Order no.: PCE-3500-10

The Ultrasonic Contact Impedance (UCI) durometer PCE-3500 has been designed for the non-destructive hardness measurement of metallic components. A 136° Vickers diamond at the probe is stimulated with its self-resonance to allow the user to very accurately measure hardness of small items, thin-walled items (>1 mm), and surface-hardened layers. Small imprint after measuring for mirrored surfaces and nitrided surfaces.


- 10 Newtons UCI probe / 2.2 lbf force, 50 and 98 N probes are options
- Tests HRC, HRB, HV, HB, MPa
- Memory function via SD card and included PC software
- Large color LCD display with back lighting

  (HRC), Brinell (HB), Vickers (HV) and MPa (N/mm?) SI units
- Measurement ranges:
  61 … 85.6 HRA, 41 … 100 HRB, 20.3 … 68 HRC,
  85 … 650 HB, 50 … 999 HV, 255 … 2180 MPa (N/mm²)

- Accuracy: ± 1.5 HR, ± 3% HB, ± 3% HV
- Memory size: 1,000 groups for measurement data and 20 groups for
