ESM303H Configurable Horizontal Tension and Compression Test Bench


The ESM303H is a configurable horizontal test stand for tensile and compressive force measurements up to 1.5 kN. Its robust design make it perfectly suitable for applications in laboratory and production environments.

This horizontal test stand is also equipped with FollowMe ™ technology, which enables fine positioning of the crosshead and alignment of the test object by hand in order to move the display device or the measuring device to the desired position.Typical applications include rupture tests, cycle tests, load limit testing, constant force and elongation tests, tensile tests and compression tests. An easy-to-use menu enables simple configuration of the test speed, force and load limits as well as the setting of cycles, preload and many other functions. These settings can be protected by a password.

The ESM303H has memory for up to 50 profiles in order to be able to call up a series of test procedures. If the travel path of the ESM303H is not sufficient for an application, the travel path can be extended with a column extension. This modularity then also extends to the control functions.Individual functions such as travel measurement, cycles, constant force etc. can either be activated from the start or subsequently activated by using an activation code. This a-la-carte platform allows custom configuration to fit application needs as well as budget requirements.

Force and displacement measurement data can be transferred directly to a PC with the the MESUR ™ gauge Plus software. The latter allows for graphical data evaluations and reports for data analysis to be created. Furthermore, there is the possibility of a complete control of the ESM303H test stand via the PC, by means of an individually written program that is supported by ASCII communication.


Features
  • Selectable speed setting
  • Right and left travel limit switches
  • Adjustable, removable control panel may be mounted to the left or right end of the frame
  • Password protection of test parameters
  • Stepper motor-driven, producing smooth and quiet operation with no speed variation under load
  • USB output of force or force vs. travel
  • Compact footprint, suitable for crowded work benches
  • Ergonomic design, with smart, clean cable management
  • Integrated electronics assembly, easily removed and transported for service
  • Adjustable mounting plate with T-slot base

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.
09-1252 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 09-1252 and 09-1158 cables, and a Series 7 or 5 gauge or indicator with load cell.
Computer control AF010 The ESM303H 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
09-1252 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
09-1252 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 09-1252 interface cable
If reversing at travel limit: AF011 programmable travel limits option
If reversing at break: AF019 break detection option and 09-1252 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
09-1252 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
09-1252 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
09-1252 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. -
Complete Options Package AFCOMP Includes all functions listed above, plus 09-1252   interface cable and 09-1158 USB cable. Requires a Series 7 or 5 gauge or indicator with load cell.
