Bestech Australia presents the Chatillon SLC Series load cells and STS Series torque sensors, which are designed to be used exclusively with the DFS-R-ND Series digital indicator. The sensors all feature “smart technology”. The digital indicator recognises the load cell or torque sensor and automatically scales the gauge to the capacity of the sensor connected.

Features of the torque sensors include:

  • Load readings on the torque sensor are selectable in gf, ozf, lbf, kgf, and N. These load cells have mechanical overload protection to 150% full scale
  • Because of the “smart technology”, the load cell will maintain a history of overload occurrences. Load cell values and sensitivity factors are stored in memory within the sensor plug. Capacities up to 50000N are available
  • Torque may be measured in oz-in, lb-in, N-cm, kg-cm and N-m in either clockwise or counterclockwise direction on the torque sensor
  • Torque sensors feature a Jacobs chuck type connection for holding samples
  • Capacities of the torque sensors are up to 20 N-m and other features are similar to the load cells
  • Both the load cells and torque sensors have a retractable cord, which may fully extend to over 2.4m
  • A 15-pin D connector plugs into the DFS-R-ND housing
The digital indicator is ideal for handheld or test stand applications, and has a large, easy-to-read, high resolution dot matrix LCD display which supports a variety of standard gauge functions. These include:
  • Contact closure
  • Normal tensile, compression and torque measurement
  • Load average
  • Pass-fail limits
  • Peak tension, compression and torque measurement
  • Load comparison
  • Sharp and % break detection
  • Statistical calculations
  • High and low setpoint limits
  • Time average
Measurement accuracy is better than 0.25% full scale (higher accuracy available). This digital indicator comes standard with RS-232 cable, carrying case, battery adapter/charger, and Certificate of Conformance. It is also supplied with the NEXYGEN DF Series software.
