ESM303 Motorized Teststand with PC Control


Made in the USAThe ESM303 is a highly configurable single-column force tester for tension and compression measurement applications up to 1.5 kN, with a rugged design suitable for laboratory and production environments.

The ESM303 is stepper motor-driven, producing smooth and quiet operation with no speed variation under load

The ESM303 is easy to adjust for every application.
When the standard 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.

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, loadholding, elongation testing, tensile testing, compression testing, and more.

Individual functions, such as travel measurement, cycling, loadholding, etc., may be purchased either 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.

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.

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.

Force and travel data can be output to a PC for graphing and analysis using MESUR™gauge software. Or, fully control the stand by a PC through a custom-written program with ASCII communication.

Optional Controller Features
Feature Part No. Description Requirements
FollowMe AF008 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 with load cell.
09-1214 interface cable
Travel indication AF009 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. Field hardware installation required.
If data output to a PC is required, add 09-1214 and 09-1158 cables, and a Series 7 or 5 gauge or indicator with load cell.
Computer control AF010 The ESM303 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 Checkline). Series 5 or 7 force gauge
AF009 travel indication
AF011 programmable travel set points
09-1214 interface cable
09-1158 USB output cable
Programmable travel limits AF011 The stand stops at or cycles between programmable upper and lower travel distances. AF009 travel indication option
Overload protection AF012 Protects a force gauge or force sensor against overload. Program the desired percentage of full scale of the gauge. Adjustable analog voltage setting allows the stand to interface with virtually any gauge with analog output. Series 7 or 5 gauge or indicator with load cell
09-1214 interface cable
Auto Return AF013 The crosshead moves to a limit switch, force set point, travel position, or break, then stops and reverses direction at full speed to the opposite limit. If reversing at force set point: Series 7 or 5 gauge or indicator with load cell, and 09-1214 interface cable
If reversing at travel limit: AF011 programmable travel limits option
If reversing at break: AF019 break detection option and 09-1214 interface cable
Cycling / dwell time AF014 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. Same as auto return, at the same speed in each direction. Add AF016 for independent up and down speeds.
Independent Up and Down Speeds AF016 Configurable speeds for up and down directions. -
Low Speed Extension AF017 Extends the standard speed range down to 0.5 mm/min. -
High Speed Extension AF018 Extends the standard speed range up to 1,100 mm/min. -
Break Detection¹ AF019 Crosshead stops at a sudden drop in force. Programmable percentage of peak force. Series 7 or 5 gauge or indicator with load cell
09-1214 interface cable
Load Holding¹ AF020 Dynamically adjusts the crosshead position to maintain a programmed load for an indefinite or specified period of time. Series 7 or 5 gauge or indicator with load cell
If a specified time is required, add AF014 cycling / dwell time option
09-1214 interface cable
Preload / Sample Touch AF021 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. AF009 travel indication
Series 7 or 5 gauge or indicator with load cell
09-1214 interface cable
Load Holding¹ AF022 Save and recall sets of test parameters, such as speeds, travel limits, preloads, etc. Up to 50 profiles may be stored. -
