Mark-10 M3-012 Series 3 Digital Force Gage, 0.12 IbF (50 gF / 0.5 N)


Designed for tension and compression force testing, the M3-012 can handle applications up to 0.12 IbF (0.5N). Series 3 offers an extensive range of options, including a sampling rate of 2,000 Hz, which provides accurate results under various test conditions.

Product Description

The Mark-10 M3-012 Series 3 Digital Force Gage is a high-quality tool for measuring the force of an applied load. Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, yet powerful enough for industrial and laboratory applications.

It has an overload protection capacity of 200% and set point indicators for pass-fail testing. Additionally, the M3-012 displays the graphical representation of the applied force on a large, backlit LCD screen. While its ergonomic, aluminum housing makes it easy to use this instrument by hand or with a test stand.

What’s more is its compatibility with other Mark-10 equipment, such as grips and software. It includes MESUR Lite data acquisition software, so you can easily tabulate data from your tests and export it directly into Excel.

Above all, this product includes a 3-year warranty from Mark-10 for added protection.
