DPS Digital Force Gauge

Push / Pull Digital Force Gauge with Outputs – Series DPS
DISCONTINUED see DS2 Series

The DPS series represent the latest technology in an affordable, feature packed instrument. The rugged metal housing is ergonomically designed to fit your hand, yet durable enough to withstand harsh industrial environments.

The easy to read display tells you at a glance the unit of force measurement (lbf, kgf, or Newtons), tension or compression, if you are in Peak Mode, and whether the built-in NiCad batteries are low.

The standard outputs (RS-232C, Digimatic, and ±1VDC analog) allow you to capture data for permanent record. Choose the range or ranges that best suit your needs.

All DPS gauges are sold complete in kit form with gauge, hard plastic carrying case, full set of measuring attachments, extension rod, and AC adapter/charger. An optional handle to facilitate the measurement of heavy loads is also available.

All DPS gauges can be run on the internal NiCad batteries or the AC adapter/charger.

Note: Use an “R” suffix for reverse display units (for use on vertical test stand)
