Mark-10 BG Series Premium Force Gauges

item#: MKT023

The Mark-10 Series BG Digital Force Gauge is an advanced force measurement solution with sophisticated measurement capabilities, data outputs, computer control capabilities and a long list of features and configurable settings. The Mark-10 BG can stop motorized test stand travel at user-selectable set points, and it can also prevent force overload when used with the ESM motorized test stand. Go/no go testing can also be accomplished with an optional plug-in hi/lo limits indicator. Optional MESURgauge software can be used to tabulate, graph and analyze your data.

Optional Equipment

  • A wide range of test stands and gripping fixtures
  • MESURgauge Software - tabulates and plots load vs. time or load vs. travel; it also calculates statistics, exports to Excel and more
  • Output cables - Send test data to a PC, statistical printer or other data collector for further analysis
  • RS-232 to USB adapter - Converts RS-232 to USB output and includes USB cable and installation CD
  • Set point cable - Stops test stand travel at programmable high and low set points for tension and compression forces for use with Mark-10 motorized test stands
  • Hi / lo limits indicator - Set limit conditions for a test; the indicator will display red lights for high and low limits and a green light to indicate passing
  • Overload protection module - Protects the force gauge against overloads during motorized tests, adjustable from 20 - 110% of gauge's full capacity for use with Mark-10 motorized test stands

Reversible Housing: A Mark-10 Exclusive

All Mark-10 force gauges have reversible housings that allow the user to use the gauge with the load cell shaft pointing up or down without the inconvenience of upside-down buttons and display. The housing for Series BG gauges is reversible by separating the two halves and reassembling them with just one connector. An extra bit of engineering that will make your testing setups quicker and more efficient.
