Hardy offers C2® and INTEGRATED TECHNICIAN certified Junction Boxes, Summing cards and C2® cable to allow calibration up to 4X faster and 7X safer than traditional methods. The Hardy C2® certified junction box contains circuitry in a waterproof enclosure, which distributes the excitation voltage to up to four load points, and transfers each load point’s performance characteristics and weight signals to the weight controller.
The junction box allows an instrument operator to switch in an internal test circuit to test the stability of the cable from the junction box to the “IT” equipped weighing instrument - without it being opened. In addition, individual load sensors can be isolated for weight and voltage readings from the weighing instrument’s front panel. Junction boxes that feature an expansion port allow connection of up to 8 load cells to a single weighing instrument.
