Press Release Summary:
April 19, 2013 - Enabling use of C2®, eCAL™, and Integrated Technician® technologies, HI 6010 distributes excitation voltage to up to 4 load cells and transfers each load cell's performance characteristics and weight signals to weight controller. Unit is housed in NEMA 4X polycarbonate enclosure with threaded brass cover inserts, O-ring, and flangeless surface mounting for sanitary wash-down installation. Box is suited for batching/blending, filling/dispensing, level-by-weight, and check-weighing applications.
Original Press Release
New 6010 Summing Box from Hardy
Press release date: April 18, 2013
For Process Weighing, Batching/Blending, Filling/Dispensing, Level-by-Weight, and Check-weighing Applications
Hardy’s new HI 6010 Summing box is a critical component in a weighing system that enables use of Hardy’s core technologies - C2®, eCAL™, and Integrated Technician® (IT). The summing box distributes excitation voltage to up to four load cells and transfers each load cell’s performance characteristics and weight signals to the Hardy weight controller. A summing card with IT allows a weighing instrument operator to switch to the summing card’s internal test circuit and diagnose the entire weighing system from the front panel of the instrument or a remote location over the Internet. Individual load cells can be isolated from each other for weight and voltage readings, allowing a technician or operator to quickly and safely troubleshoot weighing system faults and anomalies.
The HI 6010 Summing box is available with a variety of options (e.g. with or without IT or trim pots for non-Hardy load cells) and ships in a NEMA 4X polycarbonate enclosure. The enclosure features a thick-wall design, threaded brass cover (on/off) inserts, an o-ring and ‘flangeless’ surface mounting for a long lasting, robust, sanitary wash-down installation. Each box comes with two packaged hole plugs and five cable grip fittings suitable for load cell cables with an outside diameter of 1/4 to 3/8 inches. A label is provided on the underside of the top cover to record load cell assemblies.
