Plug and Test Force or Torque Indicators and SensorsMark-10 introduces their all new Models 5i and 3i digital force/torque indicators with family of interchangeable remote force and torque sensors. With exclusive Plug & TestTM technology, all calibration and configuration data is saved within the sensors’ smart connectors, not the indicator, allowing for true interchangeability. Force sensors are available in capacities up to 10,000 lbF (50 kN), and torque sensors are available in capacities up to 5,000 lbFin (550 Nm).

The indicators feature fast sampling rates of up to 7,000 Hz, producing accurate results even for quick-action tests. Large, backlit graphic LCDs display large, legible characters, while the simple menu navigation allows for quick access to the indicators’ many features and configurable parameters. Data can be transferred to a PC or data collectors via available USB, RS-232, Mitutoyo (Digimatic), or analog outputs.

On-board data memory for up to 1,000 readings is included in the Model 5i, as are statistical calculations with output to a PC. Integrated set points with indicators and available outputs are ideal for pass-fail testing and for triggering external devices such as an alarm, relay, or test stand. An analog load bar is shown on the display for graphical representation of applied force or torque.

The 5i’s averaging mode addresses the need to record the average load over time, while external trigger mode makes switch activation testing simple and accurate. The 5i also features sensor password protection for preventing the use of an unauthorized sensor.

Both indicators include MESURTM Lite basic data acquisition software, a USB cable, cushioned carrying case, AC adapter, and certificate of calibration.
