EasyMeasur Brochure EasyMesur Manual

This family of force testers is designed for tension and compression force testing applications, with force capacities up to 500 lbF (2.2 kN). Select from vertical or horizontal orientations, along with a broad range of force sensor capacities and an expansive array of grips and fixtures.
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.
