Horizontal Motorized Test Stand
The ESM303 is a highly configurable single-column force tester for tension and compression measurement. Applications up to 300 lbF [1.5 kN], with a rugged design suitable for laboratory and production environments. Sample setup and fine positioning are a breeze with available FollowMe™ force-based positioning. Using your hand as your guide, push and pull on the force gauge or load cell to move the crosshead at a variable rate of speed.
With generous travel, clearance, and depth dimensions, a wide range of tests can be performed. Tests include break testing, cycling, limit testing to a load or distance, loadholding, elongation testing, tensile testing, compression testing, and more. Satisfy various test methods through an easy-to-use menu, allowing the configuration of test speed, force and distance limits, cycling, preload, and many other functions. Save up to 50 profiles to accommodate a range of test methods with complete password protection.
When the ESM303’s clearance is insufficient for the application its modular mechanical design allows for single and double column extensions. Modularity extends to the controller functions as well. Individual functions may be purchased upfront or enabled in the field through an activation code. This a-la-carte platform allows for custom configuration as appropriate for the application and budget.
Force and travel data can be output to a PC for graphing and analysis using MESUR™gauge software. If you would rather fully control the stand by a PC? This can be done through a custom-written program with ASCII communication.
