Hardy Check Weigher – Open Source with off the shelf Allen Bradley Components

Hardy HI 4050CW Checkweigher AwardWhen you need a proven solution for a specific process weighing application, Hardy offers innovative application-specific bundles of products to meet your needs. Based on precision instrumentation and sensors, Hardy application bundles, such as our checkweighing systems are designed to provide seamless integration into your industrial weighing system.

Dynamic Check Weigher Series

Hardy Dynamic Check Weigher Series

High Performance Dynamic Checkweighing

Open-Source, Off-the-Shelf Rockwell Components, Seamless Integration into Connected Enterprise
Hardy's Dynamic Series of checkweighing machinery is built using off-the shelf components, with controls based on a Rockwell Automation's CompactLogix platform,providing a standardized open source architecture that is flexible enough to meet both current and future control needs.

Weight processing is managed by Hardy’s HI 4050CW weight controller. Sampling weight data at 4,800 times per second, the HI4050CW is capable of providing enough weighments to accurately categorize packages weighing from 5g to 225kg at speeds up to 350 packs per minute.

Hardy Dynamic checkweighers are built using a Rockwell CompactLogix® platform running Studio5000® making them the easiest to integrate, upgrade and modify. The GUI uses FactoryTak View software, giving the user the ability to share and modify information presented on the machine’s HMI to the larger Connected Enterprise®. Extra onboard I/O and the ability to expand the rack provide a future proof control platform that is ready to accommodate additional upstream and downstream closed-loop controls, as well as peripherals such as metal detection and x-rays.  All data tags are available to Enterprise wide software.

Gearing and motor are integrated into the roller. Extremely efficient with no exposed moving parts, motorized drive rollers are available in a variety of speed and torque ratings so they can be tailored to the specific requirements of your application. Available in stainless steel the series is rated for IP66 wash-down environments. Smart drives eliminate the possibility of over-torque or binding that could cause motor or belt damage, creating a safer and higher reliability conveying system.

Belts can be removed, inspected, replaced and cleaned without the use of tools. A simple cam-lock secures belts in position and at the correct tension – making change-overs fast and easy.

The Dynamic C, S and I series are built using welded Stainless Steel tube construction, created a very ridged and long lasting frame that will withstand even the most abusive environments. Built to handle virtually every product in any environment, only simple modifications are required to change bed widths and lengths. The Dynamic L series is designed for very heavy packages and therefore is constructed of steel channel.

Intuitive menus presented on a large Allen Bradly PanelView Plus® HMI provide a comfortable environment for setting up product recipes, tuning the machine for optimum performance and setting up the scale system. Use Hardy's exclusive C2® for automatic scale calibration.  Use the Internal Trigger mode and eliminate the need for a photo-eye.

Full Statistics & Diagnostics PackagesFULL STATISTICS & DIAGNOSTICS PACKAGES
The Diagnostics Section allows users to visualize the process and make adjustments.  This saves so much time over the guesswork that is required with other checkweigher machinery.

All the process performance statistics are calculated and available on the network. Because the machine is open source,  use the data to optimize your process upstream.

HI 4050CW Check Weighing Bundle

Hardy HI 4050CW Check Weighing Bundle

Give Your Check Weighing an EDGE

How important is using a Hardy Check Weighing bundle in your process?

We’ve done the math for you:

  • Your system produces 250 cans packs per minute with an uptime of 85%/year
  • Overfill is 2 grams per pack
  • Product cost of $0.001 per gram
  • Overfill cost per year = $223,380
  • Reduction of just 1 gram overfill per pack =$111,690 savings per year

The high speed HI 4050CW check weighing system can process up to 250 high resolution (1:30:000) weight measurements per second. The 4050CW consists of a special version of the HI 4050 weight controller connected to up to four analog load cells and a Hardy junction box.

The HI 4050CW is perfect for building new systems for either static or dynamic check weighing or retrofitting the weight electronics of older, less reliable systems.

The 4050CW breaks the traditional analog strain gauge “speed barrier”, without the cost of MFR (Magnetic Force Restoration or other similar high speed/resolution technologies) yet it still delivers accuracies of up to 0.01% of full sensor capacity.

Accessibility – The embedded EtherNet communications port in the HI 4050 weight controller enables users to easily share data across a production facility, eliminating the time and costs associated with new network wiring.

Smart features of the HI 4050CW include EDGE detection, an algorithm that optimizes when weight readings are captured:

  • Automatic EDGE detection starts weight processing the instant a load settles onto the scale by monitoring changes in the signal waveform from connected load point.
  • Also works in conjunction with up to two additional external sensors such as photo-eyes to optimize process timing of weight readings.

Connect the HI 4050CW to up to four ADVANTAGE® load points and a Hardy IT junction box for high speed, high resolution weight readings compatible with C2 calibration.
