Optional Accessories

ESM001, ESM004

ESM001 ESM004 Digital Travel Indicator

Digital travel display

6" [150 mm] and 12" [300 mm] travel models available, 0.0005" [0.01 mm] resolution, 0.001" [0.03 mm] accuracy, SPC output for automated data collection. For output of travel data to a PC, the following items are required: 09-1066 cable and MRS100A communication adapter. Note: continuous data output rate is limited to 2 Hz.




Column extension

A spacer is supplied between the base and the column, increasing clearance between the force gauge and base (does not increase travel distance). Available in 6", 12", and 24", and custom lengths.

Series 2, 3, 4, 5, 7

Digital force gauges

Mark-10 force gauges may be handheld or used with a force test stand and gripping fixtures to create a complete testing solution. Usually with this test stand customers choose a Series 3 or 5. Other Mark-10 gauge options are available here.

Mesurgauge software
Tabulates and plots load vs. time or load vs. travel. Also calculates statistics, exports to Excel, and more.
Mitutoyo Cable
*MRS100A Mitutoyo to RS-232 converter
*RSU100 RS-232 to USB converter

 *If the ESM001 or ESM004 digital travel display option is ordered and connection to a PC is desired, these connection cables are required. 



    ES30 Mark-10 Manual Test Stand Dimensional Drawing


    *Because load cell deflection and system deflection are present and not automatically compensated for, this equipment is recommended for applications requiring at least 0.2 in [5 mm] of travel distance.
