DS2 digital force gauges feature a large, easy-to-read LCD display and simple push-button operation. An ergonomic metal housing protects the highly accurate loadcell and electronics in tough industrial environments.

When measuring, units of measure and a tension or compression icon are displayed. A battery icon indicates when the NI-MH batteries are low. If an overload occurs the display will flash to warn you.

If desired, you can program high/low setpoints to enable Go/NoGo testing using the LCD indicators. Standard outputs (RS-232C, Digimatic, and ±1VDC analog) enable you to acquire data for permanent record.
Choose a range or ranges that best suit your application. All DS2 gauges are sold in a complete kit with gauge, hard plastic carrying case, a set of six measuring attachments and AC adapter/charger. All DS2 gauges can run on the internal NI-MH batteries or the AC adapter/charger. An optional handle to facilitate the measurement of heavy loads is also available.

DS2 Kit

SW-1 Data Acquisition Software (optional) You can acquire and analyze real-time data from any D2 gauge with an RS-232 port directly into any Windows program. Log and chart measurements as well as statistical information and control the gauge from your computer. SW-1XV is a highly customized Excel spreadsheet specifically designed for capturing and analyzing real-time data from Imada gauges with a RS-232 port. Other features include a memory download option for Imada Z Series gauges. If desired, the entire stack can be saved to disk, analyzed or cleared. Hardware Requirements: Imada Gauge with RS-232 serial port, CB- 203 cable, a Pentium or equivalent with 32MB RAM or better, a mouse and approximately 1 MB hard disk space. Windows PC Software Requirements: Windows XP, NT, Vista and Excel 5.0 or later.

DB-1 Data Input Button (optional) DB-1 is a simple, compact, one channel interface that enables the user to send measurement data to a PC running SW-1, data acquisition software or other software. The data input button simplifies peak measuring tests because it ‘zeros’ the gauge after sending the data to the computer eliminating the need to reset manually for each test.
