|New generation wireless impact device and mobile app – Equotip® Live – with real-time data sharing and cloud backup creates new industry standard in portable hardness testing.
The world’s first full Internet of Things (IoT) / Industry 4.0 portable hardness testing solution, Equotip® Live, has been launched today by Proceq, global leader in portable measurement solutions for non-destructive materials testing.
This is the biggest innovation in hardness testing since the launch of the Equotip in 1975. Equotip Live has been developed for the Internet of Things by leveraging smartphone technology – today’s standard for powerful productivity apps – and wireless technology, to eliminate the need for cables. It harnesses the cloud where data is stored and accessible from anywhere, just like with e-banking.
Equotip Live is simple to use and redefines intuitiveness in portable hardness testing. Reports can be shared immediately via the app or the secure Proceq Live cloud using any internet browser.
Proceq CEO Ralph Mennicke said: “Equotip Live is a synonym for future-proof portable hardness testing. We are offering best-in-class accuracy, unique ease of measurement and the ability to share data - live and on a broad scale. On many fronts, Equotip Live will set new standards within portable NDT.”
Marcel Poser, Proceq Executive Chairman and Tectus Group CEO commented: “Our investment in delivering advanced solutions is relentless and will continue to leverage benefits of next generation technology for the sensor and measurement space. The R&D team is already working on further innovations which will also reflect the Tectus Group’s work at its Tectus Dreamlab Singapore innovation hub.”
