Portable Digital Hardness Tester

SKU 15970


An advanced hardness tester distinguished by its very compact size, high accuracy, wide measuring range and simplicity of operation. It is suitable for testing the hardness of all metals and widely applied in many areas of industry.

It automatically computes all Vickers, Brinell, Rockwell and Shore hardness values. RS232 output enables this new model to print any of it's memory from up to 2000 locations. The impact direction can be set so that the accurate values can be achieved at any angle, even upside down! Statistical mean value automatically provided.
