The PosiTector SHD Shore Hardness Durometer measures the indentation hardness of non-metallic materials such as polymers, elastomers and rubber.
It can be used as a handheld instrument or placed in an optional test stand to reduce operator influence.

Two models are available for different hardness ranges: Shore A and Shore D.

Features & Details

  • User-adjustable measurement time with onscreen countdown 
  • Internal memory, statistics and USB port
  • HiLo alarm audibly and visually alerts when measurements exceed user-specified limits
  • Includes test block to verify operation
  • Compatible with PosiSoft suite of solutions, including the updated PosiTector App

The digital PosiTector SHD has many advantages over the analog (dial) type Shore Hardness Durometers:

  • Memory to save readings for convenient archival or reporting
  • Test time  can be set which begins counting down on the screen
  • Auto Sub-Batch feature creates a new sub-batch, conveniently grouping readings after the desired number of measurements is taken (advanced model)
  • Auto Ignore 20/90  to omit unreliable readings below 10 and above 90


  • Easy-to-read digital display
  • User-adjustable measurement time with onscreen countdown to conform to national and international standards
  • Flashing display – ideal for noisy environments
  • Enhanced one-handed menu navigation
