Digital Force Gauge

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


The CHATILLON® DFX Series is an economical digital force gauge ideal for applications where users are interested in basic peak force measurement. The DFX is available in four capacities (10lbf, 50 lbf, 100 lbf, 200 lbf) and features an integral loadcell with a measurement accuracy of better than 0.5% full scale. The DFX Series operates using two (2) 9Vdc alkaline batteries or using the standard battery eliminator. The battery eliminator is supplied with a US, UK and EURO style plug. Under battery operation, the DFX Series will operate for over 120 hours of continuous use. A large, easy-to-read, high resolution dot matrix LCD display supports a variety of standard gauge functions including normal and peak readings. Loads are displayed in ozf, gf, lbf, kgf and N units. The display language may be setup to indicate in English, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese and Chinese. The DFX Series’ calibration procedure in included in the gauge’s setup. The DFX Series force gauges come with a carrying case, battery eliminator, fl at and hook adapters. The DFX Series is supplied with an optional Certificate of Calibration with NIST data.


The DFX Force Gauge can be used used in conjunction with a Chatillon motorized test stand (such as LTCM-100 - 100 lbf/500 N capacity, LTCM-500 - 550 lbf/2500 N load capacity) or a Chatillon digital tester (such as the new TCD-225 Series - 225 lbf/1 kN). By regulating the speed of tests, test stands help ensure consistency between tests.
