Professional Force Indicator

The Mark-10 7i professional digital force/torque indicator is designed to work with a wide range of Mark-10 remote force and torque sensors.
Ships from Canada (Brampton, Great Toronto Area, Ontario)

Accredited ISO 17025 calibration certificate for these 7i Professional Force Indicator force tools is be available on request (for an extra charge). Why Calibrate?

Description

With exclusive Plug & Test™ technology, all calibration and configuration data is saved within the sensor’s smart connector, not the indicator, allowing for true interchangeability. In addition, all sensors are fully compatible with other Mark-10 indicators. For productivity enhancement, the indicator also features automatic data output, data storage, and zeroing functions upon the completion of break detection, averaging, external trigger, and 1st / 2nd peak detection.

This Mark-10 Indicator (model 7i) works with one of the Mark-10 interchangeable force and torque sensors through Plug & TestTM technology. For a complete gage, you can choose Mark-10 Professional Digital Force Gauges Series 7, designed for tension and compression force testing in numerous applications from 0.12 lbF (0.5N) to 500 lbF (2500 N).

The 7i interfaces with Mark-10 motorized test stands to permit functions such as break testing, dynamic load holding, PC control capability, and more. The included MESUR™ Lite data acquisition software tabulates continuous or single point data. Data saved in the indicator’s memory can also be downloaded in bulk. One-click export to Excel easily allows for further data manipulation.

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 includes MESUR™ Lite data acquisition software. MESUR™ Lite tabulates continuous or single point data. Data saved in the indicator’s memory can also be downloaded in bulk. One-click export to Excel easily allows for further data manipulation.

On-board data memory for up to 1,000 readings is included, as are statistical calculations with output to a PC. Integrated set points with indicators and 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.

Features

  • Sample break detection with auto functions, including stopping movement of a Mark-10 motorized test stand
  • Automatic output / data storage / zeroing upon various event completions
  • 1st / 2nd peak detection
  • 5 units of measurement, plus Coefficient of Friction and user-defined unit with configurable name
  • Programmable footswitch command string
  • Programmable set points, with indicators and outputs
  • Averaging mode - calculates average readings over time
  • External trigger mode - for switch contact testing or remotely stopping display update
  • Password protection, configurable for individual keys and calibration

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.

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 capturing 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 MESUR™gauge 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.
