Get the most precise measurements when you need them with the Mark-10 Force Gauge Series 5. Advanced digital force gauges are designed for tension and compression force testing in various applications across virtually every industry.
The Series 5 Force Gauges feature an industry-leading sampling rate of 7,000 Hz, producing accurate results even for quick-action tests. The gauge boasts an accuracy is 0.1% of full scale 1 digit, and its resolution is 1/5000. The backlit LCD displays graphics in large, easy-to-read characters, while the simple menu navigation allows for quick access to the gauge's features and customizable parameters. Data can be quickly transferred to a PC or other data collector via USB, RS-232, Mitutoyo (Digimatic), or analog outputs.
- Makes it possible for the user to easily adjust the gauge to suit their specific needs with 5 units of measurement to choose from
- Large, backlit LCD, graphic display; peak readings and set points are consistently displayed
- MESUR Lite data acquisition software is included with Series 5 gauges
- High-speed 7,000 Hz sampling rate
