The Elcometer, Inc 3045 pendulum hardness tester uses infrared technology to measure coating hardness, providing a fully automated Persoz or König pendulum hardness test without human intervention, ensuring more accurate, repeatable and reproducible results.

Users fit the pendulum on to the loading pins, load the sample and close the door. The pendulum automatically moves to the start position, the sample table rises and the test begins. Maximum sample size is 200 × 110 × 14 mm.

The instrument performs a full calibration routine and automatically adjusts to meet the specified standard. Batch memory stores all test data for output to a PC via the company’s ElcoMaster data management software. An integrated, dual-axis bubble level on the specimen table enables users to quickly identify whether the table is correctly aligned and, if required, adjust the rotating feet at the base of the unit.
