This company has designed a new version of its E-Scale series of IIoT-connected bench scales (photo). With a direct industrial network connection via EtherNet/IP, Profibus-DP or Modbus protocols, the IIoT-ready scale base includes an integrated weight processor. E-Scales are suitable for pharmaceutical manufacturing, laboratory dry-goods processing and industrial installations. All E-Scales come standard in 12- and 24-in. sizes, and range in capacity from 33 to 1,300 lb (15 kg to 600 kg). Bench-scale covers are stainless steel for superior durability. Bases have no bearings, spirit levels or moving parts that could be easily damaged or worn out. — Hardy Process Solutions, San Diego, Calif.
