Original Press Release:

Hardy Instruments' HI 4050 Line of Weight Controllers Now Features Allen-Bradley Remote I/O Communications

San Diego, CA (long version) - Only three inches deep, the HI 4050 general-purpose weight controller is the first of a new line of modular controllers by Hardy Instruments. It is used in tank farm, batching/blending, filling/dispensing, check weighing, level by weight, and force measurement applications. The weight controller is now available with Allen-Bradley Remote I/O (RIO) network communications.

Allen-Bradley RIO is a high-level network used to communicate with Allen-Bradley (Rockwell) Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC). The HI 4050 RIO interface is a direct replacement for Hardy's HI 2151/30WC and HI 2110WI weighing instruments with RIO, as well as some competitors' weighing instruments with RIO.

To meet your specific installation needs, the HI 4050 is available with AC or DC power and in panel, remote or blind DIN rail mounting packaging configurations. Installations are simplified with no special tools required to cut rectangular holes. Just use the included template to drill standard holes and install. The controller includes a standard Ethernet 10/100 Base T with an embedded web server and an RS 232 printer or scoreboard display port. Optional network communications over Ethernet/IP, DeviceNet, Modbus TCP or Analog are also available.

The HI 4050 weight controller includes Hardy Instruments' core technologies:
o WAVERSAVER®, which eliminates the effects of surrounding vibration to provide a fast, stable weight display
o C2®, which allows for electronic calibration without the need for test weights
o Secure Memory Module with Secure Digital (SD) card (SMM®-SD), which allows manual transfer of configuration data to another instrument or PC using SD technology
o INTEGRATED TECHNICIAN® (IT) for system diagnostics and troubleshooting

Hardy Instruments has been a leader in weighing solutions for over 85 years and is best known for its innovative approaches to precision weighing and vibration monitoring equipment. An ISO 9001-certified manufacturer, Hardy Instruments is based in San Diego, California. For more information about Hardy Instruments, please visit www.hardyinstruments.com or call 1-800-821-5831.
