►Coefficient of Friction Testing, ►Seat Belt Retraction Force, ►Switch Activation Force, ►Rotary Dial Torque, ►Fastener Torque Testing, ►Ignition Switch Torque Measurement, ►Turn Signal Stalk Activation Testing, ►Wire Terminal Crimp Pull Testing, ►Spring Testing, ►Bearing Torque Testing, ►Windshield Wiper Arm Force, ►Vibration Testing.

 

The ESM1500 and ESM 750 are highly configurable single-column force testers for tension and compression measurement applications with capacities of 1,500lbf (6.7kN) and 750lbf (3.4kN).Suitable for laboratory and production environments apart from break testing, cycling, limit testing to a load or distance, loadholding, elongation testing, tensile testing, compression testing, and more. The available FollowMe® facilitates crosshead positioning for sample setup. Hand guided push/pull on the load moves the crosshead at a dynamically variable speed. The stands feature a unique modular controller function platform. Functions such as travel measurement, cycling, etc. are offered individually, accommodating a wide range of budgets and applications.Force and travel data can be output to a PC for graphic and analysis using MESUR™gauge software, or fully control the stand by PC through a custom-written program in any language supporting ASCll communications.
