New series of EtherNet/IP enabled weight processors

05 November 2013 - 1013 views

SAN DIEGO, CA - Hardy Process Solutions has announced the new HI 6500 series of EtherNet/IP® enabled weight processors with a Rockwell Add-On-Profile (AOP). 

They have a big, bright multi-channel display and deliver fast, high-resolution weight readings. They also feature alternative communication options.

Weight processors are used as front ends to control systems or standalone for all types of general weighing applications. Operating blind or with a display, they measure, condition and communicate weight without any need to control.  Hardy Process Solutions’ new 6500 series family of weight processors is designed to support process weighing applications such as inventory management, batch, blending, filling, dispensing, and check weighing.

According to Karl Schwenkmeyer, General Manager, “The new HI 6500 series sets the standard for meeting the process weighing needs for a low-cost, fast, high-resolution EtherNet/IP® weight processor.   HI 6500 series meets the application requirements for diverse industries such as food processing, chemical and petrochemical and general manufacturing automation. 

New Weight Processor
The HI 6500 series delivers stable processed rate with a resolution of 1:10:000, and an update speed of 110 updates per second (processor, display and communications). They enhance the productivity of process manufacturing systems where fast, precise weight-based controls are critical. They offer you many communication choices including EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP & RTU, and Analog 4-20mA.  Hardy offers easy integration to a Rockwell PLC with a Rockwell Add-On-Profile compatible with RSLogix.

With the largest display in the industry for an instrument of this class, the HI 6500 has a 140° viewing angle for viewing up to 100 ft. away.  To save space and energy, the HI 6500 series can deliver the weight readings of up to four instruments on one display panel simultaneously. Users can name their display inputs for easy ID and rearrange them in any order.

The HI 6500 series also has the Hardy Process Toolbox, including C2® electronic calibration, INTEGRATED TECHNICIAN® diagnostics, and WAVERSAVER® vibration immunity.

About Hardy Process Solutions
Hardy Process Solutions has established itself as an industry leader in the weighing automation world by providing highly accurate precision measurements, while seamlessly integrating process weight signals into a Rockwell plant control system.
