                                                      The ESM1500 is a highly configurable single-column force tester for tension and
                                                      compression measurement applications, suitable for laboratory and production
                                                      environments. The ESM1500 may be used with an indicator-load cell combination
                                                      (ESM1500LC) or with a force gauge (ESM1500FG). 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 load cell or force gauge to move

                                                      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

                                                      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 custom-
