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 our popular DPPH Series force gauge, the DG Series features a larger, 2.25-inch dial for improved resolution and readability, peak hold button, durable plastic housing, universal mounting plate, ergonomic shape and improved accuracy of +0.5% of full scale. The DG gauge is an excellent, economical solution for tensile or compression testing.

The DG Series features an an easy to read concentric dial that measures clockwise only. Dial rotates 360-degrees for taring. A peak hold switch 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.
