DFS Series

Digital Force Gauge With Integral Loadcell

We're sorry. The Chatillon DFS Force Gauges are obsolete and no longer available. The replacement is: Chatillon DFS II Series.


The CHATILLON DFS Series offers the best price performance of any digital force gauge available today. This compact, easy-to-use force gauge is designed for basic and complex applications. Ideal for handheld or test stand applications, the DFS may be equipped with integral loadcells or smart remote sensors for load measurement or torque measurement. Measurement accuracy is better than 0.1% full scale. A large, easy-to-read, high resolution dot matrix LCD display supports a variety of standard gauge functions including normal and peak readings, high/low limits, setpoints, pass/fail results, statistical results, load averaging, load comparisons, % and sharp break detection, loadcell actuation and direction. Loads are displayed in ozf, gf, lbf, kgf and N units. The display can be inverted and displayed results may be “hidden” from the operator. The DFS gauge comes standard with an RS-232 cable, carrying case, battery adapter/ charger, testing accessories and NIST Certificate of Calibration with data. Chatillon DFS Digital Force Gauges are sold in Canada by Digital Measurement Metrology.
