battery operated gauge. It uses two 9Vdc alkaline batteries for power for over 120 hours of continuous use. Or, the DFX Force Gauge may be used with a battery eliminator accessory, provided standard. The battery eliminator can plug into any 120/240Vac source outlet and comes with three different plug configurations for USA, UK and EURO style outlets.

The Chatillon DFX digital force gauge has a 30-minute automatic power shutdown feature that will prolong battery life. The user may choose to turn this feature on or off.

The Chatillon DFX has a measurement accuracy of better than 0.5% of full scale. It uses new load sensors, and like the DF Series, displays overload history and an overload warning when the measured load is greater than 116% of the rated capacity.

The Chatillon DFX digital force gauge has the same type of high resolution display as the DF Series, except that the displayed information is presented in larger type for easier reading. Chatillon has added load direction arrows and eliminated the negative sign to distinguish between tensile and compressive loads. The load indicator arrows are dynamic and display only when a load is being applied to the sensor.

The Chatillon DFX digital force gauge is available in four capacities: 10 lbf, 50 lbf, 100 lbf and 200 lbf. Like the DF Series, the DFX Series has selectable units of measurement: ozf, gf, lbf, kgf or N. The units of measurement may be "locked" to prevent the user from changing the units while in operation.

The Chatillon DFX digital force gauge has user-selectable display languages. The display may be configured to read out in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German and Chinese (Mandarin). The user manual is also provide in these languages.

Chatillon DFX Digital Force GaugeThe Chatillon DFX force gauge comes with a flat adapter, hook adapter, Certificate of Conformance, protective carrying case and battery eliminator -- a Certificate of Calibration with NIST can be purchased as an option. All DF Series accessories will fit the DFX Series force gauge, including the medical accessories: FCEK and MSCK kits. The DFX Series is not yet classified as a Class II Medical Device as are the FCE and MSC models. Chatillon is currently in the formal process of FDA compliance.

The DFX Series housing dimensions are identical to the DF Series, so it uses the same tester adapters for mounting to the MT Series, LTCM Series or TCM Series. Mounts directly to the LTCM Series without adapters- an excellent, low-cost force measurement testing system. Capacities of 100 lbf or below feature a #10-32 thread, while the 200 lbf capacity features a 5/16-18 thread. All DF handle assemblies fit the DFX Series.

The DFX Series keypad has been simplified to include a Mode, Peak and Zero key. The Info ("i") key is used for gauge information and for gauge setup. Press Zero at any time during gauge setup to escape to home.

And, Chatillon has added an LBF capacity label on all DFX Series gauges so you can determine the capacity of the gauge without having to turn the gauge On.

The Chatillon® DFX Series Medical Kits are compact, easy-to-use force gauge kits ideal for physical medicine, occupational medicine and sports medicine applications and general patient assessment in family, neurological and orthopedic practices. Simplicity was a key design criteria for both clinicians and technicians. Measurement accuracy is better than 0.5% full scale. A large, easy-to-read, high resolution dot matrix LCD display indicates peak push or pull forces. Measurements are displayed in ozf, gf, lbf, kgf and N units. The gauge is available in two models (M-DFX and K-DFX) for medical applications.
