The 100 lbF (500 N) capacity ESMH-DC Advanced Motorized Force Measurement Test Stand offers all the
mechanical specifications of the ESMH motorized test stand, including
smooth top surface ideal for coefficient of friction testing,
integrated limit switches, stepper motor design that prevents speed
variation with load, and more.
The ESMH-DC offers expanded capabilities, including PC
control, programmable cycling, auto return, and other features.
Digital travel display <<
12" [300 mm]
travel, 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.
Multi-function cable, gauge to
Connects a Series 4, 5, or 7 force gauge to the
controller. This single cable is used to transmit set points, overload signals,
and force data.
Serial cable, controller to PC
Bi-directional communication with a PC for computer
control. Also sends force data from the controller to a PC.
RS-232 to USB adapter Converts RS-232 to USB
output. Includes USB cable and installation CD.
Eye End Adapters >> Allow for quick grip installation and removal, and prevent grip rotation. Mount to common test frames, load cells, and force gauges
An RS-232 port is provided to interface with a PC.
The ESMH-DC accepts a number of commands pertaining to test stand motion and
force gauge functions*. The
following additional items are required for PC control:
- 09-1162 multi-function
cable (see Optional Equipment)
Protects a force gauge against overload (requires a Series 4, 5, or 7 force gauge and
09-1162 multi-function cable). The user programs the desired percentage of full
scale of the gauge. Adjustable analog output voltage setting allows the test
to interface with virtually any force gauge with analog output.
The crosshead moves to a limit switch or force set
point (requires a Series 4, 5, or 7 force gauge), stops, and reverses
direction at maximum speed to the other limit switch or set point.
Cycling / Dwell Time
The crosshead moves up and down between
limit switches or force set points (requires a Series 4, 5, or 7 force gauge). Configurable up to 99,999 cycles. Dwell time allows the operator to
program the amount of time, up to 9,999.9 seconds, in 0.1 second intervals, for
which the crosshead pauses at limits.
Programmable LEFT / RIGHT Button Functions LEFT and RIGHT button operation
can be configured in three
user-configurable modes: Maintained: a short push produces
continuous motion until STOP is pressed, Momentary: crosshead moves only
while the button is pressed, and Auto: short push produces maintained
motion, while holding down the button will produce momentary motion.
Left and Right Speeds
Programmable independent speeds for left and right directions
Selectable speed units of
measurement (in/min & mm/min)
Prevents unauthorized changes to test parameters
* Contains no integrated travel measurement. Travel information available only
through the external ESMH001 digital travel display, requiring an additional
serial port on the PC. For an integrated solution with full PC control,
including travel distance, see test stand model ESM301.
