The MICRO IRHD SYSTEM provides hardness readings on elastomers according to MICRO IRHD. Recommended specimen thickness is 1 to 5 mm. It complies to international standards such as DIN ISO 48, ISO 48-2 and ASTM D 1415. The MICRO IRHD SYSTEM is a hardness testing machine controlled by a Hildebrand MS-Windows software.
2 weights are automatically lowered and raised. Thus this system eliminates operator errors while testing. Specimen are positioned on the support table. The table automatically drives to the measuring head. The minor load is automatically lowered to the indenter. This position of the indenter represents 100 MICRO IRHD. The major load is lowered now. The penetration of the indenter is digitally measured after 30 seconds and converted into MICRO IRHD UNITS. The Hildebrand MICRO IRHD software checks and controls the operation of the system. The software is working under MS-Windows and offers unique features.
The hardness value, graph, hysteresis, statistics, test report are only a few features of this software. An ASCII-output file is provided. All data are transmitted to the IRHD Controller, which is connected to the RS 232 interface of the computer.
Required PC configuration:
Windows 7 or Windows 10 operating system
RS 232 readout (no USB connection to the IRHD Controller). Perhaps you install an RS232 card
PC must have administrator rights for installation and operation of the IRHD Software.
COM port (RS232 readout) number less than 10
Test Blocks Micro IRHD
Rubber Test Blocks according to MICRO IRHD ISO 48-2. The Rubber Test Blocks are only for a reference check to other samples or for a daily operational check of MICRO IRHD testers. The Rubber Test Blocks should be tested annually.
Different MICRO IRHD ranges are available: - 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90
Each test block is measured 10 times. The mean value, range and standard deviation are displayed on the test report. The Rubber Test Blocks are provided with a Proprietary Calibration Certificate issued by eurotech.
