Hardy Process Solutions introduces the HI6800 series of weight and application controllers that combines direct process control with fast, accurate, and stable weight data essential to profitable manufacturing operations.

Pre-programmed application packs simplify set-up and commissioning or customize controller programing to suit the specifics of critical manufacturing operations. Versatility is delivered thru a variety of optional configurations that include digital and analog I/O, DC relays, mapping, and up to four channels of scale inputs per instrument. 

Available in three form factors: 4.3-in. touch-display with tactile buttons, a 7-in. touch-screen display featuring full-color GUI or a DIN rail mount (no display), the HI6800 Series is ideal for any industrial weighing requirements.

“We designed these products with the latest dual-core processors, in a modular way that are ideal for supporting advanced weighing applications,” said Tim Norman, senior product manager for Hardy Process Solutions. “This offloads this specialized processing from the PLC, enabling both the PLC and the weight controller to each do what they do best. The weight controller can then serve up the data to the PLC optimizing manufacturing applications.”

Two New Instruments

The Model HI6800 is designed for weight-based control of applications such as level monitoring, set-point control, static checkweighing, and piece/part counting. The model features an optional 4.3-in. color TFT touchscreen for operation and setup. It comes with a dual-core processor, two Ethernet ports, a microSD card slot, USB-C port, two digital outputs, two digital inputs, and a single analog scale input. The dual 10/100 Mbps Ethernet ports with an integrated network switch are ideal for simultaneously linking the instrument to both control and information networks for monitoring performance, diagnostics, and process statistics. Data from the instrument can be easily served up to the Intranet, Extranet, VPN, and the Internet by utilizing the EtherNet/IP or Modbus TCP/IP communication protocols. The HI6800 is available to ship now.
