If you need flexibility in your applications, the DFS II with non-dedicated remote load cells is the answer. As is the case with the dedicated load cells, the gauge may be handheld or remotely mounted and the load cell may be placed right where it needs to be to take the reading. However, this configuration also gives the user the flexibility of having interchangeable load cells that may be used with a single gauge.
This is the unit to select if there is a need for multiple ranges of measurements required: one unit can do it all. It is also more economical to purchase the DFS II-R-ND with SLC load cells than purchasing several individual gauges for the different range applications. The SLC load cells for the non-dedicated models are also available in higher ranges, to 10,000 lbf, allowing for a wider range of applications
There is a small price to pay for the additional range and economical flexibility of having non-dedicated remote load cells. If the non-dedicated remote load cell is chosen, the load cell is not dedicated to that model so the calibration is such that it allows for some variance when connected to different gauges. These units carry an accuracy of ±0.25% of full scale for standard ranges and ±0.50% of full scale for the extended ranges making this an accurate tool given the flexibility.
In addition to the force measure ment capability of the DFS II Series with non-dedicated remote load cells, Chatillon also offers the STS Series of remote torque sensors. When combined with the DFS II-R-ND Series, these rugged and accurate sensors turn your force gauge into a torque measurement device: no need to purchase another gauge. As is the case with the dedicated load cells, the gauge may be handheld our remotely mountedand the torque sensor may be manipulated to take the reading. This configuration also gives the user the flexibility of having force and torque measurement in a single gauge. This is the unit to select for maximum flexibility: one unit and interchangeable sensors can do it all. The STS series of torque sensors is available in ranges from 3 in-lb to 200 in-lb. The gauge will operate the same as if it were an integral load cell and all functions will operate normally.
