    The Proceq 540 UCI model is a pragmatic, cost-effective, alternative to the Equotip 550 UCI model. One difference is the Equotip 540 UCI model does not come with a test block. Upgrading to the Equotip 550 does have advantages, such as numerous software updates, that aid in making testing products easier. 

    Proceq's Equotip 540 flexible UCI HV1-HV10 hardness tester tests fine-grained material with any shape including heat-treated surfaces. The patented adjustable test load enables a wide range of testing applications. UCI model also works with Leeb and Portable Rockwell testing methods (probes sold separately).

    Features on-screen feedback which reduces measurement inaccuracies which can be caused by human error. The Proceq Equoptip 540 UCI model includes ready-to-go reports through powerful built-in reporting and an extremely durable touchscreen with enhanced software features and analysis functions. 

    The unit can be combined with Leeb and Portable Rockwell testing methods as well.
