The ESM1500 is a highly capacity single-column motorized force test stand for tension and compression measurement applications up to 1500 lb (6.7 kN). It is suitable for production and laboratory use, the ESM1500 may be used with an indicator-load cell combination or with a force gauge. 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 load cell or force gauge to move the crosshead at a dynamically variable rate of speed.
With generous travel, clearance, and depth dimensions, a wide range of tests can be performed, including break testing, cycling, limit testing to a load or distance, load-holding, 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, all protected by a password.
Controller functions are offered individually through a unique “build-your-own” configuration platform. Order any combination of functions to customize the test stand to specific requirements. Functions not ordered originally can be activated in the field.
Force and travel data can be output to a PC for graphing and analysis using MESURTMgauge software. Or, fully control the stand by a PC through a custom-written program in any language supporting ASCII communications.
