The new PosiTector SHD Shore Hardnesss Durometer is a handheld electronic instrument that measures the indentation hardness of non-metallic materials.Two durometer models are available for different hardness ranges: Shore A and Shore D. An easily read digital display has a reset feature to instantly restore factory settings. The durable case repels solvents, acid, oil, water and is dust resistant, and includes a shock-absorbing, protective rubber holster with belt clip and has a two-year warranty on the body and probe. A Certificate of Calibration showing traceability to NIST is included. In Auto Ignore mode, the unit disregards readings below 20 and above 90, per international standards. A Hi-RES mode increases displayed resolution to 0.1, and a test block is included to verify operation. This durometer conforms to national and international standards including ISO and ASTM. The unit continually displays/updates average, standard deviation, min/max hardness and number of readings while measuring. It also features screen capture, to save screen images for record keeping and review. The HiLo feature alarms audibly, and visibly alerts a user when measurements exceed user-specified limits. There is a USB port for fast, simple connection to a PC and to supply continuous power. A PosiSoft USB drive stores readings and graphs can be accessed using universal PC/Mac web browsers or file explorers. The unit also has a PosiSoft suite of software for viewing and reporting data. No software is required, but software updates via the internet keep each gauge current.
