Cooper Instruments & Systems Introduces the Model 7i Advanced Force/Torque Indicator

Warrenton, VA

Cooper Instruments Systems announced on Wednesday that they will add the new Model 7i Advanced Force/Torque Indicator to their line of Electronic Force Gauges. Cooper has been a long-time distributor of Mark-10 products, the manufacturer of the Model 7i. Cooper Instruments’ President, Rex Cooper, says “Mark-10 has introduced a great new gauge that will serve the needs of many of our customers. We’re excited to add this gauge to our product line.”

A progression of Models 3i and 5i which were introduced last year, the Model 7i offers more advanced features than its predecessors. Like the 3i and 5i, the 7i indicators work with new Plug & Test ™ technology, which allows all calibration and configuration data to be stored within the sensor’s smart connector instead of the indicator, making true interchangeability of sensors possible. Features unique to the 7i include high speed data capture - the 7i can capture and store up to 5,000 continuous data points at a rate of up to 14,000 readings per second. This unique function is ideal for capturing switch activation forces, sharp breaks, and other short-duration applications. The data acquisition rate is variable and can be slowed to also capture longer events, such as structure relaxation. The 7i also allows for integration of a  footswitch / automation system to improve testing ergonomics and efficiency; no need for multiple key presses. Up to three steps may be programmed for a single footswitch activation.

Cooper Instruments & Systems is a worldwide leading supplier of force and pressure measurement instrumentation, sensor systems and custom calibration services. Since opening for business in 1988, their products and systems have been used extensively around the globe.
