At CSC Force Measurement, we carry a wide range of force measurement equipment and accessories to support the needs and requirements of our customers. Tension force sensors, compression force sensors, and other interchangeable sensors and indicators are essential to the success of many different businesses across multiple industries. Mark-10 load cells are the perfect choice for our clients who use quality Mark-10 equipment, including motorized test stands and digital force gauges. In particular, the Mark-10 Series FS06 tension and compression force sensors have capacities that range from as small as 0.12 lbF on up to 500 lbF and are designed to mount directly to the crossheads of models F105, F305, F505, and F505H test frames.
Plug & Test Technology
One of the advantages associated with choosing the quality Mark-10 load cells for your force measurement needs is Plug & Test technology. With this feature, all of the configuration and calibration data of these interchangeable sensors and indicators is saved within the sensor itself. This allows for the tension force sensors to be calibrated on the Mark-10 test frame or off-site with an indicator using an optional adapter. The FS05 tension and compression force sensors are part of the family of Mark-10 Plug & Test family of interchangeable sensors and indicators. Operators can use these sensors to measure tension and compression force.
To ensure accurate and repeatable results, an NIST-traceable certificate of calibration with data is included when you purchase these FS05 Mark-10 load cells through CSC Force Measurement. We can also supply an ISO17025 calibration certificate upon request. Mark-10 provides a three-year warranty for their tension force sensors, and CSC Force Measurement offers ongoing support and services for as long as you own the device. Accuracy is within +/- 0.1% of full scale plus indicator or test frame. The safety overload for the FS05 sensors is 150% of full scale. Easy to operate and light in weight for multiple uses, the force sensors weigh between 1.9 and 3.0 pounds, depending on the capacity that is chosen.
When you purchase these tension force sensors from CSC Force Measurement, there are a few things that come with the product. In addition, our team can assist you in finding the best motorized test stands, accessories, and optional equipment to help you achieve your force measurement testing goals for accurate and repeatable results. Some of the items that come with the Mark-10 FS05 Series tension and compression force sensors include an extension rod, cone, chisel, V-groove, flat, and hook. If you purchase the FS05-50 to FS05-500 sensors, a coupling is also included to ensure compatibility and proper use of the Mark-10 load cells with your test stand.
In addition to everything that comes with the Mark-10 load cells and test stands, CSC Force Measurement can also provide customers with necessary cables and adapters to help them achieve their goals. The Adapter FS05 Sensor (part AC1083) is a PTAF adapter to Plug & Test connector, which can be used with F755, F775S, F1505, and F1505S test frames. It features a 10-inch (250 mm) cable and can be purchased along with the interchangeable sensors and indicators or afterward, as necessary. An extension cable can also be purchased, which features a length of 48-inches or 1220 mm. It is designed to facilitate an easier connection to the Mark-10 Model M5I or M7I indicators for better calibration.
