The Mark-10 ESM303U Motorised Tension/ Compression Test Stand is a clever, configurable, single-column force tester optimised for conducting a range of compression and tension tests. This versatile test stand, featuring an adjustable mounting plate with a T-slot base, has a maximum range of 300 lbF/ 1.5kN and programmable test parameters including speed, force, distance limits, cycling and preload. For an overview of the Mark-10 ESM303U Motorised Tension/ Compression Test Stand and its applications, please see the following video.

Also expanding this instrument’s scope-for-use is its generous travel, clearance and depth dimensions. The Mark-10 ESM303U Motorised Tension/ Compression Test Stand is suitable for conducting the following tests:

  • Break
  • Cycling
  • Limit to a load or distance
  • Load holding
  • Elongation
  • Tensile
  • Compression

The simple interface allows the user to program the aforementioned test parameters to suit the application. All settings are password protected to prevent unauthorised alteration. It is possible to save up to fifty test profiles to the Mark-10 ESM303 Motorises Tension/ Compression Test Stand, improving the ease and efficiency of measurement procedures.

In addition to this, the Mark-10 ESM303U Motorised Tension/ Compression Test Stand includes a selection of functions designed to improve the ease of testing such as upper and lower travel limit switches and FollowMe™ force-based positioning: the operator uses his/her hand as a guide to push or pull the force gauge or load cell to move the crosshead at a variable rate of speed. The FollowMe™ function enables fast and fine positioning/ setup.

Additionally, the Mark-10 ESM303U Motorised Tension/ Compression Test Stand is stepper motor-driven ensuring it maintains consistent test speeds regardless of load. Furthermore, this stepper motor-driven design ensures test procedures are smooth and quiet.

Also adding to the convenience, practicality and adaptability of the Mark-10 ESM303U Motorised Tension/ Compression Test Stand is its rugged, ergonomic, modular design. It is suitable for use in laboratories and production environments. Its compact construction means it can easily fit on crowded workbenches, whilst its clean cable management prevents tangling and hazardous situations.

Furthermore, the Mark-10 ESM303 Motorised Tension/ Compression Test Stand’s integrated electronics assembly can be easily removed and transported as can its adjustable, removable controller with intuitive menu navigation.

The Mark-10 ESM303U Motorised Tension/ Compression Test Stand's mechanical modular design also works to expand its scope-for-use as it can accommodate single- and double column extensions which lengthen the tester’s clearance. Moreover, the Mark-10 ESM303 Motorised Tension/ Compression Test Stand’s measurement functions (such as travel measurement, cycling and load holding) can also be expanded either through up-front purchase or enabled in-the-field via an activation code. This allows the user to completely configure the Mark-10 ESM303U Motorised Tension/ Compression Test Stand to suit his/her requirements.

It is possible to output force vs time or force vs travel data from the Mark-10 ESM303U Motorised Tension/ Compression Test Stand to a PC via a USB connection. Once downloaded to a PC, data can be plotted and analysed using Mark-10’s MESUR™ Gauge Plus Software (NOT included). This program can also be used to operate the Mark-10 ESM303U Motorised Tension/ Compression Test Stand remotely.

Alternatively, the Mark-10 ESM303U Motorised Tension/ Compression Test Stand can be operated remotely using a custom-written program in any language supporting ASCII communications.

The Mark-10 ESM303U Motorised Tension/ Compression Test Stand is a completely adaptable, versatile and easy-to-use single-column force tester.
