Quick hardness testing wherever you wish.
As with all other hardness testers from our MICRODUR line, the MIC 10 operates according to the UCI method (Ultrasonic Contact Impedance). This method enables quick and easy measurement: position probe and read off the value. This operational ease is achieved because the Vickers diamond indent in the material’s surface is electronically measured and instantly displayed as a hardness value without using the cumbersome optical evaluation of a microscope normally associated with Vickers hardness testing.
The small, handy MIC 10 makes life easy for you: a hardness tester that you can take anywhere - on scaffolds for testing large containers and pipes, or for testing components at any location. The small narrow probes even enable you to make measurements on positions dif?cult to access, such as tooth ?anks or roots of gears.
You can measure in any direction, e.g. in the horizontal or overhead positions. The instrument carrier and prop-up stand permits two hand operation, for correct probe positioning and guidance.
Easy operation, high performance and unique data processing.
By pressing a key, you can display your reading as a single value or as the active arithmetical average value of a hardness measurement set. Editing of erroneous single values, without having to interrupt the measurement set, is just as simple. Adjustable alarm thresholds show you critical measurement values both visually and with audiable alarms. The calibration parameters for measurements on low and non-alloyed steel are preprogrammed into the MIC10; however, the instrument can be easily and quickly recalibrated to other materials.
Instrument operation can be customized for speci?c testing requirements: unnecessary functions can be inhibited, e.g. various hardness scales or the recalibration capability. This reduces key presses and simpli?es operation.
Saving data - unlimited possibilities.
We have given a lot of thoughts to the subject of saving data and have come up with the MIC 10 DL in order to give you special support with repetitive testing and documentation. Memory cards are available in addition to the internal memory of the instrument, these not only store measurement data but also material dependent instrument settings and report formats. You are able to calibrate the instrument automatically for speci?c material using the information stored on the memory card. Reports can be created in an individual format and printed via the RS 232C interface of the MIC 10. Once again, the operation is simple: switch on data logger or insert a memory card and measure.
After measurement, the complete measurement set is automatically stored at the next available location and can be recalled at any time, displayed and printed.
Additionally, the user programs of the UltraHARD series offer you a range of possibilities for data transfer to a PC and further data processing like evaluation, statistics and documentation.
