Force Gauge DS2

Capacity from 0 - 2 N up to 0 - 1000 N

Digital force gauge for determination of compression and tension forces, usable for numerous applications in a lot of sectors of industry
Force measuring unit with RS 232, Digimatic and analog output signal

Low cost standard model for compression and tension forces

Special Features

  • 2 operation modes:
    real time - display the actual tension or compression force
    peak force - to measure the peak force during a test
  • Force measuring device with high sampling rate of 1000 times/sec to measure the peak force during a test switchable to 30 times/sec for applications with slow-changing forces or for damping forces, beeing influenced by vibrations.
  • Display update time 10 mal/sec
  • Output signal:
    - RS 232 C for connecting to a PC
    - analog ±1V DC
    - Mitutoyo Digimatic e. g. for connecting to a printer
  • Force gauge with user switchable units: N, gf (kgf) und ozf (lbf)
  • Programmable high/low set-points for go/no-go testing:
    Display: underrun (-)  -  good (O)  -  exceeding (+)

  • »Zero Set« to zero the gauge in all operating positions
  • Manufacturers calibration report is included
  • Display can be reversed for inverted use; e. g. on vertical test stand
