Hardness testing reinvented with the Internet of Things

Proceq has introduced its Equotip® Live IoT-based hardness tester that leverages smartphone and wireless technology to access data stored in the Cloud.

The new generation wireless impact device and mobile app – Equotip® Live – with real-time data sharing and cloud backup creates a 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, is the biggest innovation in hardness testing since the launch of the Equotip in 1975 says the company. 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. Data can also be shared by email.


This Industry 4.0 NDT hardness tester also features centralised report template and profile management, along with full data traceability, logbooks and continuous cloud backup to prevent data loss.
