Unclear on WebsiteI was told that the meter and load cell were a kit, even after talking with your engineering. Other loads cells are $500 less! We were in a pinch, so we order both items separately. But $1500 for a load cell and meter seems excessive. Called customer support - was no help understanding, just kept stating "sold separately". It seems very odd that the meter and load cell are exactly the same price.

In-accurate InformationContacted Omega prior to purchasing the indicator and asked if you could disconnect a load cell after applying pressure then reconnect to the same load cell with the same loads applied, would it still read current load? Initially told yes, made the purchase to find out that was untrue. Contacted Omega again and then they told me the load cell would start back at zero. So now instead of being able to connect and reconnect from one load cell to another you need to purchase one indicator per load cell to constantly monitor the loads in different areas. My application covers a large area and having fragile wires hanging everywhere is not feasible. The specific PN's I'm referencing are: DFG-RS3, DFG-RSA and LCWD-1K. Due to poor information provided prior to purchasing and the horrible customer service experience OMEGA gets a low rating.
Are size dimensions available for the sensors that are used in conjunction with the DFG-RS3 force/torque indicator. We have a handle that we wish to measure both the pull force to allow actuation and rotational torque for valve opening.

Dimensional drawing for all RLC and RTQ load cells and torque sensors for the DFG-RS3 and DFG-RS5 are contained in the RLC and RTQ users manual which is available for download from the MANUALS file on our website.

Can this be used to measure the force (in netwons) of pulling a load of freight on a warehouse floor using a pallet jack?
Asked by: YBSC
The DFG-RSA is a remote sensor adaptor. The main unit is the DFG-RS3. The main unit can certainly be used to measure pulling force, the setup just needs to be appropriate for the application. For any further questions about your specific application please feel free to email us at email@example.com.

Does this come with a calibration certificate?

Thank you for your question?
Unfortunately we will need a little more information from you on the product you are inquiring about.

Does DFG-RS3 come with the Torque Sensors for 10 oz-in to 100 lb-in Ranges? If yes, could you kindly provide a picture of the sensor (did not find in the manual).
Asked by: Chen
Thank you for your inquiry.
The website now has the linc to all the sensors for this unit.
hope this was helpful?
