It has been announced that Hardy Process Solutions has added over 300 Integrated Panel Solutions (IPS) to its product portfolio. Hardy IPS simplify the installation process by delivering weighing instrumentation pre-installed into a variety of enclosures; complete with wiring, waterproof glands, and full testing.
Customers benefit by receiving an out of the box solution, and avoid having to coordinate between third party component suppliers and panel shops to create a product that is ready to install.
Manufactured in the US in a UL508A Certified Panel Shop, in type four or fourX enclosures, IPS accommodate weighing instrumentation and peripherals including buttons, switches, relays, and summing cards. IPS are delivered in a variety of materials, shapes, and types with technically advanced weighing instruments, complete with a wide range of interface options for automation and process control systems. With features such as push buttons, switches, relays, and tower lights built in, IPS are easy to integrate into complex industrial manufacturing operations.
Hardy supports most major industrial protocols and is Rockwell Automation’s only weighing partner to achieve the Premier Integration status (the highest level of integration with Rockwell Automation ControlLogix and CompactLogix systems).
Tim Norman, Senior Product Manager for Hardy Process Solutions, stated: “By offering hundreds of pre-designed configurations, we simplify integration into customers’ manufacturing systems, saving time in configuration and installation. With Add on Profiles and Faceplates, we enable manufacturers to get up and running faster and with just one supplier.”
