Plug & Test™ Adapter Model PTA

Connect common strain gage-based load cells, force sensors, and torque sensors to Mark-10 indicators with this user-configurable adapter and software.

Sensor capacity and resolutions may be programmed via an included software utility, which includes a library of common force capacities from 0.12 to 750,000 lbF (0.5 N to 4,000 kN), and torque capacities from 10 ozFin to 40,000 lbFft (7 Ncm to 57,000 Nm). An identification number may be programmed, which is displayed upon indicator power-up or the indicator's Information screen.

Through Plug & Test™ technology, all configuration and calibration information is saved within the adapter. This flexibility allows for interchangeability between multiple sensors with Mark-10 indicators.

  • Screw terminal block allows for easy connection of sensor wires
  • Software configuration utility is included, for easy programming of sensor capacity, resolution, and identification number
  • Program the adapter via USB or RS-232 through the indicator
  • Supplied with a strain relief, user-writeable identification label, and Resource CD with software
Sensor Requirements:
  • Type: Full bridge
  • Resistance: 300 - 1000 ohms
  • Sensitivity: 1-3 mV/V
 
Indicator Requirements:
  • Mark-10 indicator with firmware version 1.0.9 or later*
