The ESM303 motorized test stand is configurable for tension and compression measurement applications up to 300 lbF [1.5 kN].
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.
Configurable test speed, force and distance limits, cycling, preload, and many other functions, all protected by a password.
Individual optional 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.
Collect force and travel data, plot and analyze the results, and control test stand motion via PC-based MESUR™gauge Plus software. Or, fully control the stand by a PC through a custom-written program in any language supporting ASCII communications.

- Load capacity
- 300 lbF (1.5 kN) @ up to 24 in/min (610 mm/min)
- 200 lbF (1 kN) @ >24 in/min (610 mm/min)
- Maximum travel distance: 18.0 in (457 mm)
- Speed range:
- Standard: 0.5 - 13 in/min (13 - 330 mm/min)
- Optional: 0.02 - 45 in/min (0.5 - 1,100 mm/min)
- Speed setting accuracy: ±0.2% of setting
- Speed variation with load: ±0% (stepper motor driven)
- Travel accuracy: ±0.002 in. per 10 in. (±0.05 mm per 250 mm)
- Because load cell deflection and system deflection are present and not automatically compensated for, this equipment is recommended for applications requiring at least 0.2 in [5 mm] of travel distance.
- Travel resolution: 0.001 in / 0.02 mm
- Limit switch repeatability: 0.001 in (0.03 mm)
- Power: Universal input 80-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz, 60W
