Mark-10 M5-2 Coefficient of Friction Gauge
Mark-10 M5-2-COF Gauge
(Coefficient Of Friction)

           The Mark-10 Coefficient of Friction (COF) Gauge is an essential part of a COF testing system, which is made up of a motorized test stand, COF gauge and COF fixture. The COF gauge has a capacity of 2lbF (10 N) can be used to measure a wide range of materials as well as measuring static & kinetic coefficients. It is ideal to conform to an ASTM D1894.

          The data collected can be transferred to a PC or data collectors via USB, RS-232, Mitutoyo (Digimatic), or analog outputs. The on-board memory is included which can hold up to 1,000 readings, as are statistical calculations with output to a PC. Integrated set points with indicators and outputs are ideal for pass-fail testing and for triggering external devices such as an alarm, relay, or test stand. Configurable password protects against unauthorized changes to settings.

          The M5-2-COF may also be used for a number of common tension and compression testing applications. The gauge also includes MESUR Lite data acquisition software. MESUR Lite software tabulates continuous or single point data. Data saved in the gauge's memory can also be downloaded in bulk. One-click export to Excel easily allows for further data manipulation. The user can also choose to purchase the MESUR Gauge Analysis Software to analyze the data collected in other ways (graphs, tabulate, analyze test data).
