Brinell Check is a small video instrument (it can be hold in a hand) able to measure automatically the Brinell hardness value or "calibrated shear pin" on indents from 1 mm to 2,5 mm or from 1,5 mm to 5 mm of diameter (made in two versions). Equipped with a stainless steel body and a magnetic base, it can stay in an erect and stable position above the indent allowing an image vision perfectly clean and ensuring careful and constant measurements.
   Placing the Brinell Check on a flat or curved surface and pressing the acquisition button, the image of the indent, with the relative hardness and diameter values with thousandth of micron, are sent to the PC or to the laptop.
   Through the setting of a tolerance value on the measurements to be made, the user will have the possibility to evaluate visually the accuracy of the indent, thanks to a "YES/NO" response which will appear in an unequivocal way on the monitor.
   Moreover it's possible to make appearing on the screen, in an automatic succession, the values of the last five hardness measurements made.

   With Brinell Check is possible to work up to 10 meters far from the work position thanks to the availability of Video Power cables and thanks to the software possibility of enlarging on the monitor, the label of values and the centre of pointing.
     The images with their content can be saved automatically in a predefined folder, while in a compatible file with Excel are archived all the information relative to: identification of the user (number or name), date/hour, parameters on the hardness test, measured hardness values and path of the saved image.
   The adopted technical-video solutions, the characteristics of the software and the excellent "quality-price" relation, make the Brinell Check one of the most performing tool still present in the sector.


   In the software supplied with the Brinell Check, it is possible to select the type of Brinell hardness to measure (Brinell or "calibrated shear pin"), the visualization of the label with the measurement made (dimensions, colours, font) and other selectable parameters, like:

  Settings on the hardness test made:

  1 - Diameter of the sphere (you can choose the value of the diameter of the sphere used for the
       hardness test between 1, 2, 2.5, 5 and 10 mm)
  2 - Load applied (from 1 to 3000 kg, or from 9,81 to 29430 Newton)
  3 - Duration of the test

     - Type of load applied (dynamic or static)
     - Type of indenter (normal or in carbide)
     - Type of material on which the test has been made (steel or cast iron)

  Settings of the possible measurements:

  4 - To show the label of the measurement with information about the diameter of the sphere/load
        applied/duration of the test
  5 - To modify the measurement tolerance
  6 - To show on the screen the latest 5 measurements
  7 - Calibration of the brightness

  It is also possible to select and automate some operations of external input, just pressing a  single button, such as:

  8 - To duplicate the image on the screen
  9 - To measure the indent
10 - To save the image selected in the format, with the options and with the name wished
11 - To export in an Excel table the measurements made
12 - To close the image after the measurement after a fixed waiting time
13 - To warn if the space on the disk is not enough to save the image

 MIN-MAX method to measure indents on surfaces with imperfections
Since often in the empiric working, for matters of time (but also of costs), materials not enough smooth and not standardized are used, some problems in the measurements.
For this reason we suggest this method (probably it will be the most used..!)
This method allows to have very reliable measurements, but you must wait for a few seconds more to visualize the indent with relate diameter and Hardness Brinell value.

 Settings saving in profiles
If measurements are made on different types of material, you need to save all parameters to use them in the future on the same type of material.
The Brinell profiles are designed specifically for this purpose, because when you find the ideal parameters to make your measurements, you can save and recall them whenever you need.

The PC / Laptop is not included.

   Brinell Check is provided with a little and hard case in printed aluminium, Power Carrying Case, with all the accessories and electric parts already installed (battery, battery-charger, USB interface, etc.) ready to be connected to a PC or laptop USB port (USB2.0) through its cable.
   The working autonomy of the Brinell Check is guaranteed for about four consecutive hours, while the reload last about eight hours directly connecting to a socket with a voltage of 100/240V 50/60Hz.
   Thanks to the potentialities of the software in outfit, linking with a special cable to the Power Carrying Case, it is also possible to use other video systems already existing in the agency to make various types of measurements, comparisons, fillings, etc.
