Economical Force Gauge

Imada
  • $795.00


These easy to use Imada DS2 digital force gauges (force measurements up to 220 lbf) feature the RS-232C output for PC connecition. Mount these Imada DS2 gauges to a test stand for highly specialized force measurement testing applications.

The DS2 series is Imada’s most economical digital force gauge. It features 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.

The gauge can measure both tension and compression, with an icon indicating the direction on the display. A low battery icon will appear when the NI-MH batteries are low. Overload icon will flash and unit will emit audible alarm at 110% of full scale.

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 records.

The DS2 is compatible with Imada’s SW-1X Force Data Acquisition Spreadsheet. Acquire and analyze data in real-time in Microsoft Excel. Log and chart measurements as well as statistical information and control the gauge from your computer.
