The EQUOTIP 3 measures the Leeb value (L) for materials, which is a ratio of the impact velocity to the rebound velocity. This L value is then converted to standard hardness scales such as Rockwell, Brinell, Shore, and Vickers using conversion tables stored in the display unit and generated from the original Leeb block.

EQUOTIP 3 portable hardness testers can be used with many different Impact Devices and Support Rings that allow for measurement of a wide variety of part geometries.
