When combined with the DFS3, these rugged and accurate sensors turn your force gauge into a torque measurement device: no need to purchase another gauge. As is the case with the dedicated loadcells, the gauge may be handheld or used in diverse remote configurations with the straight cable of app. 9ft (2.8M) .
This configuration also offers the flexibility of having both a force and a torque measurement in a single gauge. This is the unit to select for maximum flexibility: one unit and interchangeable sensors can do it all. The gauge will operate the same as if it were an integral loadcell and all functions will operate normally.
The Chatillon® AQM series Torque Transducers are designed to operate in both clockwise and counterclockwise directions using strain gauge technology and an accuracy better than 0.3% of full scale is now possible for all detachable AQM Torque Transducers. All AQM Torque Transducers are calibrated in both clockwise and counterclockwise.
Versatility and Simplification
The external torque transducer can be used together with our force gauge DFS3 to offer ultimate flexibility when performing different types of tests in various applications without having to constantly change settings. All settings can be preconfigured so that the sensors are ready for use, and this especially increases the efficiency when doing repeated testing day-after-day.
Up to two external sensors can be connected in the DFS3 force gauges. Together with the internal sensor., the full set-up provides a 3-in-1 device. The force gauge shows the results from one sensor at a time, so that there is no doubt as to which sensor the results come from.
It is easy to connect the two external sensors – they both have an ADC inline box, which ensures a stable digital signal and enables the force gauge itself to identify them with a single click. The digital communication offers an improved accuracy and keeps the calibration information stored within the external device, meaning it can be used by other DFS3 gauges without affecting readings. This makes it plug-and-play.
Unique User Interface
The AQM sensors are automatically recognized by the DFS3 force gauge. The integrated electronics associated with the sensors contain all the calibration parameters necessary to guarantee the best measurement precision and metrological monitoring. In addition, potential overloads, dates, and values are also stored in memory and displayed.
Always up to Speed
With the DFS3 you are always sure to have the latest firmware on your device. Our cloud-based software AMETEK Device Agent helps you identify the latest firmware and get it updated in only 60 seconds.
Versatility and Flexibility
All the DFS3s have an internal Loadcell and TWO external transducer inputs. A Test Station could be configured and set up with 3 transducers. The DFS3 manages and interfaces with one sensor at a time. With FIVE Test Setups available, you can pre-configure your tests with the required transducer. This simplifies and improves the quality and reliability of your measurements.
