Multi-scale analog communication for weight controllers

February 19, 2007

Hardy Instruments announces the availability of analog output communications for its HI 3030 Series of multi-scale weight controllers. The analog option provides two independent outputs with a choice of gross, net, rate-of-change or mapped total weight as both current (0-20 or 4–20mA) or voltage (0-5 or 0-10 VDC). The HI 3030 can hold up to two cards providing a total of four independent analog outputs. Like Hardy’s other interface option cards Ethernet IP, ControlNet, Allen-Bradley® RIO and Profibus, All parameters can be “mapped” (assigned) to the analog outputs. Each analog output can be assigned to any of the instruments four-scale channels.
