Description

ESM1500 Test Stand

ESM1500 Test Stand

The Mark-10 ESM1500 and ESM750 single-column force testers (test stand) are highly configurable solutions for tension and compression measurement applications, with capacities of 750 to 1,500 lbF

(6.7 kN) and 750 lbF (3.4 kN), respectively. With generous travel and clearance, they are suitable for 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 intuitive menu with selectable test parameters, such as speed, number of cycles, etc. Up to 50 profiles may be saved and password protected. Crosshead positioning for sample setup is a breeze with available FollowMe®. Using your hand as your guide, push and pull on the load to move the crosshead at a dynamically variable speed.
The stands feature a unique modular controller function platform. Functions such as travel measurement, cycling, etc. are offered individually, accommodating a wide range of budgets and applications.

Collect force and travel data, plot and analyze results, and control test stand motion via MESUR®gauge software. Or, fully control the stand by a PC through a custom application.

MESURgauge Software

MESURgauge Software

Features

  • Broad force range and clearance dimensions
  • Compatible with load cells and force gauges
  • USB output of force vs. time or force vs. distance
  • Adjustable, removal control panel with intuitive menu navigation
  • Unique modular function platform – select functions as required for the application
  • Password protection of test parameters
  • Stepper motor-driven, producing smooth and quiet operation with no speed variation under load
  • Compact footprint, suitable for crowded workbenches
  • Most electronics are housed in an integrated removable enclosure, easily accessed for service

Optional Functions

  • FollowMe™ force-based positioning

    ESM1500 Follow Me Function

    • Crosshead movement responds to manually pushing or pulling on the force gauge shaft or load cell. Increasing force produces greater speeds. Ideal for setups and quick positioning.
  • Travel indication
    • Travel is indicated on the control unit display, with output via USB. An internal scale utilizing Renishaw technology produces significantly higher accuracy than with conventional rotary encoder-based designs. Backlash and nonlinearity are virtually eliminated.
  • Computer control
    • The ESM1500 may be fully controlled by a PC through a custom-written program in any language supporting ASCII communications. Also responds to the legacy Chatillon TCD command set and legacy Nexygen TCD software (not available from Mark-10).
      This option is not required for MESUR™gauge Plus software.
  • Programmable travel limits
    • The stand stops at or cycles between programmable upper and lower travel distances.
  • Overload protection
    • Protects a force sensor or force gauge against overload. Program the desired percentage of full scale of the gauge. Adjustable analog output voltage setting allows the stand to interface with virtually any gauge with analog output.
  • Auto return
    • The crosshead moves to a limit switch, force set point, travel position, or break, then stops and reverses direction at full speed to the other limit.
  • Cycling / dwell time
    • Same as auto-return, but with the ability to program up to 100,000 cycles. Programmable dwell time for upper and lower limits (set independently) can be set up for up to 10,000 seconds.
  • Independant Up and Down speeds
    • Individually configure speeds for the up and down directions.
  • Low speed extension
    • Extends the standard speed range down to 0.001 in/min [0.02 mm/min].

      ESM750/ESM1500 Controller

  • High speed extension
    • Extends the standard speed range up to 90 in/min [2,300 mm/min].
  • Break detection
    • Crosshead stops at a sudden drop in force. Programmable percentage of peak force.
  • Loadholding
    • Dynamically adjusts the crosshead position to maintain a programmed load for an indefinite or specified period of time.
  • Preload / sample touch
    • Stops the crosshead and/or zeroes the travel display at an initial preload – useful in tensile, compression, spring, elongation, and other applications. Preload is programmable as a percentage of force gauge/load cell full scale. Three modes: (1) stop, (2) stop and zero, and (3) zero without stopping.
  • Profiles
    • Save and recall sets of test parameters, such as speeds, travel limits, preload, etc. Maximum of 50 profiles may be stored.
  • Complete options package
    • Includes all functions listed above.
