Series-3 Digital Force Gauge


Made in the USA

The Basic Series-3 Digital Force Gauges are developed for a wide range of applications.
With its compact design the Series-3 features a sampling rate of 2.000 Hz, supports 3 units of measurement (depending on the version) and can be connected to a PC via a USB connection.

The Series-3 Digital Force Gauges come in a 0,5 N to 2500 N range divided in 11 steps.

The backlit LCD display shows all the setting and current measurement information.
Series-3 Force Gauges can be used in combination with a wide range of test stands and gripping fixtures.

The Digital Mark-10 Series Force Gauge range is available in a variation of 5 gauges with each gauge type available in a scale of force ranges. Each type of gauge has its own specifications, the table below shows the main specifications of each gauge type.
All gauges types are equipped with a rechargeable battery, a back lit display and reversible aluminum housing.
The Series-# Digital Force Gauges are designed to be used for measuring tension and compression forces.

All gauges except for the Series-2 come with MESUR® Lite data acquisition software.
MESUR® Lite tabulates continuous or single point data. One-click export to Excel allows for further data manipulation.

Mark-10 Digital Force Gauges are versatile instruments, in general they are combined with additional equipment to a purposely build system to perform the required tasks.

We are happy to assist you in finding the most suitable configuration for your needs. Please contact us for more information.
