General Info

The most popular portable hardness tester in the world is the Leeb hardness tester, however, there are tasks that using this method is very difficult or even impossible to solve. This is due to the physics of the method, which assumes the massiveness of the testing object, to ensure the inertness of the product when the Leeb’s impact body hits the surface with a given force. In order to solve a wider range of tasks on the rapid measurement of metal hardness, our company offers hardness testers that implement the method of ultrasonic contact impedance (UCI) in accordance with ASTM A1038. A vibrating rod (mechanical resonator) with a diamond tip acts as an indenter in these devices, when it indent into the material, the base frequency of the resonator changes, on the basis of which the hardness is calculated. This method has proven itself around the world and has been used in industry for over 50 years.

Innovation! Optionally, the device can be equipped with a Bluetooth module!

Hardness testers have never had such opportunities! Using a Bluetooth connection, your smartphone connects to the hardness tester and you have a completely new device – a new generation hardness tester! The intuitive interface, ample opportunities for documenting results, Internet access, touch screen, camera, microphone and GPS receiver of a smartphone turn your hardness tester into something completely unique and previously inaccessible.Do hardness measurements, calibrate the device, set up a convenient display of values, save the results of hardness measurements, synchronize the archive with your other devices and a PC, transfer measurement results to your colleagues – all this is available with your smartphone thanks to the special NOVOTEST app for Android.

Advantages:

  • Hardness measurement of any mass products with a thickness more than 1 mm – inaccessible to the dynamic (Leeb) hardness testers (small parts, thin-walled structures, pipes, tanks, steel sheets, articles of complex shape, hardness control of metal coatings, etc.)
  • Measuring the hardness of the surface hardened layer
  • Small imprint after measuring (mirror surfaces of shafts necks, blades, gear teeth, etc.)
  • Wide range of hardness testing
  • Various measurement modes
  • Calibration of any scale in any range
  • Convenience and ease for measurement
  • Optimized number of buttons
  • Large full color graphic display with bright back-lighting
  • Calibrations stored in memory of probe
  • Extended temperature range (frost, down to – 40°C)
  • Internal memory and communication with PC
  • New, intuitive menu with tips on the buttons
  • Optional wireless mini printer
  • Water resistant case
  • Rubber protected bumper
  • Has different operating modes:
  • Graph – the mode of building of graph
  • Histogram – the mode of building of histogram
  • Statistics – the mode of statistic
  • Smart – the mode of filtering of incorrect measurements

Application benefits:

– setting and calibration of the hardness tester;

– display of measurement results in real time in numerical form with the construction of a graph, histogram or statistics;

– take a picture of the test object with the puting of hardness marks; creation of a video of the controlled product;

– recording audio notes fro the tested object;

– automatic saving of measurement geolocation on Google maps;

– displaying a Google map with markers of places of measurements made on it and the ability to view these measurements;

– displaying the calendar of measurements (presentation of the archive in the form of measurements grouped by date);

– formation of the final comprehensive report on the measurement;

– sending a finished report to e-mail, messenger (or in any convenient way) directly from the application;

– flexible structure of the archive of measurements – completely similar to the usual explorer, with the ability to create folders and files with any names;

– synchronization with PC and other smartphones;

– cloud service for storing the archive of measurements;

– automatic and manual synchronization of cloud measurement archives between devices;

– launching the Google navigation mode, building a route and accompanying to the point at which the measurements were made

– the ability to store archives of other devices with Bluetooth in one application.
