HVS-1000P/PZ large screen digital display micro hardness tester

Vickers Hardness Tester Digital Measuring Screen, Automatic Turret desktop Micro vickers hardness tester with block


     The Micro Vickers Hardness Tester is a new type high-tech product combining the optical, mechanic and electronic techniques; with a big LCD screen, a novel and pleasing appearance, direct-viewing, operational functions and reliability, and hence it is an ideal instrument for the testing of micro-hardness. The indenter and the objective shifting are automatically completed.

     Made with a precise design in the field of mechanics, CPU control of the testing in the electric field, and adopted the highly clear optic testing system and photo-electric sensor in the field of optics, the instrument has multiple functions as the input by means of the touch keys on the operating board, the presetting of the dwell time for test force, the selection of the Vickers or the Knoop measuring methods, regulation of the intensity for measuring light source. All the testing data such as the indentation length, the hardness value, the number of the measurements and the date and time are all shown on the LCD screen; and can be outputted by printer as well. By means of RS232 interface, the instrument would be connected with computer.

      SP-5 is designed on the basis of traditional measuring microscope. It adds optical measuring components, CCD measuring components, 8" colorful LCD display components to microscope, and it can help to display the indentation image on LCD and make hardness test directly. In this way, the human error caused by long time eye viewing through microscope can be reduced. It is especially the ideal means for multiple persons to measure at the same time. It can be widely applied in constitutes, research dept. and factories.
