LS252DC feature introduction

LS252DC is an advanced lipstick-sized metal hardness tester which incorporates the impact device and controller into one unit. It easily fits in a pocket or your palm. It used lastest dual-coil technology which makes the tester to have extraordinary accuracy: ±6 HL and good repeatability:6HL. It adopts orientation sensors that will compensate the measurement errors in different impact directions automatically to ensure the accurate data, with OLED display screen. Equipped with impact device DC, the Leeb hardness tester is suitable for very confined spaces such as holes, cylinders or for internal measurements on assembled machines. The battery can be charged simply from USB port, also it has a customer re-calibration function.


LS252DC Leeb hardness tester is suitable for testing the hardness of materials such as steel, cast steel, alloy steel, stainless steel, gray cast iron, ductile iron, cast aluminum alloy, copper-zinc alloy, copper-tin alloy, pure copper and forged steel. The instrument is suitable for very confined spaces such as holes, cylinders or for internal measurements on assembled machines.

Small size, easy operation

Thanks to the small size as lipstick, the LS252DC is simple to operate and easily to be carried out

High accuracy with patented dual-coil technology

Cutting-edge dual-coil technology bring the tester extraordinary measurement accuracy and good repeatability

Direction sensor inside the probe will compensate the measurement errors in different impact directions automatically

The instrument can measure at any angles. Featuring a built-in direction sensor, the probe can automatically compensate the measurement errors in different impact directions. Multi-angle measurement is easy

Capable of measuring a wide range of metal materials

With 10 built-in metal materials, including steel, alloy tool steel, stainless steel and grey cast iron, the instrument can be used in a wide range of applications and industries to meet the demands of everyday work

Impact device is made of Tungsten carbide

Impact device DC is partly made of Tungsten carbide, and its hardness is almost equal to the diamond.

Conversions to different hardness scales

LS252DC hardness tester provides a variety of hardness scales, which can be converted between Leeb (HL), Vickers (HV), Brinell (HB), Shore (HS) and Rockwell (HRA/HRB/HRC)

USB port is used to charge to battery

Using rechargeable lithium battery, the battery can be charged simply from USB port.

Customer re-calibration allowed

Users can calibrate the standard parts to reduce the error


Ultra-portable, intelligent Leeb DC probe with a clean user-interface


The small hardness tester lets you keep it in your pocket for a more streamlined workflow


Equipped with standard Leeb hardness standard test block, the user can save the cost of subsequent test block consumables

  • Loading: Take down the loading stick and push the impact body forward until it to be locked

  • Positioning: Press the probe firmly against the surface of the object to be measured and keep it still.

  • Measurement: Press the release button on the top of the probe to measure the hardness of the object.





  1. When measuring, the distance between any two indentations should not be less than 3mm, and the distance between the center of the indentation and the edge of the object to be measured should not be less than 5mm.

  2. After use, the impact body should be loosened.

  3. The use of various lubricants is strictly prohibited in the impact device.

  1. What is the thinnest thickness a durometer can measure and what is the thinnest thickness after coupling?

    Leeb hardness tester is only suitable for large and heavy workpieces, small and thin parts must be coupled to a solid support for testing; DC-type impact device is measured by the minimum mass of 5kg, the minimum thickness of 25mm, if the weight or thickness does not meet the requirements, must be coupled to a solid support for testing, coupled to the minimum thickness of the measured object is 3mm.
