The ESM301, available from IDM Instruments , is a configurable motorised test stand for tension and compression testing applications up to 300 lb (1.5 kN). The ESM301 test stand can be controlled from the front panel or through a computer. The ESM301 test stand is engineered on a modular platform, allowing for ‘build-your-own’ configurability. Features can be ordered individually at the time of the order or activated in the field.
The ESM301 test stand features integrated travel indication, overload protection, and a host of programmable parameters and its menu structure allows for quick set-up and operation. A password can be programmed to prevent unauthorised changes. With a rugged and modular design, the ESM301 test stand is suitable for applications in laboratory and production environments.
The ESM301 test stand also features selectable speed units of measurement (in/minmum and mm/minimum), LCD display with UP, DOWN, STOP, and emergency stop buttons and soft keys. The stepper motor-driven, produces 0% speed variation with load.
Different fixtures, grips and compression plates can be used alongside the ESM301 test stand, with the removable fixture mounting plate, having a matrix of threaded holes. The ESM301 test stand also has mounting holes for bench mounting, and features a mechanical design, to reduce column bending.
