CISAM ERNST e-handy Wireless Hardness Tester

CISAM ERNST e-handy Wireless Hardness Tester

Quickly and Accurately Measures the Smallest of Test Points

Measures Previously Inaccessible Points with Precision

The e-handy is a unique portable hardness tester that determines hardness by measuring electrical resistance and can measure extremely small areas that are physically inaccessible to other hardness testers, all with maximum precision and reliability. It does not require zero references for measurement, can measure on assembled parts, and offers a very extensive set of accessories for various applications. In addition to hardness testing, the Load/Hardness curve provides information on surface treatment of the workpiece. The e-handy operates in accordance with DIN 50158 and is ACCREDIA certified (and ILAC circuit equivalents).



  • Principle based on the measurement of electrical resistance
  • Tests in points inaccessible to traditional hardness testers: gears, couplings, cavities, interiors, weld seams, HAZ (Heat Affected Zone)
  • 1 diamond indenter for the entire range of metals
  • Simplicity and speed of the testing process - a single tool for various detections
  • Continuous measurement of hardness at various loads
  • Immediate evaluation of surface heat treatment
  • ACCREDIA certification (ILAC MRA-Mutual Recognition Arrangements)
    • Offers a competitive advantage in markets where certification is required
