Hardness Tester PCE-2000N-ICA incl. ISO Calibration Certificate
Hardness tester for metallic materials / Different impactors available / 7 different hardness scales / Save the data on USB stick
The PCE-Instruments PCE-2000N hardness meter uses the Leeb rebound method. This is a dynamic hardness test method in which a standardized test specimen, usually a hard metal ball, is hit with defined impact energy on a test surface. The impact of the hard metal ball on the test surface results in a plastic deformation of the surface at the point of impact. From this deformation results in an energy loss, which is proportional to the workpiece hardness and can be determined by the ratio of rebound to impact velocity of the specimen.
This technology enables a compact design, which makes it particularly suitable for the hardness tester. In contrast to static test methods with heavy hardness testing machines, a mobile hardness tester can be used very flexibly in the incoming or outgoing inspection, in production and generally in all areas where hardness has an influence on quality parameters. The hardness tester from PCE Instruments can be used to measure six different hardness scales (HL, HV, HRA, HRC, HB, HV, HS) as well as ten different materials.
As standard, the hardness meter is supplied with a striker D, but optional additional impactors (DC, DL, C, D + 15, E, G) can be connected for more specific applications. In addition, the data can be saved directly on a USB stick, which further extends the flexibility of this mobile hardness tester. With a highly readable OLED display, a long standby time, a handy housing and a symbol-based menu navigation, the handling of the mobile hardness tester is extremely user-friendly.
