Series 5 force gauges from Mark-10 are designed for tension and compression force testing, with capacities from 0.12 lb to 2,000 lbF (0.5 N to 10 kN). Series 5 force gauges feature an industry leading sampling rate of 7,000 Hz, producing accurate results even for quick-action tests. Accuracy is ±0.1% of full scale, and resolution is 1/5000. Data can be transferred to a PC or other data collector via USB, RS-232, Mitutoyo (Digimatic), or analog outputs. Series 5 force gauges feature on board data memory for up to 1,000 readings, and integrated set points for pass-fail testing. The Series 5’s averaging mode addresses the need to record the average force over time, useful in applications such as peel testing, while external trigger mode makes switch activation testing simple and accurate.

The gauges include MESUR™ Lite data acquisition software. MESUR™ Lite tabulates continuous or single point data. One-click export to Excel allows for further data manipulation.
