*1  These are the specifications for International model. Note that the available units are different from Japanese domestic model and international one. kN is available at 1000N, mN and gf is available at 2N and 5N ranges.
*2  You cannot use Continuous peak mode when the measurement does not reach 10% of the force gauge’s capacity. Instead, use Peak mode. Continuous peak mode could not fit enough for measurement with a shock such as break tests. Contact us for further details.
*3  The weight is slightly different by the models.
*4  For further information, refer to “Accessory attachments” in “Models for DSV series force gauges” below.
