HI 6200 Single Channel Processor

The Hardy HI 6200 series are high performance single-channel Weight Processors featuring industrial Ethernet-based communications, IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) compatibility, remote diagnostics and a user-friendly color touch screen interface.

New Hardy HI 6200 Single Channel Weight Processor Designed for OEM Applications

Powerful weight processing, ultra-compact design, with a color touch-screen interface
The Hardy HI 6200 series are high performance single-channel Weight Processors featuring industrial Ethernet-based communications, IIoT compatibility, remote diagnostics and a user-friendly touch screen interface. Ideal for OEMs and System Integrators building machinery where fast, stable weight data and low-cost of ownership are critical components to successful design.
Ultra-compact at just 2 inches wide and 3 inches high (without connectors), the HI 6200 series saves cabinet space, allowing for high density panel design over traditional weighing instrumentation, reducing both machine cost and control cabinet footprint.

The HI 6200 series is designed to replace 4-20mA signal conditioners and analog straingage transmitters with fieldbus connectivity,providing machine builders the advantage ofthe communicating parameters and advanceddiagnostics. The HI 6200 series enables aproactive maintenance strategy while reapingthe benefits of IIoT device level connectivitythough a built-in Webserver or directly via the UDP layer.

The intuitive 1.8” TFT-LCD touch screen interface is thoughtfully designed so that anyone with basic scale knowledge can set-up and operate the instrument without having to read a manual or receive instruction. Despite its tiny size, the high contrast color TFT display provides crisp easy to read measurements and instrument status.

Powerful 24-bit processing, state of the art hardware design, combined with Hardy’s WAVERSAVER® technology ensure fast stable weight readings in even the most adverse conditions that plague process control. As a co-processer to a control system such as a PLC, DCS or PAC, the HI 6200 delivers 100 updates per second of processed weight data at resolutions exceeding 1:10,000 without placing additional burden or delay into control loops that depend on fast accurate readings from analog sensors.


All versions include the Hardy Productivity Toolbox – embedded Webserver for set-up, monitoring and control from any browser-anywhere, C2® weightless calibration, INTEGRATED TECHNICIAN® instrumentdiagnostics, and a suite of control integration tools such as Rockwell EDS_AOP, HMI Faceplates, and GSDML files.

Hardy Process ToolboxHardy Process Toolbox

The Hardy Process Toolbox is a set of productivity tools that support industrial weighing functions. Each tool saves you 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 HI 6200 series features the following Toolbox 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.

C2® (or eCAL) 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.

Hardy's INTEGRATED TECHNICIAN® (IT) core feature helps you troubleshoot your weighing system and diagnose problems from the front of the instrument or via the PLC. These tests display individual system weights and voltages, as well as  pass/fail, stability and zero verification to help isolate a problem to the instrument, cabling, or sensors, helping to reduce maintenance costs.

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 password protected parameters from anywhere on the Ethernet network. The web server also enables IIoT connectivity to The Connected Enterprise.
