The new generation of HPE has many new features to offer. While the device is taking a hardness value from the specimen, a temperature sensor mounted on the bottom of the device is taking a temperature value. The device will have indication of both values as well as the values of the ambient temperature and humidity.

Historical measurements can be displayed for the hardness values and date/time when each measurement was taken. A Large LCD display for reading comfort, USB connection for data transfer and battery recharge, and a patented hand grip for achieving correct measuring angle and amount of force are all standard features on HPE III. 

Optional DAkkS-calibration certificate, control rings and standard rubber blocks are available.

Check device for HP and HPE II zoom

Check device for HP and HPE II 

In compliance with ISO 9000 the user is  obliged to a regular control of his measuring equipment. With the check device the accuracy of Shore hardness testers is controlled. It allows a quick control of the spring force in steps by ten for the measuring ranges Shore A/B/0/C/D/DO and L, L/c. 

DIN 53 505, EN ISO 868, NF EN ISO 868, ASTM D2240, JIS K 6253.

Hardtest - the test - and evaluation software program

Applicable for all electronic Bareiss testing devices with a serial interface. The programme contains all functions which are necessary for a faultless process

DAkkS/DKD calibration certificate

DAkkS/DKD calibration certificate

When a measuring instrument is being calibrated, the given deviation is determined by various measurements versus standard references. A calibration certificate is then issued indicating the measuring results and the corresponding measurement uncertainties and the instrument is marked as calibrated. 

All documents together with the calibration certificate provide traceability of national standards.
