Weight Controllers Feature Allen-Bradley Remote I/O Communications

March 3, 2008

Only three inches deep, Hardy Instruments’ HI 4050 general-purpose 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. The HI 4050 weight controller includes WAVERSAVER® to eliminate the effects of surrounding vibration for fast, stable weight display, C2® electronic calibration without test weights, a Secure Digital (SD) based Secure Memory Module card for fast transfer of configuration data, and INTEGRATED TECHNICIAN® for system diagnostics and troubleshooting.
