The ergonomically designed DART 2.0 provides an easy to use force gauge for incoming quality inspection, finished goods testing, R and D and other force-related applications. Onboard statistic calculations provide fast access to maximum, minimum, average and standard deviation data.

The USB port and 1,000 point memory allows for data to be easily exported in real time or once testing is complete. In addition, the RS-232C and analog outputs allow the DART 2.0 series maximum flexibility.

Applications where the DART 2.0 series excels: Wallboard, wire pull, wire crimp, trigger pull, brake pedal, aerospace ceramic, spring, food ripeness, corrugated paper strength, blister pack medical component, muscle strength and ergonomic testing.
