Manual Test Stand Model ES30
The ES30 Force Measurement Test Stand is a versatile and economical solution for most compression and tensile testing applications. It can accept a wide variety of sample shapes and sizes and can be configured in many positions due to modular design. Precision hand wheel operation enables the user to easily and accurately test up to 200 lbF [1 kN] of force. Use the ES30 with any Mark-10 force gauge and grips to create a complete testing solution.

  • Maximum force: 200 lbF [1 kN]
  • Compatible with all Mark-10 force gauges, accessories and grips
  • Maximum travel: 13" [330 mm]
  • Travel rate: 0.05" [1.27 mm]/hand wheel revolution
  • Mounting holes for bench mounting Modular design: base may be removed and the stand may be used as part of a larger system. It also provides for alternative mounting
  • Removable base plate with 25 #10-32 threaded holes for fixture mounting
  • Competitor force gauge mounting kits available

Mark-10 force gauges with data output include a USB cable, which can be connected directly to a PC. If the ESM001 digital travel display option is ordered and connection to a PC is desired, the following connection cables are required:
Travel display (Mitutoyo) <=> 09-1066 cable, Mitutoyo <=> MRS100A converter, Mitutoyo to RS-232 <=> RSU100 converter, RS-232 to USB (optional)
Ordering information for these accessories can be found here.

  A wide range of force gauges and gripping fixtures
  Digital travel display*
6" [150 mm] and 12" [300 mm] travel models available, 0.0005" [0.01 mm] resolution, 0.001" [0.03 mm] accuracy, SPC output for automated data collection. For output of travel data to a PC, the following items are required: 09-1066 cable and MRS100A communication adapter. Note: continuous data output rate is limited to 2 Hz.
    Column extensions
A spacer is supplied between the base and the column, increasing clearance between the force gauge and base (does not increase travel distance). Available in 6", 12", and 24", and custom lengths.

Eye end adapters
Allow for quick grip installation and removal, and prevent grip rotation. Mount to common test frames, load cells, and force gauges

    Competitor force gauge mounting kits available
* Because load cell deflection and system deflection are present and not automatically compensated for, this equipment is recommended for applications requiring at least 0.2 in [5 mm] of travel distance.
