Hardness tester PCE-2000

PCE-2000 (type D impact) portable hardness tester is used for quickly testing surface hardness of metalic materials according to the parameters: Rockwell B & C, Vickers HV, Brinell HB, Shore HS and Leeb HL. The hardness tester has a statistics function, a data storage function, and the interface RS232 to send data to the PC (software and cables included in the shipment). The hardness tester can be used in any position, including on a mount, with angle selection and adjustment. The striking unit fits easily on top of the item being measured. With the external digital indicator showing all the functions and readings, there is no way of making errors in the measurements. Technical specifications can be found further down this page. I

Principle of measurement for Brinell hardness testers: The dynamic measurement process uses the difference between the rebound velocity of a small striking pin.8 mm.Large measurement range .RS-232 interface .Software and data cable included.Hardness tester PCE-2000 .Internal memory of 100 groups of data .External striking instrument (1. cold cast steel tools.Highly accurate . the device should be fastened to a solid base before using it to measure hardness  Working pieces of less than 2kg have to be attached to a solid base using coupling gel. This is shot at the metal surface being measured from the device by way of a tension spring.Measures all the standard parameters . Hardness testers can be used for: steel. aluminium. . brass.Can measure in any position or angle . bronze and forged metals.  The minimum weight of the material is 50 g. Measurement conditions:  Minimum surface measurable 10 x 10mm  Minimum radial curvature of measurement surface r = 30mm without adaptor.5m cable) . cast iron.
