What is the difference between the EDXtreme, EDjunior, and AP Mechanical dynamometers?2022-10-26T22:08:03-05:00

The AP is a simple mechanical dynamometer with a dial face. The EDjunior is a basic digital dynamometer. The EDXtreme is a digital dynamometer with extra features such as data logging, custom units and optional remote viewing. There are some specification differences as well.

Can I record and export readings?2022-10-26T22:08:21-05:00

EDXtreme units have a serial output for interfacing with PC’s to capture real-time data.

Do any of the dynamometers offer data logging?2022-10-26T22:08:28-05:00

Yes, only the EDxtreme offers data logging.

Does the EDxtreme offer remote communication?2022-10-26T22:08:36-05:00

Yes, the “Non Radio” Version of the EDxtreme offers “wired” remote communication. The “Radio Ready” version of the EDxtreme offers both “wired” & “wireless” remote communication.

How do I know if I have the “Non Radio” or “Radio Ready” version EDxtreme?2022-10-26T22:08:45-05:00

Please feel free to contact us with the serial number of the EDxtreme and we will confirm which version you have.

Can a “Non Radio” version EDxtreme be converted to a “Radio Ready” version?2022-10-26T22:08:50-05:00

Yes. Please contact our service department for a formal quote.

Can the older version EDxtreme work with the current version Communicator?2022-10-26T22:08:57-05:00

No. both the EDxtreme and Communicator must have the same version software.

Can the older version Communicator work with the current version EDxtreme?2022-10-26T22:09:07-05:00

No. both the EDxtreme and Communicator must have the same version software.

How do I know if I have the current version EDxtreme and Communicator?2022-10-26T22:09:17-05:00

The most current version EDxtreme and Communicator will have a “red” power button.

The older version EDxtreme and Communicator will have a “yellow” power button.

Another indicator is that any EDxtreme and Communicator purchased after April 2013 has the current software.

Are calibration certificates included?2022-10-12T15:34:09-05:00

Yes, all our dynamometers come with a certificate of calibration traceable to NIST.

How often should I get my dynamometer calibrated?2022-10-12T15:34:33-05:00

It is recommended the dynamometers are calibrated annually.

Where can I send my dynamometer for service/calibration?2022-11-18T13:41:11-06:00

You can send the dynamometers to the following address:

Dillon/Quality Plus, Inc.
Attn: Bill Dillon
214 E. Kansas St. Ste 101
Liberty, MO. 64068

We ask that you complete and include the RMA Form located under the “Calibration and Repair” portion of our website with the shipment.

What is the warranty period?2022-10-12T15:35:52-05:00

On new units we offer a 24-month limited warranty on parts and workmanship. On repairs, our warranty is 30 days.

Do you offer a rental program?2024-06-19T14:29:51-05:00
Yes, we offer a rental program for Dillon dynamometers. Learn more here.
Can we use our own shackles on the Dillon dynamometers?2022-10-12T15:36:35-05:00

It depends on the unit you have. Some units require certain shackles to guarantee accuracy. Send us some info and we’ll let you know what will work with your unit, or give us a call if you need an immediate answer.

What is the difference between a dynamometer and a crane scale?2022-10-12T15:37:57-05:00

A typical crane scale is designed to measure hanging loads. A dynamometer can measure tension vertically, horizontally or anywhere in between. Add a hook to a dynamometer and you have a crane scale with versatility.

Can I proof load my dynamometer?2022-10-12T15:38:18-05:00

Yes, please refer to the specification sheet of each model regarding safe proof load.

What is the ultimate safety factor for my dynamometer?2022-10-12T15:38:38-05:00

Please refer to the specification sheet of each model.

Instead of attaching two shackles to my dynamometer, can I attach a shackle and a hook?2024-03-19T12:53:50-05:00
Yes, on capacities up to 25,000 lb.
What’s the difference between a dynamometer and a load cell?2024-03-19T12:58:19-05:00

Dillon dynamometers are also sometimes called Dillon load cells.
