Load Cell and Grips Sold Separately
Series F test frames with EasyMESUR® are engineered to perform a wide range of tension and compression tests, including break testing, cycling, limit testing to a load or distance, load holding, average force testing, and more.
Set up and run tests, export results, and create a report via the integrated, easy-to-use touchscreen interface – no PC or force gauge required. For unique needs, run the tester from a PC with your own custom application utilizing EasyMESUR®’s serial command library.
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.
Engineered around a modular function platform, the EasyMESUR® run screen can be arranged with large, simple controls – or configured for more advanced applications with a selection of optional functions, including distance measurement, graphing, cycling, and more. Purchase functions and packages at time of order or enable them in the field via activation codes. All testers are shipped in a 160-hour evaluation mode, in which all functions are available.
Generous travel, clearance, and depth dimensions accommodate samples of various shapes and properties. Modular mechanical design accommodates single- and double-column extensions for oversized specimens.
Select from vertical or horizontal orientations, along with a broad range of force sensor capacities and an expansive array of grips and fixtures.

- Load holding
- Cycle testing
- Average force testing
View data in graphical format or results tables. Save or export data as needed, or generate a report.
What's your point of view?
Run a test via the Standard, Graph, or Results views, and switch views as needed. Pass / Fail indicator easily identifies problematic samples.
View large-format load and distance values, with pass/fail status.
View a graph of load vs. distance or time, with pass/fail status.
View results for each run, with corresponding statistics for the results.
Test setup is easy as 1-2-3
Select a test type, and EasyMESUR® will guide you through the setup.

Robust data acquisition and management
Force sensor sampling rate of 5,000 Hz yields accurate peak measurements even in quick-duration events. EasyMESUR® collects load and travel data at up to 100 Hz, and allows up to 100,000 data points per run.
Print or create a PDF report, including results, statistics, graph, system and user information, and comments.
Create report templates to save with future reports.
Save or export data
Automatically or manually save individual runs and results to a USB drive or file location of your choice. File names are automatically generated with the test name and time stamp, for quick searchability.
Results sets and data from individual runs may also be exported as .csv files.
Intelligent manual control
Manually control the test frame to obtain quick force and distance results, or manually position the crosshead prior to a test. Select from several actuation methods, including momentary (button-hold), maintained (button release) motion, jog mode with three distance presets, and FollowMe® force-based positioning.
Push and pull on the force sensor to move the crosshead. Apply greater load to achieve faster motion. FollowMe® is responsive enough for quick positioning as well as fine adjustments.
Calibrate force sensors on the test frame or off-site
Calibrate force sensors in one of two ways:
EasyMESUR® provides an integrated utility, with an intuitive step-by-step wizard. Manual controls allow the technician to use the test frame to apply tension and compression forces.
Conveniently remove the force sensors for off-site calibration with a Mark-10 Model M7I or M5I indicator (requires optional AC1083 adapter).
Secure user access
Control user access to sensitive areas, such as test editing and calibration, via password.
