Portable Case Dedicated portable case is furnished with NDIS-connector, Power-SW, Power-Cable in the rear side, and in case when this option is required to be delivered to the customer together with various transducers of our manufacture at the same time, we shall be glad to install the calibration and setting values into the DS-6200 in accordance with the transducers to be coupled.

Brief description of Portable Case


This option is prepared as a portable measuring device in compliance with increasing demands in recent days for a control equipment to be used inside actual installations for the control of various transducers including load cells, pressure transducers, and so on. In case when this option is required to be delivered to the customer together with various transducers of our manufacture at the same time, we shall be glad to make a special service in writing down calibration and setting values of the DS-6200 in accordance with sensitivity and rated values of the transducers to be coupled. However, note that a calibration certificate as the combined system and a traceability certificate if needed would have to be paid for. This equipment is of a simple layout only having at its rear side an NDIS Standard Connector (Receptacle), Power Cable (directly drawn out from the system), Power Switch and vacant panel for the optional device. You can start measurements immediately after one touch connection has been made with a transducer to be coupled.
