The EDXtreme’s highly refined design achieves a 5:1 minimum safety factor and boasts the highest accuracy and capacity of any Dillon dynamometer. With extreme precision, versatility and intelligence, the EDXtreme is the right choice if you need complete confidence in the strength and accuracy of your force measurement tools to ensure safety.
The EDXtreme is extremely resilient and adaptable to a variety of worksite environments, and is the best dynamometer option for shock loading because of its high peak capture rate. You can also choose to purchase a remote display to communicate with the EDXtreme at a distance.

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?chuzles2022-10-26T22:08:21-05:00
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?chuzles2022-10-12T15:37:57-05:00
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.

Advantages of the EDXtreme Dynamometer
Accuracy and Capacity
The EDXtreme is twice as accurate as the EDjunior and 5 times as accurate as the AP Mechanical. It also has the highest capacity of any Dillon dynamometer, going up to 550,000 lbs. Its measurements are extremely precise, with an “enhanced” resolution option enabling one-pound resolution counts.
The EDXtreme is the only dynamometer that allows for real-time data logging. By connecting your dynamometer to a computer, you can track and store all measurements, and test how tensions change over time.
You can sync your EDXtreme dynamometer with a wired or wireless remote display, allowing you to see measurements and program the unit at distances of up to 600 feet. This makes the EDXtreme the best choice for worksites where your dynamometer will be installed at great heights or distances.
