Hardy’s HI 1769-FC Weigh Feeder Control Module mounts directly into an Allen-Bradley MicroLogix 1500 or CompactLogix chassis and supports Add-on Profile (AOP) set-up, making installation and programming in a “SNAP and a CLICK”.
Used in new feeder control applications, retrofitting inaccurate volumetric feeders and replacing outdated controllers in gravimetric systems, the single-scale HI 1769-FC is a powerful building block that works with the PLC rack I/O to control many devices such as augers, vibratory and belt-based feeders, as well as proprietary feeder designs. This rate controller features true five-point automatic rate calibration, automatic feeder refill, and various alarms including rate tolerance and disturbance utilizing the PLC’s rack I/O.
The HI 1769-FC also includes the company's core technologies of WAVERSAVER to eliminate the effects of surrounding vibration for fast, stable weight display, INTEGRATED TECHNICIAN (IT) for system diagnostics and troubleshooting, and C2 electronic calibration without test weights when used with Hardy ADVANTAGE load cells.
