The HI 6500-XP Extreme Weight Processor (photo) is an EtherNet/IP-enabled weight processor that can process and output 300 updates per second of processed stable weight. The processor’s fast communication with the process logic controller (PLC) allows for higher product yield and consistency, while reducing processing time, says the company. The device is intended for applications where speed and accuracy are critical, such as batching, blending, filling, dispensing and check-weighing. With an embedded Web server, the instrument can be accessed remotely on any computer browser. — Hardy Process Solutions, Inc., San Diego, Calif.
