DeFelsko Corporation (Ogdensburg, NY) has introduced the new PosiTector SHD Shore Hardness Durometer for measuring the indentation hardness of non-metallic materials such as vulcanized (thermoset) rubber, elastomers and polymers. The handheld PosiTector SHD is available in two models for different hardness ranges – Shore A and Shore D. Features include:
- A digital display.
- A user-adjustable measurement time with onscreen countdown.
- An “Auto Ignore” mode that disregards readings below 20 and above 90 to comply with international standards.
- An internal memory and the ability to continually display statistics including average, standard deviation, min/max hardness and the number of readings while measuring.
- Compatibility with the PosiSoft suite of software solutions for viewing, analyzing and reporting durometer data.
Advanced models include increased memory storage, live graphing of measurement data, built-in WiFi wireless technology and an auto-pairing Bluetooth BLE connection to connect PosiTector Advanced instruments to your iOS or Android smart device.
