HIBSX - Hardy Low-Profile Washdown Bench Scale

HIBSX - Hardy Low-Profile Washdown Bench Scale

Hardy HIBSX Bench Scales are easy to clean, low-profile stainless steel washdown bench scales. The HIBSX series offers simplicity and robust performance for light duty industrial weighing applications. With an optimized internal 'X' design, the scales reduce the time required to clean them while still offering one of the lowest profiles in the industry.

Made in the USA, all Hardy HIBSX Bench Scales come standard in 12”x12” and 24" x 24" sizes, ranging in capacity from 10 lbs – 1300 lbs (5 kg  to 590 kg). 

Hardy HIBSX Bench Scales come with RoHS compliant 304SS stainless steel hardware, frames and platters. Users of the 12 x 12-inch scale may choose between stainless steel hermetically sealed, IP68/69K, C2® load cells OR aluminum, environmentally sealed, IP67 C2®  load cells, depending on their application.  The low-profile 24 x 24-inch scales use four 304SS stainless steel  (4) HIPBZ C2® load cells with an integrated junction box. 

With all stainless steel construction and hazardous FM approval, the 12 x 12-inch HIBSX with a stainless steel load cell is built for wash down applications and hazardous environments.   With an IP67 aluminum load cell, the HIBSX is designed for use in dry and dusty hazardous environments.  The 24 x 24-inch features IP67-rated stainless steel, environmentally potted load cells that are suitable for light washdown. Each load cell is also FM approved and has a +/- 0.02% accuracy specification.

Hardy has built its C2® weight-free calibration technology into every scale, delivering the lowest total cost of ownership on the market.  C2 calibration saves time during commissioning and replacement, removes personnel from processing areas, and keeps your process cleaner by eliminating the need for potentially contaminated test weights.  

To ensure durability in industrial applications, Hardy has performed corner, overload and cycle testing to over 8 million cycles. In addition, Hardy performed overload testing of more than 200% rated output.  The HISBX series is ideal for manual checkweighing, piece portioning, counting, and adding minor ingredients (to a process or a batch). 

Overload testing was performed on the HIBSX 24 x 24-inch with a capacity of 1300 lbs using three 1,000 lbs test weights.  The scale was operational and tested accurate with test weights even after this grueling test.

The Hardy Process Toolbox is a set of productivity tools that support industrial weighing functions. Each tool saves time, increases accuracy, improves efficiency, or reduces risk in process weighing applications, including WAVERSAVER® to eliminate vibration, C2® electronic calibration, and Integrated Technician® to name just a few.

The Hardy Lift Deck Floor Scales feature the following Toolbox technologies:

C2® Electronic Calibration

The Hardy C2® (or eCAL as it is known in China) core feature provides quick and easy electronic calibration of a weighing system without the need for heavy test weights. Unlike calibration with test weights, all the live weight on the scale does not have to be removed and heavy test weights do not have to be repeatedly put on and off the scale. As soon as your scale system is installed, it can be C2 or eCAL calibrated, and proper scale installation verified. The result is a calibration that is easier, quicker, safer, and typically more accurate.

Through the Hardy Weighing Instrument, the Hardy HIBSX Bench Scales have access to the following additional technologies:

WAVERSAVER® Vibration Eliminator

Hardy's WAVERSAVER core technology eliminates the effects that surrounding vibration has on the scale weight signal, providing only true data for fast, accurate weight reading.

Embedded Web Server

Access your instrument from any computer browser, easing setup and making diagnostics fast and easy. Use the Embedded Web Server to set up all parameters from anywhere on the Ethernet network.

Secure Memory Module Stores Configuration Data

Hardy's Secure Memory Module (SMM) uses a standard SD card to automatically back up critical weighing system data, allowing you to transfer it to another like controller in a few minutes. You can also use the card to easily back up your controller data onto a PC.
