Series 7 professional digital force gauges are designed with a number of sophisticated features for the most demanding tension and compression measurement applications, up to 500 lbF (2500 N). The gauges feature ±0.1% accuracy and a blazingly fast, industry-leading sampling rate of 14,000 Hz, producing reliable results for extremely quick-action tests.
Series 7 gauges include all the functions of Series 5 gauges, with several additional features, including high speed continuous data capture and storage, with memory for up to 5,000 readings at an acquisition rate of up to 14,000 Hz. The gauges also feature programmable footswitch sequencing, break detection, and 1st / 2nd peak detection. Series 7 includes a coefficient of friction unit of measurement and user-defined unit of measurement. For productivity enhancement, the gauges also feature automatic data output, data storage, and zero functions upon the completion of the following events: break detection, averaging, external trigger, and 1st / 2nd peak detection.
Series 7 force gauges are directly compatible with Mark-10 test stands, including the ESM301, to permit functions such as break testing, tensile testing, compression testing, dynamic load holding, PC control capability, and many other applications.

Focus on Engineering: Specialized Gauge Functions
Series 7 gauges feature several functions typically found in more complex instruments, such as materials testers, data acquisition systems, and PLCs. The following unique features are highlighted:
High Speed Data Capture & Storage
Series 7 can capture and store up to 5,000 continuous data points at a rate of up to 14,000 readings per second. This unique function is ideal for measuring switch activation forces, sharp breaks, and other short-duration applications. Configurable start and stop triggers are provided. The data acquisition rate is variable and can be slowed to also capture longer events, such as structure relaxation, material expansion, and others
Data from the storage buffer can be exported to data collection software such as MESURTMgauge for further analysis and graphing. Using a Series 7 gauge could replace cumbersome and expensive data acquisition hardware and software.
Footswitch Command String
Integrate your footswitch / automation system with a Series 7 gauge to improve testing ergonomics and efficiency; no need for multiple key presses. Up to three steps may be programmed for a single footswitch activation.
Select from several commands, including request peak reading, zero the display, save to memory, and others. Time delays can be inserted between each step.
Automatic Data Output / Save / Zero / I/O Pin Toggle
Upon completion of several event types, the Series 7 can perform the following productivity-enhancing functions
Automatically save the peak reading to memory
Transmit the peak reading via USB, RS-232, or Mitutoyo output
Zero the display
Toggle an I/O pin, for example to stop movement of an ESM301/ESM301L test stand.
Applicable events include
Sample break detection (also applicable to samples which slip, click, or otherwise reach a peak, then fall).
Completion of an averaging sequence
External trigger (ex. switch activation).
1st / 2nd peak capture (ex. tensile testing).
User-defined Unit of Measurement
Series 7 gauges display 6 standard units of measurement. One additional user-defined unit is provided for unique applications. A base unit is specified, along with a multiplier, and 5-character name. Typical applications
To measure the torque produced by pressing on a lever in a mechanical assembly, configure the multiplier based on the length of the lever, thereby converting a unit such as N into Ncm
To measure the pressure produced by a circular compression plate on a foam sample, configure the multiplier based on the area of the plate, thereby converting a unit such as lbF into psi.
AC or rechargeable battery. Multi-step low battery indicator is displayed, gauge shuts off automatically when power is too low

Mark-10 15-1004 MESURGauge Data Collection Software more info Price: $470.25 In Stock
We are pleased to introduce Mark-10 MESURgauge software, a measuring and analysis program designed to expand the functionality of Mark-10 force and torque measuring instruments.
Ability to display both load and travel data The ability of MESURgauge to display load and travel data sets it apart from other basic force measurement programs. If the customer wishes to plot a graph of load vs. travel, common for such applications as tensile testing and spring testing, MESURgauge is a compelling alternative to more expensive and complex material testing programs.
Compatibility with competitors gauges Any force or torque gauge with RS-232 data output is compatible with Mark-10 MESURgauge software. Simply enter in the appropriate communication protocols of the gauge into the program.
Simulated data makes evaluation a breeze Built-in simulated data allows the customer to evaluate the program with data which can be graphed, analyzed, and manipulated just like real test data. A gauge and cable are not necessary.
Mark-10 MESURgauge is a measuring and analysis program designed to expand the functionality of force and torque measuring instruments. Mark-10 MESURgaugeSoftware captures readings from any force or torque gauge with RS-232 output and displays data in tabular and graphical formats. Load data can be graphed versus time or distance, particularly useful for such applications as spring testing and tensile testing.
Mark-10 MESURgaugeSoftware includes a set of tools to analyze test results, including statistical calculations, quick data export to Microsoft Excel, customizable reports, pass/fail indicators, and many others. Test setups and sequences are customizable and can be saved and recalled. The user can program test start and stop conditions, including load, time, distance, and sample break.
Additional features in Mark-10 MESURgaugeSoftware include a large display screen for real time load and travel data and a utility to configure Mark-10 gauges from a PC. Built-in simulated data generation allows Mark-10 MESURgaugeSoftware to be evaluated without a gauge.
