Original Press Release:
New Blind Remote Option for the Hardy Filler/Dispenser
San Diego, CA - Hardy Instruments is pleased to announce the availability of its award winning Filler/Dispenser Controller in a blind remote configuration. The controller can be placed in inaccessible areas and still be programmed and operated via Ethernet with its embedded web server. Because this configuration is DC powered, you can power it from its standard Devicenet communications port or an external DC source. It has a power/diagnostics LED added to the front panel, while the keyboard and LCD display have been removed.
The IR port has been retained to allow wireless communications and control with a PDA. Inputs (- JB) for three additional load cells are added to eliminate the need for an external junction box. An environmental rear cap is available for both the remote and full console versions, giving each a Nema 4X/IP66 rating providing protection from dust and hose directed water. The rear cap has 3 pre-drilled holes and includes a gasket, 2 cable grips (power & load cell wiring) and a hole plug. An AC power option is also available for the Blind Remote controller.
