                                                 Model ESM303

                                                 Force, Motorized, 300 lbF / 1,500 N

                                                 The ESM303 is a highly configurable single-column force tester for tension and
                                                 compression measurement applications, with a rugged design suitable for
                                                 laboratory and production environments. Sample setup and fine positioning
                                                 are a breeze with available FollowMeTM 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 dynamically variable rate of speed.
                                                 With generous travel, clearance, and depth dimensions, a wide range of tests
                                                 can be performed, including 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 easy-to-use menu, allowing
                                                 the configuration of test speed, force and distance limits, cycling, preload, and
                                                 many other functions, all protected by a password. Save up to 50 profiles to
                                                 accommodate a range of test methods.
                                                 Force and travel data can be output to a PC for graphing and analysis using
                                                 MESURTMgauge software. Or, fully control the stand by a PC through a
                                                 customwritten program with ASCII communication.
