Brinell Check Video Measuring Instrument
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 0,5 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.
WORKING OF BRINELL CHECK SOFTWAREThe 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
CALIBRATED SHEAR PIN:
– 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
