DG Series
High Capacity Mechanical Force Gauge

The Chatillon® DG Series mechanical force gauge is ideal for a wide range of force testing applications up to 500 lbf (2.5 kN). Based on the popular DPPH Series force gauge, the DG Series features improved resolution and readability, peak hold button, ergonomic shape and improved accuracy of ±0.5% of full scale. The DG gauge is an excellent, economical solution for tensile or compression testing, and is ideally suited for MT Series test stand applications.

The DG Series features an easy to read concentric dial which measures clockwise only. Dial rotates 360-degrees for taring. A peak hold button captures peak readings and can be easily and quickly returned to zero. A mechanical overload feature protects the gauge from damage. Available in lbf, kgf or N units of measure.

DG Series gauges come complete with protective carrying case and a set of stainless steel attachments. Calibration data is provided with a complete Calibration Certificate.
