HARDY Instruments, represented by Scale Components , has announced the availability of a Profibus network interface for its 3000 Series multi-scale weight controller, filler/dispenser and master display.
Profibus allows the fast transfer of time-critical application information at speeds of up to 12Mbaud.
A single Profibus network card (-PB) representing a single node will interface with all four channels of Hardy's HI 3030 multi-scale weight controller.
Up to 15 additional multiscale controllers, totaling up to 64 different scales, can be linked (to a single node) using DeviceNet or Hardy Instruments' Control-Link Ethernet connection to the same Profibus card.
Hardy instruments, an ISO 9001 certified company, has been a leader in weighing solutions for more than 80 years and is best known for its innovative approaches to precision instrumentation for process weighing and vibration monitoring applications.
