The V-HV400 uses the ultrasonic impedance test principle to provide accuracy and reliability at an affordable price. Reading in Vickers HV, with direct conversions to HRC, HRB, HB, and UTS, the flexible new unit is suitable for hardness tests on materials such as metals, plastics, ceramics. The lightweight CV-HV400 has a 1000 reading memory, can generate statistics and has an RS 232 output.
