Unique Features

With spring-less auto-reload feature, the impact device mechanism

With auto-reload feature, the user can repeatedly perform the test without manually loading the impact body. This magnetic force mechanism provided an easy hardness testing experience. This mechanism benefits from steady indentation force for the entire device lifetime.

One-hand test experience

The impact device is automatically loaded after each test and does not need the user to manually load it with two hands after each test. It provides more flexibility for the user to perform the hardness testing on non-easily accessible surfaces.

Software user calibration

The user can calibrate the device for each test material on three hardness ranges, i.e., low, medium, and high. This feature provides flexibility and accuracy for the user to calibrate the device based on a specific application.

High accuracy in electromagnetic-radiated environments

The impact device is designed with a very robust and accurate velocity measurement system by which very accurate hardness testing can be performed. This measuring system is accurate even in the environments where electromagnetic radiation is very high.


Data transfer using USB port

For convenience and ease of data transfer, the device is equipped with a USB port. Using the memory menu, you can select a range of tests to be transferred to the USB flash memory. The data is stored in a text file format that can be retrieved in any text editor software on the PC.

1500 memory for data storage

The device has a built-in memory in which 1500 hardness test will all of the statistical calculations can be stored. The data that can. E stored for each test are hardness scale, number of tests, minimum, average, maximum, range, standard deviation, code, and serial number.

Hardness testing in all directions

The test can be done in 0, 45, 90, 135, and 180 degrees and the device automatically compensates the errors caused by the impact body mass based on ISO 16859 standard. You only need to select the test direction and all other compensations will be performed by the device, automatically.

Same impact energy in all directions

Using the spring-less impact mechanism, the impact energy and velocity are the same in all directions. It results the same hardness value without any need to hardness compensation.

Hardness testing on flat, concave, and convex surfaces

Using three different support rings, hardness testing of almost any surface is possible. These support rings has been designed such a way that they fit in majority of industrial applications.

3000 tests with fully-charged batteries

With fully-charged batteries the device can perform up to 3000 tests. The device has 5 AA rechargeable NiCd batteries that can be charged using provided charger overnight.
