Mark-10 ESM1500S Motorized Test Stand 14.2 in. measurement
ESM1500S single-column force testers are highly configurable solutions for tension and compression measurement applications, with capacities of 1,500 lbF (6.7 kN) and 750 lbF (3.4 kN), respectively. With generous travel and clearance, they are suitable for break testing, cycling, limit testing to a load or distance, loadholding, elongation testing, tensile testing, compression testing, and more.
Satisfy various test methods through an intuitive menu with selectable test parameters, such as speed, number of cycles, etc. Up to 50 profiles may be saved and password protected. Crosshead positioning for sample setup is a breeze with available FollowMe®. Using your hand as your guide, push and pull on the load to move the crosshead at a dynamically variable speed.
The stands feature a unique modular controller function platform. Functions such as travel measurement, cycling, etc. are offered individually, accommodating a wide range of budgets and applications.
Collect force and travel data, plot and analyze results, and control test stand motion via MESUR®gauge Plus software. Or, fully control the stand by a PC through a custom application.

Any of the below functions may be purchased at time of order or may be activated in the field at a later date via an activation code. 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.
|FollowMeTM force-based positioning||SF008||Crosshead movement responds to manually pushing or pulling on the force gauge shaft or load cell. Increasing force produces greater speeds. Ideal for setups and quick positioning.|
|Travel indication||SF009||Travel 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.||–|
|Computer control||SF010||The ESM1500 may be fully controlled by a PC through a custom-written program in any language supporting ASCII communications. Also responds to the legacy Chatillon TCD command set and legacy Nexygen TCD software (not available from Mark-10).|
|Programmable travel limits||SF011||The stand stops at or cycles between programmable upper and lower travel distances.|
|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.|
|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 other limit.|
|Cycling / dwell time||SF014||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.|
|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||Extends the standard speed range up to 90 in/min [2,300 mm/min].||–|
|Break detection||SF019||Crosshead stops at a sudden drop in force. Programmable percentage of peak force.|
|Loadholding||SF020||Dynamically adjusts the crosshead position to maintain a programmed load for an indefinite or specified period of time.|
|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.|
