Rockwell Solutions from HARDY


Hardy Process Solutions

As a Global Partner of the Rockwell Automation Encompass PartnerNetwork™ program, Hardy is better positioned to deliver seamless solutions with direct PLC backplane connectivity and Add On Profiles (AOP). Through this partnership, Hardy provides Rockwell Automation customers with Encompass Approved best-of-breed industrial weighing technology to provide the most comprehensive measurement and control solutions available worldwide.

PLC Weighing Modules

Hardy’s single-slot PLC/PAC modules read and condition data from strain gage load cells and communicate it over the I/O chassis backplane to the processor. They provide basic weight data or are loaded with sophisticated algorithms to perform application-specific industrial weighing processes from simple batch weighing to loss-in-weight control, filling or dispensing. Modules are available for Allen-Bradley® ControlLogix, CompactLogix, MicoLogix 1500, Micro800 or SLC500 chassis

Hardy’s single (HI 1756-WS) and dual (HI-1756-2WS) are weigh scale modules that mount directly into an Allen-Bradley ControlLogix® PLC Chassis. They read weight and diagnostic data from one set or two separate sets of strain gauge load sensors or load cells and communicate this data over the I/O chassis backplane to the ControlLogix Processor.

SLC™ 500

The Hardy HI 1746-WS is the only weight processor for Rockwell Automation’s Allen-Bradley SLC™ 500 Series. The HI 1746-WS is designed to be easily plugged into the back plane of an SLC™ 5/02, 5/03, 5/04 or 5/05 programmable controller.

Easy 8

Micro800™ Programmable Controller

The Hardy EASY 8 is a powerful weight processing module that calculates and digitizes net and gross weight data from Hardy load cells (or industry standard load cells) and sends this data directly to the backplane of a Rockwell Automation’s Micro800™ Programmable Controller.
