Why build a weighing application from scratch when Hardy has already done it for you? OEMs and machine builders often need a weighing solution that can not only be customized to fit application requirements but also has weighing application functions built-in.
Customizable built-in applications include feeder control, dispensing, filling, rate control by weight and check weighing.
To determine a product fit, first, you would configure one of our weight controllers to suit your customer’s application:
- Decide if you need a standalone unit or plug-in for a PLC
- Specify it with or without a display
- Choose either AC or DC power
- Add some Digital I/O
- Select a communication network: DeviceNet, EtherNet/IP, ControlNet, Allen-Bradley Remote I/O, Profibus, Modbus TCP/IP, Serial or Analog
- Choose between a panel/remote mount, a DIN rail mount, and a wall mount. With a display, you choose either to panel-mount the entire assembly, or to mount the controller housing assembly remotely.
Next, select the application that fits your requirements.
- Feeder control
- Rate control by weight
- check weighing
Finally, select the product that best fits your application.
