ESM750FG ESM750Motorized test stand with force gauge mount, 750 lbF

Made in USA
The ESM750 is a highly capacity single-column motorized force test stand for tension and compression measurement applications up to 750 lb (3.4 kN). It is suitable for production and laboratory use, the ESM750 may be used with an indicator-load cell combination or with a force gauge. 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 load cell or force gauge to move the crosshead at a dynamically variable rate of speed.

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, load-holding, elongation testing, tensile testing, compression testing, and more. 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.

Controller functions are offered individually through a unique “build-your-own” configuration platform. Order any combination of functions to customize the test stand to specific requirements. Functions not ordered originally can be activated in the field.

Force and travel data can be output to a PC for graphing and analysis using MESURTMgauge software. Or, fully control the stand by a PC through a custom-written program in any language supporting ASCII communications.

Features

  • Compatible with indicators and load cells, as well as force gauges
  • Adjustable, removal controller with intuitive menu navigation
  • Password protection of test parameters
  • Stepper motor-driven, producing smooth and quiet operation with no speed variation under load
  • USB output of force vs. time or force vs. distance
  • Compact footprint, suitable for crowded workbenches
  • Ergonomic design, with smart, clean cable management
  • Most electronics housed in an integrated removeable enclosure, easily removed and transported

A complete options package is also available at a discounted price. The stand is supplied in Demo Mode, a 160-hour time period in which all functions are temporarily enabled.

Feature Part No. Description Requirements
FollowMeTM force-based positioning SF008 Position the crosshead by 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 indication SF009 Position 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.
  • For data output to a PC, a Series 7 or 5 gauge or indicator is required
Computer control SF010 Fully control the stand and force gauge / indicator via custom-written application in any language supporting ASCII communications. Also responds to the legacy Chatillon TCD command set and legacy Nexygen TCD software (not available from CheckLine).

This option is not required for MESUR®gauge Plus software.
  • Series 7 or 5 gauge or indicator
  • SF009 travel indication
  • For full speed range, consider SF017 and SF018 speed range extensions
Programmable travel limits SF011 The stand stops at or cycles between programmable upper and lower travel distances.
  • SF009 travel indication option
Overload protection SF012 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.
  • Series 7 or 5 gauge or indicator
Auto Return SF013 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.
  • 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 as auto-return, but with the ability to program up to 99,999 cycles. Programmable dwell time for upper and lower limits (set independently) can be set up for up to 9,999 seconds.
  • Same as auto-return, at the same speed in each direction. Add SF016 for independent 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 0.001 in/min (0.02 mm/min). -
High Speed Extension SF018-1 Extends the standard speed range up to 60 in/min (1,525 mm/min). -
Break Detection SF019 Crosshead stops at a sudden drop in force. Programmable percentage of peak force.
  • Series 7 or 5 gauge or indicator
Load Holding SF020 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
  • If a specified time is required, order SF014 cycling / dwell time option
Preload / Sample Touch SF021 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.
  • Series 7 or 5 gauge or indicator
  • SF009 travel indication
Profiles SF022 Save and recall sets of test parameters, such as speeds, travel limits, preload, etc. Maximum of 50 profiles may be stored. -
