Newage Testing Instruments New Portable Brinell Scanner

Aug 16, 2006: Newage Testing Instruments has released the B.O.S.S., model OS300-WT3, Brinell Optical Scanning System for automatic measurement of Brinell impressions. This instrument combines all the Brinell-measurement-accuracy capabilities of larger systems but combined with the much smaller Ultra-Mobile PC using Windows XP with a screen resolution of 800x480, memory of at least 512 megabytes, and 20-60 gigabytes of data storage. The computer measures 9" x 5.5" x 1" and the scanhead is 7" tall x maximum 2.5" diameter.

Operators can use the computer in either landscape or portrait format. The system has a touch screen display replacing a mouse/touchpad. A virtual keyboard screen can be switched on so descriptive information on the samples can be entered and saved in the database for each type of test part. A wireless connection allows data to be seamlessly transferred to a virtual network. The B.O.S.S. uses built-in LED illumination, minimizing the power draw on the computer batteries.
