Only 3-inches-deep, Hardy Instruments’ new HI 4050 general-purpose weight controller is easily configured to meet your specific application needs. Available with AC or DC power and in panel, remote or blind DIN rail mounting, the HI 4050 installs fast with no special holes to cut. The controller comes standard with Ethernet and optional Ethernet/IP or DeviceNet. It 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.
