The ESM1500S force test stand is new in the ESM Serie and is the smaller equivalent of our renowned ESM1500. It combines the maximum capicty of 6.7 kN (1500 lbF) of the ESM1500 with the compact size of the also new ESM750S. The ESM 1500S offers you a 360 mm travel combined with a maximal capacity of 6.7 kN.
Due to its generous travel and clearance, the ESM1500S is suitable for a variety of applications such as break testing, cycling, limit testing to a load or distance, loadholding, elongation testing, tensile testing, compression testing, and more in both Quality Management as well as laboratory test environments. The test stand can be used with a mount for force gauges or with a separate load cell and a corresponding force indicator.
Thanks to the the optional FollowMe™ option, the test stand allows for an easy, hassle free setup, just simply using your hand as a guide: the test stand follows your hand movement through push and pull pressure on the load to move the crosshead at a dynamically variable speed. The ESM1500S stand can alternatively also be set up with the help of the side-mounted, angle-adjustable control panel.
With the right grips and accessories, the force stand is suitable for a wide variety of test applications, such as fracture tests, determination of maximum load or distance, elongation tests and all pressure and tensile tests. The extensive configuration menu can be protected with a password and offers different setting options depending on the ordered functionality such as, for example, the definition of measuring cycles, measuring speed and force and distance limits. When the device is delivered, all modular options are activated free of charge for the first 160 operating hours and can, if necessary, also be added afterwards.
The ESM1500S is delivered with MESUR™Gauge Lite Software and allows for exportation of measuring data to a PC or Excel file. The optional MESUR™Gauge or MESUR™Gauge Plus Software offer further functions and data analysis tools. In addition to the free available MESUR™Gauge Lite, the MESUR™Gauge Plus Software can be tested CE for 90 days.
The adjustable-angle control unit is comprised of a robust aluminum housing, perfect for industrial production environments. It's easy to use with many optional additional functions such as the FollowMe function. Since the control unit is removable, it is also suitable for remote control or for table mounting with an optional mounting kit.
The measuring path can be adjusted by upper and lower travel limiters and thus stops the test bench with a repeatability of 0.025 mm.
Adjustable mounting plate for attaching handles & accessories
The mounting plate can be repositioned for proper alignment on the X and Y axis. The mounting plate is provided with a matrix of threaded holes for mounting handles and accessories.
All the electronics are installed in a single panel, which is easy to remove for updates and maintenance.
The FollowMe ™ feature allows you to control the strength level manually. By applying pressure to the force gauge shaft or load cell, the crosshead positions itself at different rates of speed according to the applied pressure. Its high adaptability makes it suitable for quick positioning as well as for fine tuning.
To take advantage of the full range of features of your dynamometer, you need a Series 5 or 7 force gauge that is capable of both, force versus time and force versus displacement measurements combined with a data interface.
Handles and pull-out handle adapter
A wide range of different holders, clamps and printing plates, etc. allowing the test bench to be adapted to almost any test situation.
Indicator / measuring cell adapter
To mount a series 5i or 7i display and to mount a R01 or R03 force sensor.
MESUR MESURgauge is a measuring and analysis software
Captures the data available via the USB port of the ESM1500S, enabling display of the data in graphical and tabular formats, as well as offering conversion into statistics and other reporting and output tools.
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.
|• Series 7 or 5 gauge or indicator
Travel is indicated on the control unit display, with out via USB. An internal scale utilizing Renishaw technology produces significantly higher accuracy than with conventional rotary encoder-base designs. Backlash and nonlinearity are virtually eliminated.
• Series 7 or 5 gauge or indicator
• Can not be added in field
The ESM1500S may be fully controlled by a PC through a custom-written program in any language supporting ASCII communications.
• Series 7 or 5 gauge or indicator
• SF009 Travel indication
|Programmable travel limits||SF011||
The stand stops at or cycles between programmable upper and lower travel distances.
|• SF009 Travel indication|
|Overload protection||SF012||Protects a force sensor or force gauge against overload. Set the desired percentage of full scale of the gauge. Adjustable analoge output voltage setting allows the stand to interface with virtually any gauge with analog output.||• Series 7 or 5 gauge or indicator|
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. Selectable reversing at force set point
• Reversing at force set point: Series 7 or 5 gauge or indicator
• Reversing at travel limit: SF011 programmable travel limits option
• Reversing at break: SF019 break detection option
|Cycling / dwell time||SF014||
Same function 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.
|• Same as auto return, at the same speed in each direction. Add SF016 for independet up and down speeds|
|Independent Up and Down speeds||SF016||Individually configure speeds for the up and down directions||-|
|Low speed extension||SF017||Extends the standard speed range down to 0,02 mm/min.||-|
|High speed extension||SF018-1||Extends the max speed to 1,525 mm/min.||-|
Crosshead stops at a programmable drop in force
|• Series 7 or 5 gauge or indicator|
Dynamically adjusts the crosshead position to maintain a specified load for an indefinite or specified period of time.
|• Series 7 or 5 gauge or indicator
• For a specified dwell time SF014 is required
|Preload / sample touch||SF021||Stops the corsshead and/or zeroes the travel display at an initial preload. Useful in tensile, compression, spring, elongation, and other applications. Preload is progammable as a percentage of force gauge/load cell full scale. Three modes: (1) stop, (2) stop and zero and (3) zero without stopping.||• Series 7 or 5 gauge or indicator|
Save and recall sets of test parameters, such as speeds, travel limits, preload, etc. Maximum of 50 profiles may be stored.
