HI 6200 PROFINET Single Channel Weight Processor

January 23, 2020   Don Horne

Hardy Process Solutions has introduced a new product in the Hardy HI 6200 single-channel weight processor series designed for PROFINET Industrial Ethernet networks.

Operating within PROFINET Conformance Class A (CC-A) as single network devices, the new HI 6200 is ideal for OEMs and System Integrators building machinery where accurate, stable and fast weight data are critical components to successful designs.

Ultra-compact at just two inches wide and three inches high (40 sq. cm), the HI 6200 series are designed for machine level integration in process skids or manufacturing equipment. The HI 6200 saves cabinet space to allow for high density panel design over traditional weighing instrumentation, reducing both machine cost and control cabinet footprint.

A high-definition colour TFT display provides intuitive operations and crisp, easy to read measurements and instrument status. An embedded Webserver makes the device easy to set-up, monitor and control from any web browser on the user’s network.

“The new PROFINET version of the HI 6200 is designed for users of Siemens PACs,” said Tim Norman, senior product manager, “which have predominant market share in Europe, Asia and parts of Latin America.  With IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) compatibility, advanced diagnostics and a user-friendly colour touch screen interface, the HI 6200 has the robust features, high-performance and functionality to enhance any weighing application.”

The product is ideal for applications in the food & beverage, chemical processing, consumer goods packaging, medical and pharmaceutical, and other manufacturing and processing industries.

Powerful state-of-the-art 32-bit ARM Core processing, combined with Hardy’s WAVERSAVER filtering technology ensure accurate, stable and fast weight readings in even the most adverse conditions where mechanical vibrations can plague process control.  The colour, touch-screen interface or the built-in Webserver allows anyone with basic scale knowledge to set-up and operate the instrument without having to read a manual or receive instruction.

The HI 6200 PROFINET also includes Hardy Process Toolbox, a set of Hardy exclusive productivity tools featuring C2 weightless calibration, INTEGRATED TECHNICIAN instrument diagnostics, and a suite of control integration tools such as a PROFINET GSD file.

Other models in the HI 6200 series include an EtherNet/IP®weight processor and an Analog 4-20 mA weight transmitter.
