The DFG-RS5 is a high performance
digital indicator that works with a
wide variety of plug and play force
and torque sensors. All calibration
and configuration data is stored in
the sensors smart connector instead
of the indicator making the sensors
truly interchangeable. In addition all
of the remote sensors are also fully
compatible with the DFG-RS3 basic
A variety of interchangeable force
and torque sensors are available for
use with the DFG-RS3 series.
Sensors are available in a range of
capacities from 0.25 to 10,000 pounds
force for load cells and 10 oz-in to
100 lb-in for torque sensors. In
addition to the pre-calibrated sensors
the DFG-RSA programmable adaptor
allows the end user to calibrate most
bridge type force or torque sensor
with a 1 to 3 mV/V full scale output to
work with the DFG-RS5.
The DFG-RS5 also shares menu
structure and most specifications
with the DFG55 force gauges. It’s
fast 7000 Hz sampling rate produces
accurate results even for quick action
tests. It also has an average mode
that addresses the need to record the
average load over time and an
on board data memory for up to
A backlit graphic LCD displays large
characters and a menu is available
to access the gauges features and
configurable parameters. Units
also have a USB output for data
collection and setpoint indicators for
