DynX devices are shipped to customers in a convenient Carrying Case enclosing the following items:

 

1 -  DynX device labeled with its manufacturing serial number

1 -  Certificate of Calibration

2 -  Grip Extenders, one of which is installed on the rear handle of the DynX

1 -  PC interface cable

1 -  User Guide (compressed version)

1 -  9V battery

A barcode on the Case identifies the DynX serial number.

 

DynX devices are ruggedly designed to withstand normal use in a laboratory, clinical or home environment.  The device should not be exposed to water or extreme heat.  There are no moving mechanical components subject to wear.  Two electronic load-cell beams detect applied forces applied to the front handle, summing these detected forces to display the total force on the handle.  Each load cell has a design limit of 100 Lb  (45.5Kg) for a sum total of 200 Lb (91Kg).  Significantly exceeding this design limit may permanently damage the DynX.  Detailed information on care and handling is provided in the User Guide.

 

The 9V battery has a life typically in the range of 1 year with normal use.  A “Low Battery” warning is provided when the battery needs replaced.
