Weight Controller Features Optional ControlNet Interface
Only three inches deep, Hardy Instruments’ HI 4050 general-purpose weight controller is now available with a ControlNet network interface. ControlNet allows the fast transfer of time-critical application information at 5 Mbit/sec in a redundant, deterministic and predictable manner. Information can be transmitted to up to 98 additional nodes at distances of 250 to 5,000 meters. The interface comes with two BNC convertors for cable redundancy.
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 (IT) for system diagnostics and troubleshooting. It comes standard with EtherNet, and optional DeviceNet, ControlNet, EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP, Profibus, Allen-Bradley Remote I/O, or Analog.
