The Mark 10 BG Digital Force Gauge is an advanced force measurement solution with sophisticated measurement capabilities, data outputs, computer control capabilities, and a long list of features and configurable settings. The BG can stop motorized test stand travel at user-selectable set points, and can also prevent force overload (when used with the ESM motorized test stand). Go / no go testing can also be accomplished with an optional plug-in hi / lo limits indicator.

  • Battery life: 8-10 hours per charge
  • Weight - Gauge only: 0.9 lbs (0.4 kg)
  • Environmental requirements: 40°F - 100°F [5°C - 45°C], <96% humidity (non-condensating)
  • Warranty: 3 years

The Mark 10 BG digital force gauge is compatible with all Mark-10 force measurement test stands. It is shown here in a tensile testing application, mounted to an ESM motorized test stand with optional items: digital travel display, limit switches, and wedge grips.

Mark 10 BG Digital Force Gauges Mark-10 BG force gauges are supplied in a cushioned carrying case with AC adapter, rechargeable battery, chisel, cone, v-groove, hook, flat, extension rod, user's manual, and NIST-traceable certificate of calibration

Reversible Housing - A Mark-10 Exclusive

All Mark-10 force gauges have reversible housings that allow the user to use the gauge with the load cell shaft pointing up or down, without the inconvenience of upside-down buttons and display. The housing for Mark-10 BG and Series EG gauges is reversible by separating the two halves and reassembling them with just one connector - an extra bit of engineering that will make your testing setups quicker and more efficient.

Mark 10 BG Digital Force Gauges

Optional Equipment:

  • A wide range of test stands and gripping fixtures
  • Hi / lo limits indicator - Set limit conditions for a test - the indicator will display red lights for high and low limits, and a green light to indicate passing.
  • Overload protection module - Protects the force gauge against overloads during motorized tests, adjustable from 20 - 110% of gauge's full capacity. For use with Mark-10 motorized test stands.
  • Set point cable - Stops test stand travel at programmable high and low set points for tension and compression forces. For use with Mark-10 motorized test stands.
  • Output cable - Send test data to a PC, statistical printer, or other data collector for further analysis.
