Feeder Control Module

August 22, 2011
Easy to install and simple to set up, Hardy’s new HI 1769-FC Weigh Feeder Control Module mounts directly into an Allen-Bradley® MicroLogix™ 1500 or CompactLogix™ chassis and supports Add-on Profile (AOP) set-up, making installation and programming in a “SNAP and a CLICK.” Used in new feeder control applications, retrofitting inaccurate volumetric feeders and replacing outdated controllers in gravimetric systems, the single-scale HI 1769-FC is a powerful building block that works with the PLC rack I/O to control many devices such as augers, vibratory and belt-based feeders, as well as proprietary feeder designs.
