Our portable electronic Shore hardness tester doesn’t just measure the data: it saves it, processes it and sends it wherever you want. Our instrument has been designed for the more demanding user.

  • Integrated RS232 data output for immediate connection to printers or computers;
  • Three different measurement modes (peak, continuous, with timer);
  • Status of the measured hardness value compared with the set tolerance;
  • Ability to customize and store up to 10 statistical sessions and up to 3500 results;
  • Display of statistics, automatic averages and standard deviations in real time.

Our portable analogue Shore hardness tester is available for all Shore hardness tests on all polymer, elastomer, rubber and gel-like materials (such as plastics, rubber, medical goods, papers and sponges): A, B, C, D, DO, E, AO, O, OO, OOO and OOO-S in accordance with the ISO 48-4 e ASTM D2240, ISO 868 and ISO 21509 international reference standards.
