Hardy Process Solutions adds PROFIBUS DP connectivity

By 16 June 2014

Hardy Process Solutions has announced the release of a PROFIBUS‐DP communications option for its field‐proven HI 6500 series of weight processors. The Hi 6500 series has a big, bright multi‐channel display and delivers fast, high‐resolution weight readings.

Weight processors are used as front ends to control systems or standalone for all types of general industrial weighing applications. Operating blind or with a display, they measure, condition and communicate weight without any need to control. The new HI 6500‐PB is designed to support process weighing applications such as inventory management, batch, blending, filling, dispensing, and check weighing.

HI6500Main72According to Karl Schwenkmeyer, General Manager, “The new HI 6500‐PB series sets the standard for meeting the process weighing needs for a low‐cost, fast, high‐resolution PROFIBUS weight processor.” The HI 6500 series is designed to meet the application needs of diverse industries, such as food processing, chemical and petrochemical and general manufacturing automation.

Process instrumentation can help improve processes and achieve operational excellence in the four major areas of the supply chain:

  1. STOCK ‐ accurate weight and level measurement/monitoring
  2. MAKE ‐ adaptable weight & rate material feed measurement/control
  3. PACK ‐ for robust rate & weight feed measurement/control
  4. SHIP ‐ off‐the‐shelf static and dynamic check weighing solutions
