PCE-2000 (type D impact) Hardness Tester
Hardness tester for testing metals for hardness, with internal memory and RS-232 interface (cable and software included), external impact probe, MIN, MAX and AVG measurement, large measuring range

PCE-2000 (type D impact) portable hardness tester is used to quickly test the 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 R-S232 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 on this page. If you wish to acquire a hardness tester for metals without an interface, memory or software, click here.
If you are looking for a hardness tester which uses an impact method of measurement, click here.

PCE-2000 (type D impact) hardness tester

   - Measures all the standard parameters
   - External striking instrument (1.5m cable)
   - Large measurement range   
   - Highly accurate
   - Can measure in any position or angle
   - RS-232 interface

   - Software and data cable included
   - Internal memory of 100 groups of data
   - An array of adaptors available as well as
     optional striking instruments

  PCE-2000 (type D impact) hardness tester: user's manual

Principle of measurement for Brinell hardness testers:
The dynamic measurement process uses the difference between the rebound velocity of a small striking pin. This is shot from the device at the metal surface being measured by way of a tension spring.

Hardness testers can be used for:

steel, cast steel, cold cast steel tools, stainless steel, cast iron, aluminium, brass, bronze and forged metals

Measurement conditions:
   - Minimum surface measurable 10 x 10mm
   - Minimum radial curvature of measurement surface r = 30mm without adaptor, with adaptor screw
     and v-slot the minimum radial curve is 10 mm
   - For working pieces less than 5kg and wall thickness of less than 5mm,  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

  -The minimum weight of the material is 50 g, the minimum thickness is 3 mm, and the minimum depth of hardness is 0.8 mm

The following link has an explanation of the hardness testing process.

Software for the PCE-2000 hardness tester

Like the PCE-2000 (impact D) hardness tester, it comes with an RS-232 interface, which can be connected to a computer to allow for the data to be archived. Data saved to the memory of the device can also be sent to a computer for analysis and documentation. You will find software in the optional accessories further down on this page.

Optional accessories
 

- RS-232 interface adaptor to USB
The standard hardness tester includes an RS-232 interface cable.  The adaptor allows you to send data online or later to a computer.
 
ISO calibration certificate
The calibration certificate includes a laboratory calibration wtih a document containing all the measurement values. This allows for an annual recalibration.

- Adaptor for internal or external diameters
For concaved and convexed surfaces as well as an adaptor for radius. With these adaptors you can measure the insides of tubes.
