HI 1769-WS and 1769-2WS CompactLogix® Module
Small size, high performance!
Hardy HI 1769-WS and -2WS are single channel PLC-style weigh scale modules for use with the Allen-Bradley MicroLogix® 1500 and CompactLogix® controllers.
Super Easy Integration
- Free Add-On-Profiles
- Free Faceplate/AOIs for HMIs
- Direct Back-plane Connectivity
The HI 1769-WS and -2WS reads and conditions weight and diagnostic data from strain gauge load sensors or load cells up to one hundred times per second and communicates this data over the I/O chassis backplane to the PLC processor. The HI 1769-WS module reduces installation costs, as it needs no external stand-alone scale instrument with a wired communications link to the PLC.
High resolution enables the module to tolerate large dead loads and over sizing of the load sensors, while retaining a high level of usable resolution.
The WS module supplies 5 volts of DC excitation to drive up to four 350-ohm load sensors or load cells associated with a single scale. The 2WS supports up to eight 350-ohm load cells with two scales. Both will support additional load cells with an external power supply.
The HI 1769-WS incorporates Hardy Process Toolbox core features of
WAVERSAVER®, C2® electronic calibration INTEGRATED TECHNICIAN® (IT).
Rockwell Add-On-Profile (AOP)
Quickly and easily configure the HI 1769-WS for your application through PLC software on a PC. A face plate makes the modules incredibly easy to use with common weighing functions built into the faceplate.

• Remote Termination Assembly (-RTA)
The weigh scale module optional Remote Termination Assembly provides
connection points between the cable assembly to the module and individual
wires from the junction box, or load sensors, of up to two scales. The RTA is
designed for standard DIN mounting rails or standoffs. With an HI 1769-
RTA configuration, the weigh scale modules can be replaced without
disturbing the wiring.
• Cable (-C6 -DC6)
Hardy provides an optional 6-foot cable assembly from the weigh scale
module to the remote termination assembly for both single and dual
• Options Ordering
Options can be ordered at the same time the module is ordered by adding
the dash designators to the end of the module number.
