Metal Hardness Tester
Displays measurements in Rockwell A, B & C, Vickers, Brinell, Shore and Leeb hardness units

2000 is a portable handheld material hardness tester or durometer designed for the quick and easy surface hardness testing of metals. This user-friendly device displays measurements in Rockwell A, B & C (HRA, HRB & HRC), Vickers (HV), Brinell (HB), Shore (HS) and Leeb (HL) hardness units. The hardness tester has a statistics function, an internal memory for storage of up to 100 data sets, and an RS-232 port to transfer the data to a computer (PC-compatible software and data cable included in the delivery contents) for analysis, reporting and archival. The hardness tester can be used as a portable handheld device or permanently mounted with angle selection and adjustment. The external probe features a streamlined design and a 1.5 m / 4.92' long cable, allowing for use in small access points.
