Model ES05

Manual Test Stand

The compact ES05 test stand is designed for compression testing of up to 30 lbF (150 N). Typical applications include switch contact activation testing, small spring testing, peel testing, and more. A spring-loaded lever allows for repeatable testing with up to 1.5” (38 mm) displacement. The lever mechanism can be repositioned along the length of the column, allowing this stand to be used for various sized samples. The ES05’s small footprint makes it particularly well suited to crowded workbenches, while its low weight makes it very portable for field auditing or for quick transportation to other testing areas. Use the ES05 with Mark-10 force gauges and grips to create a complete testing solution.
