The Mark-10 Force Gauge Series 5 brings a new level of accuracy and control to the world of force gauges. Ease-of-use and functionality are key and this digital force gauge moves seamlessly through applications for a wide array of industries thanks to the forethought and expertise built into its very design. On-board data memory for up to 1,000 readings is included, as are statistical calculations and output to a PC. Integrated set points with indicators are ideal for pass-fail testing and for triggering external devices such as an alarm, relay, or test stand. The gauges are overload protected to 150% of capacity, and an analog load bar is shown on the display for graphical representation of applied force.

The Mark-10 Force Gauge Series 5's averaging mode addresses the need to record the average force over time, useful in applications such as peel testing; while the external trigger mode makes switch activation testing simple and accurate. An ergonomic, reversible aluminum design allows for hand held use or test stand mounting for more sophisticated testing needs. Also, these Series 5 Force Gauges include MESUR Lite data acquisition software. MESUR Lite tabulates continuous or single point data from Series 5 and 4 gauges. Data saved in the gauge's memory can also be downloaded in bulk. One-click export to Excel easily allows for further data manipulation with your convenience in mind.

Overall, the Mark-10 Force Gauge Series 5 makes a great choice for the user looking for the freedom to move between multiple tasks with very little effort.
