Edge on Up PT50 Sharpness Tester
THE PT50 SERIES...
If you're a professional, an enthusiast or a home chef, you're at the right place!
…and every Edge On Up instrumentation user is part of the BESS worldwide community. Only the BESS, in conjunction with Edge On Up instrumentation, enables you to not only measure the sharpness of an edge but to numerically quantify that sharpness level. The BESS gives sharpeners everywhere a voice and a means of communicating sharpness values. Now you can talk, think, compare and notate sharpness levels with every edge you own or sharpen.
All PT50 Series Instruments utilize EOU's exclusive "Max Force" analytical software algorithm to capture and log crucial edge information. PT50 Series instruments use the same, quick & easy, three button operation and (2) AAA battery power (included). Engineered and certified Aluminum Test Fixtures include pre-loaded 125 measurement test media canisters and Clip Bases come with 25 disposable test media clips. Disposable test media clips do not yet have BESS Certification. All PT50 Series model instruments have been tested and certified by BESS Universal for use with BESS Certified Test Media canisters.
The PT50A is our PT50 Series crossover product with the industrial world. It is the only PT50 Series product that is warranted for commercial/industrial use (3 years). The PT50A features a heavy steel measurement platform, an industrial strain sensor, our fastest processor and 1 gram of resolution. While it is rated for up to 3000 gram loads it will very accurately measure laboratory edges that measure only a few grams.
This portable and lightweight design has found it's way onto factory, hospital, and laboratory floors across the US. The PT50A package includes our Aluminum Test Fixture and our Disposable Clip system giving manufacturers, and those sharpeners who will have only the best, maximum latitude in measuring standard and non-standard cutting tools and edges.
This instrument is the direct replacement for our original PT50 which is currently at work throughout the US and 17 countries world-wide. With a faster processor and simpler operation the PT50B is the workhorse instrument for professional sharpeners, knife enthusiasts and woodworkers. The PT50B has a steel measurement platform and delivers 5 grams of resolution with a 1 year warranty. 5 grams of resolution is more than adequate for all the sharpening room discoveries you will soon be making!
The PT50B includes a knife fulcrum and our Aluminum Test Fixture. The PT50B can easily use our Disposable Clip system if purchased separately. The clip system is not only versatile, super fast and simple but a real advantage for anyone with diminished eyesight and/or hand and finger dexterity.
