The 3-in.-deep HI 4050 general-purpose weight controller is the first of a new line of modular controllers. It is used in tank farm, batching/blending, filling/dispensing, check weighing, level by weight, and force measurement applications. The weight controller is now available with Profibus DP network communications. The controller’s Profibus interface has passed testing and is certified by Profibus Nutzerorganisation e. V. that it meets all test specifications for a Profibus DP slave device. The unit is available with AC or DC power and in panel, remote, or blind DIN rail mounting packaging configurations. Installations are simplified with no special tools required to cut rectangular holes. The controller includes a standard Ethernet 10/100 Base T with an embedded web server and an RS-232 printer or scoreboard display port. Optional network communications over Ethernet/IP, DeviceNet, Modbus TCP, or analog are also available.
