ESM303 Mark-10 Motorized Test Stand


The ESM303 Motorized Digital Test Stand is a highly configurable single-column force tester for tension and compression measurement applications up to 1.5 kN (300 lbf), with a rugged design suitable for laboratory and production environments. Sample setup and fine positioning are a breeze with available Follow Me 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 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. Save up to 50 profiles to accommodate a range of test methods. Collect force and travel data, plot and analyze the results, and control test stand motion via PC-based MESUR®gauge Plus software. Or, fully control the stand by a PC through a custom-written program in any language supporting ASCII communications.

Made in the USA and comes with a three year limited manufacturer’s warranty.
