Chatillon, specializing in mechanical measurement equipment for many years, now launches a new generation of digital dynamometer: DF3 series.
The new DF3 series digital dynamometers feature a unique ergonomic design to ensure stable grip operation. Large full-color display with clear readings and optimized ICONS makes it easy to read and navigate results. The rugged rubber keyboard ensures a single point of action corresponding to the options displayed on the screen and guides the user through the operation. The simple, intuitive user interface combined with a number of advanced features make the DF3 series an ideal dynamometer choice for users to help optimize the testing process and save time.
The new generation dynamometer is equipped with richer test Settings to improve test efficiency. Users can pre-define test Settings in Settings, automatically save test results, and automatically export data for further analysis. Up to 40 hours of battery life will extend the life of handheld devices and reduce the need to charge them.
In addition, the DF3 series dynamometers support a variety of standard dynamometer functions including normal and peak readings, load averaging, fracture detection, upper/lower limit setting, set points, pass/fail results, statistical results, sensor drive and direction setting.
The new DF3 series dynamometers are available in two models with multiple load options and sampling rates up to 30 kHz:
DFE3 series - economical dynamometers designed for easy applications without compromising functionality. Provides loads from 2 LBF (10 N) to 500 LBF (2500 N) with accuracy better than 0.2% of full range.
DFE3 series - high end dynamometers designed for basic and complex applications. The dynamometer is ideal for handheld applications and for complex applications with test machines. Provides loads from 0.5 LBF (2.5 N) to 500 LBF (2500 N). Accuracy is better than 0.1% of full scale.
The load unit can switch freely between OZF, GF, LBF, KGF and N. Dynamometer comes with durable carrying case and adapter.
In conjunction with the release of the new DF3 series of digital dynamometers, Chatillon also launched an upgraded version of ForceTest 3.0, its force measurement software. The software connects directly to DF3 series dynamometers, enabling its users to automatically perform tests and record test graphs and data using a personal computer. ForceTest 3.0 offers a more optimized user interface, filtering options, powerful raw data collection and presentation, and a comprehensive library of test result options. The software is included with the DFS3 series dynamometers and can also be purchased separately.
