Accuracy Class

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 force/torque indicators. 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 1000 readings. 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 pass-fail testing.

What is the voltage, polarity and current/power of the AC power adapter? Do you have a recommended part?

Asked by: Jose Oscar Mur Miranda
thanks for your inquiry The power adapter : Input= 100-240v – 50-60 Hz 0.3a Output= 12v - 0.5a 6w hope this was helpful?

Dose this device come with a NIST traceable certificate of calibration.

Asked by: Maint engineer
Thank you for your inquiry, All RLC or RTQ sensors come with a NIST traceable calibration certificate.
