    Functions being added to the ESM1500 and ESM750 that were not originally purchased require a request code when placing the order. 

    Directions for retrieving request code:

    • While in normal operating mode, press and hold STOP, then press menu simultaneously, and release both buttons.
    • The display will appear similar to the below image.
    • Functions
    • Use the left or right arrow to scroll to the desired function.
    • Press ENTR.
    • You will then see the Request Code that is needed when ordering the Optional Function.

      Please call if you need assistance, 312-666-0595.

      The request code must be supplied we will then provide a corresponding authorization code to activate the function.

      | Optional Controller Functions

      Feature Description Requirements



      Crosshead movement responds to manually pushing or pulling on the force gauge shaft. Ideal for setups and quick positioning.

      M7 or M5 gauge

      09-1214 interface cable

      SF009 [ESM1500/ESM750]

      SF009-1 [ESM1500S/ESM750S]

      Travel Indication

      Travel is indicated on the control unit display, with output via USB. 

      M7 or M5 gauge

      09-1214 interface cable




      The test stand may be fully controlled by a PC through a custom-written program in any language supporting ASCII communications. This option is not required for Mesurgauge Plus software.

      M7 or M5 gauge

      09-1214 interface cable and 09-1158 USB output cable


      Programmable Travel Limits

      The stand stops at or cycles between programmable upper and lower travel distances. AF009 travel indication


      Overload Protection

      Protects a force gauge or force sensor against overload.

      M7 or M5 gauge

      09-1214 interface cable


      Auto Return

      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: M7 or M5 gauge 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

      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

      Configurable speeds for up and down directions. -


      Low speed extension

      Extends the standard speed range down to 0.02 in/min (0.5 mm/min). -

      SF018 [ESM1500/ESM1500S]

      SF018-1 [ESM750/ESM750S]

      High speed extension

      Extends the standard speed range up to 45 in/min (1,100 mm/min). -


      Break detection

      Crosshead stops at a sudden drop in force. Programmable percentage of peak force.

      M7 or M5 gauge

      09-1214 interface cable



      Dynamically adjusts the crosshead position to maintain a programmed load for an indefinite or specified period of time.

      M7 or M5 gauge

      If specified time add AF014

      09-1214 interface cable


      Preload/sample touch

      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.

      M7 or M5 gauge

      AF009 travel indication

      09-1214 interface cable



      Save and recall sets of test parameters, such as speeds, travel limits, preloads, etc. Up to 50 profiles may be stored. -


      Complete options package

      Includes all functions listed above, plus 09-1214 interface cable and 09-1158 USB cable. M7 or M5 gauge
