DS2 Digital Force Gauge

Click images to enlarge.
7 Ranges up to 220lbs
Measures Push / Pull Force

The new DS2 digital force gauges feature a large, easy-to-read LCD display and simple push-button operation. An ergonomic metal housing protects the highly accurate loadcell and electronics in tough industrial environments.

When measuring, units of measure and a tension or compression icon are displayed. A battery icon indicates the NI-MH batteries are low. If an overload occurs the display will flash to warn you.

If desired, you can program high/low setpoints to enable Go/NoGo testing using the LCD indicators. Standard outputs (RS-232C, Digimatic, and ±1VDC analog) enable you to acquire data for permanent record.

All DS2 gauges can run on the internal NI-MH batteries or the AC adapter/charger. An optional handle to facilitate the measurement of heavy loads is also available.
