7 Ranges up to 220lbs
Measures Push / Pull Force

The DS2 is a versatile Digital Force Gauge that measures push and pull forces. 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.
