    Additional Features:

    Adjustable test load

    The required test load can be selected by the user in the settings menu. For each measurement series, the force can be chosen from ten levels between HV1 and HV10, to fit a wide range of applications. The minimum required mass for reliable UCI measurements is 0.3 kg (0.66 lbs), and a thickness of at least 5 mm (0.2 inch).


    HV1 - Precision parts, thin coatings, hardened layers
    HV5 - Large components, HAZ, forging parts

    Optional Special Foot

    The optionally available special foot increases the measurement repeatability. It can be used for flat or curved surfaces. For curved surfaces there are two different apertures, one for diameters from 5 to 25 mm and one for larger diameters from 20 to 70 mm.
