Model X-C Force Gauge Model X-C Force Gauge with compression calibration

Model X-C comes in eleven capacities ranging from 25 lb to 50,000 lb or 10 kg to 20,000 kg. All feature accuracy of 1% of full capacity, except the 25,000 lb and 50,000 lb (10,000 kg and 20,000 kg) capacity instruments which are accurate to 2% of full capacity.
Model X-C is available in lb, kg or Newton capacities.


Model X-ST Force Gauge Model X-ST with tension calibration

Dillon offers the Model X-ST in nine capacities from 25 lb to 10,000 lb or 10 kg to 5,000 kg. Accuracy is 1% of full range. (Note: For applications requiring capacities beyond 10,000 lb or 5,000 kg in tension, consider the Dillon Dynamometer.)
Tension Force Gauges in capacities through 2,000 lb (1,000 kg) are supplied with two rod-end connectors. 5,000 lb and 10,000 lb (2,000 kg and 5,000 kg) capacities are equipped with convenient shackles and pins.
Model X-ST is available in lb, kg or Newton capacities.


Model X-PP Force Gauge Model X-PP with compression/tension calibration

Force gauges calibrated in push-pull are available in seven capacities in lb ranging from 50-0-50 to 5,000-0-5,000 and four metric capacities from 50-0-50 to 1,000-0-1,000 kg. Newton calibration is also available. Accuracy is 2% of maximum dial reading (based on total capacity of both compression and tension scales).
Model X-PP gauges in capacities up to and including 1,000-0-1,000 lb or 500-0-500 kg are supplied with a set of self-aligning spherical rod-end connectors for tension loading. Force is applied to connectors through a hardened steel pin which must be a slip fit in connector holes.
2,500-0-2,500 lb and 5,000-0-5,000 lb and 1,000-0-1,000 kg capacity gauges are equipped with two shackle adapters, shackles and pins. Shackles must be removed when compression load is involved. Force is then applied against shackle pins in a suitable test setup.
All push-pull gauges are supplied with a compression-loading spherical ball fitting for compression loading.


Model U Force Gauge Model U Force Gauge
Slim line design for added versatility

The Model U Force Gauge is an accurate (1% of full range) mechanical compression measurement instrument. Its slim line design has repeatedly proven valuable in installations where space is at a premium.
The versatility of this simple instrument is demonstrated by the fact that it can be used as a hand-held device, permanently mounted on a flat surface plate or used in test fixtures. Model U Force Gauge

U Force Gauges are available for measurement in lbs, kgs or Newtons. There are 9 lb capacities ranging from 25 lb to 10,000 lb. The 7 kg capacities range from 10 kg to 5,000 kg.
On light capacity models (25 lb to 250 lb or 10 kg to 100 kg), you can choose between flat bottom and recessed design.
Dillon also offers high capacity gauges with lb capacities 500 to 10,000 lb and metric capacities from 500 kg to 5,000 kg. High capacity gauges all have flat bottom design and each includes one pressure fitting of your choice.



    Options include:

  • Maximum load pointer which remains at peak load until manually reset. (Not available on the Model X-PP)
  • Zero position on dial may be factory positioned at 12, 3, 6, or 9 o'clock. Standard position is at 12 o'clock.
  • Shock-less dial indicator for installations involving the sudden application or release of force. (Maximum pointer cannot be supplied with shock-less dial indicator.)
