The Equotip 550 is the most versatile all-in-one solution for portable hardness testing, combining Leeb with Portable Rockwell methods. The new generation Touchscreen with elaborate user interface increases user efficiency and exceptional user experience. Enhanced software provides interactive wizards, automatic verification processes, personalization options, customized report functions and much more.
Automatic conversions to all common hardness scales (HV, HB, HRC, HRB, HRA, HS and Rm) are required.
Highly accurate: ±4 HL (0.5% at 800 HL) with automatic correction for impact directions
Modular Concept: Wide measurement range with flexible configurations for various industry applications and a variety of impact devices and support rings to serve most hardness testing requirements.
Combined method: Automatic on-site correlation of Leeb to Portable Rockwell true indentation hardness value
Extensive range of precise hardness test blocks available for each impact device with different hardness levels for regular verification.
Interactive Guides: On screen notifications to obtain the most relevant settings for your application
Conversion Curves: Creates, edits and verifies material conversion curves directly on the instrument.
Custom Reports: Modular generator allows for customized measurement reports.
Automation Option: Integration of NDT automation into quality management systems and automated testing environments.
Robust Housing designed to be used on-site and in harsh environments (IP 54), including carrying strap, integrated stand and sunshield cover.
