Hardy Doubles Speed of HI 6500-XP Extreme Weight Processor
Our partner Hardy Process Solutions doubles the update rate of their HI6500 weight processor. This gives users faster and more stable weight information in filling, dispensing and check weighing applications.
Ideal for Checkweighing, Filling and Dispensing
“A high update rate allows this weight processor to provide stable weight readings, much faster to a PLC, resulting in tighter feed control limits, and all of this under almost any adverse weighing condition.” says Tim Norman, product manager instrumentation for Hardy. “It’s ideal for high-speed filling, dispensing and check weighing, where material is fed and weighed in motion at high speeds.”
“Material motion and machine vibration cause many weighing instruments to have lengthy settling times or read inaccurately. The fast update rate of the HI 6500-XP minimises the effects of in-motion weighing, providing a much faster settling time, better stability and tighter control.”
Many weight controllers and processors carry out the A/D conversion at one frequency, and then process the weight and communications ports at a much slower rate typically 20 to 50Hz, sending the PLC an update every 20 to 50 milliseconds. The HI 6500-XP is different: A/D conversion, weight processing and the communications port all update at 660Hz, providing a new weight reading locally (at the Instrument) and remotely (in the PLC) every 1.5 milliseconds. This results in better product quality and improves raw material yields.
Speed With Accuracy
The HI 6500-XP is a perfect fit for applications where speed and accuracy are paramount to control and quality, such as batching, blending, filling, dispensing and check weighing. The HI 6500-XP has the best price and performance ratio available, allowing users to save money without compromising speed, accuracy or stability.
