Houston, Texas – MFE Inspection Solutions, a premier industrial inspection solutions provider, is excited to unveil the BAQ alphaDur Mini II, a cutting-edge advancement in Ultrasonic Contact Impedance (UCI) hardness testing technology. This groundbreaking device significantly surpasses its predecessor by incorporating a more potent battery, expanded memory capacity, and an enhanced display with a larger size and higher resolution ensuring even greater ease of use.

The alphaDur mini II introduces key advancements in portable hardness testing that significantly benefit inspectors. The enhanced 3.5"-TFT-LCD color display with 640 x 480 pixels offers superior clarity for easy data reading in diverse lighting conditions, crucial for fieldwork efficiency. Also, its memory expansion reduces the need for frequent data transfers and extended testing periods.

With state-of-the-art technology and the widely used USB Type-C port, the alphDUR mini II modernizes data management with options for direct data transfer to the PC and streamlined charging. This, combined with a significant battery life improvement of approximately 10 hours, ensures prolonged operational capabilities without interruption.

Key upgrades include:

• Enhanced Display: Transitioning from a 2.4" color LCD to a 3.5"-TFT-LCD color display, providing clearer, more detailed visuals in almost all environmental conditions.
• Expanded Memory: The leap from 256 MB to 8 GB eMMC-Flash-Memory allows for over 1 million measurements, facilitating extensive data collection and analysis.
• Advanced Connectivity: With the new USB type C port, the existing USB functions have also been extended so that direct data transfer from the alphaDUR mini II to the PC is now possible. This significantly increases the flexibility of data management.
• Extended Battery Life: A new 6800 mAh Li-ion battery extends the operating time to approximately 10 hours, ensuring reliability over longer inspection periods.
Upcoming Enhancements: Post-launch updates will equip the alphaDUR mini II with additional capabilities, such as Bluetooth 5.0, BLE technology.
