Dillon EDXtreme Dynamometer

Rating: Tags: , , SKU: EDXtreme. Categories: ,

The DILLON EDXtreme exemplifies the trademark precision and rugged construction of Dillon dynamometers. Its highly refined design draws on the inherent strengths of premium grade materials to achieve a 5:1 minimum factor of safety.*

While the EDXtreme may be configured for something as simple as a digital hanging scale, it offers a higher level of intelligence. With user-defined functions and sophisticated communication options, the EDXtreme readily adapts to multi-tasking operations or multi-link systems capable of monitoring a series of critical stress points from a single location. It is the definition of application versatility.

Building a precision instrument that can survive real-world punishment requires masterful engineering. This is where Dillon’s experience shines through. The engineers assigned to the EDXtreme drew on a depth of industrial application knowledge and conducted exhaustive materials testing to achieve the highest structural integrity.

One of the foremost reasons for choosing an electronic dynamometer is added functionality. The radio or hardwired options available with the EDXtreme offer the convenience and safety of remote operation. Additionally, data from the dynamometer(s) can be downloaded to a PC via an RS-232 connection for compilation and analysis or to generate hard-copy printouts.

The optional Communicator is an extremely powerful hand-held remote that can define the function and manage the operation of one or more EDXtreme dynamometers using wired or radio technologies. Through the programmable SOFTKEY interface, one or more Communicators can monitor multiple dynamometers within the same airspace. In multiple-link lifting arrays, the Communicator can display readings at any or all lift points and calculate the total load.

Since 1937, Dillon Dynamometers have been chosen for the jobs where only the best will do. Now, Dillon has once again lifted the performance bar and set the standard for others to follow.

* Models with 75 T/160,000 lb or higher capacity feature a 4:1 safety factor and 0.3% accuracy.

Xtreme accuracy: 0.1%

Accurate repeatable readings are essential to proper weighing. The higher standards set for the EDx Crane Scales meant taking the time to ensure that material characteristics, load element design and strain gage meshed perfectly. The result of that effort is a typical accuracy of 0.1% of full scale capacity. The enhanced resolution mode of 1 part in 5000 provides the level of readability needed for refined weighing.

Xtreme ease

  • Exclusive SOFTKEY interface – Eliminates confusing menus for faster setup and simple operation.
  • Local gravity correction – Unit adjusts to local gravitational conditions, without recalibration.
  • Custom units of measure – User-defined units of measure mean the instrument adapts to changing requirements.
  • Wide-angle LCD – Provides improved readability over a wider viewing angle and is available with backlighting for low light conditions.
  • Battery operation – Powered by two standard C-cell batteries. Batteries are easily accessible for fast replacement.

Xtreme engineering

Building a precision instrument that can survive real-world punishment requires masterful engineering. This is where Dillon’s experience shines through. The engineers assigned to the EDx Crane Scale drew on a depth of industrial application knowledge and conducted exhaustive materials testing to achieve the highest structural integrity.

  • Superior strength and corrosion resistance – High capacity models are constructed of electroless nickel-plated aircraftquality alloy steel. Lower capacity models are anodized aircraft-quality aluminum.
  • 5:1 factor of safety – This measure of strength and safety is maintained at all capacities. Computer modeling confirms the low stress and long product life that is inherent in the EDx Crane Scale design.
  • NEMA 4X/IP55 – The EDx Crane Scale is clearly the choice for reliability in any environment – in-plant or out on the job site.
