Configurable Weight Controllers with Built-in Applications

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:

  1. Decide if you need a standalone unit or plug-in for a PLC

  2. Specify it with or without a display

  3. Choose either AC or DC power

  4. Add some Digital I/O

  5. Select a communication network: DeviceNet, EtherNet/IP, ControlNet, Allen-Bradley Remote I/O, Profibus, Modbus TCP/IP, Serial or Analog

  6. 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.

  1. Feeder control

  2. Dispensing/dosing

  3. Filling

  4. Rate control by weight

  5. check weighing

Finally, select the product that best fits your application.
