Weight processing module easy to mount and maintain


A new plug-in module for Rockwell’s POINT I/O chassis, the fastest growing segment of Rockwell controllers, has been introduced by Hardy Process Solutions, the Hardy HI 1734-WS POINT I/O Series weight processing module.

This module is exceptionally easy to mount, set up, calibrate, and maintain. The HI 1734-WS is a true weight processing module designed for POINT I/O systems, as opposed to passing raw A/D counts through to the PLC for interpretation as in competitive models. It is easy to configure using a Rockwell Automation Add-On-Profile (AOP) and an easy-to-use Faceplate.

The HI 1734-WS is suitable for applications where fast, stable weight data and low cost of ownership are important. It is designed to be a high-performance replacement for analog transmitters with the advantages of noise filtering and vastly superior scale settling times. 

It is ultra-compact, reducing machine cost and control cabinet footprint. The module also includes Hardy Process Toolbox features: C2 weightless calibration, Integrated Technician system diagnostics, and WAVERSAVER immunity from mechanical vibration.

HI 1734-WS highlights include:

  • Fast and EASY to install and commission by snapping modules into terminal blocks onto a POINT I/O Network Adaptor, then using Rockwell AOP file to set up and configure in RSLogix or Studio5000 with no programming required.
  • Rockwell’s Adaptor Products allow connectivity to EtherNet/IP, DeviceNet, and ControlNet in linear, star and ring topologies.
  • Ultra-low profile – just 0.5x3”
  • Energy efficient – consumes just 1W when powering Hardy IT junction boxes and up to four load cells.
