The force gauges feature a sampling rate of 2,000 Hz, large, backlit graphic display, and simple, intuitive menu structure for quick access to the gauges’ features and configurable parameters. Data output is possible via USB for further analysis on a PC. Integrated set points with indicators are ideal for pass-fail testing. The gauges are overload protected to 150% of capacity, and an analog load bar is shown on the display to help the user identify when an overload condition is imminent.
An ergonomic, compact design allows for hand-held use or mounted to a test stand or fixture for more sophisticated testing requirements. The housing may be reversed in order for the load cell shaft to be oriented up or down, while the display and buttons remain upright. With overall dimensions of only 2.5 x 3.9 x 1.5 in., Series 3 is compact enough to address space constraints in various settings.
Series 3 force gauges include Mark-10’s MESURM Lite basic data collection software for data tabulation and exporting. The gauges are supplied in a cushioned carrying case with AC adapter, rechargeable battery, set of common attachments, USB cable, resource CD, certificate of calibration, and user’s guide. The gauges are compatible with Mark-10 test stands, grips, and software.
