Hardy Bench Scales Fit Your Application

Hardy Bench Scales offer the ultimate in product configurability and customization for use in all industrial weighing applications, offering customers the ability to choose the right product at a price that fits their budget. Hardy Bench Scales are available in either stainless or carbon steel base construction, with 304 Stainless Steel platters. Choose between hermetically sealed, IP68/69K, C2 load cells and environmentally sealed, IP67 load cells, depending on your application.

All Hardy Bench Scales come standard in 12”x12”, 18”x18”, and 24”x24” sizes, and range in capacity from 5lbs – 1,000lbs (2.27kg to 454 kg). Custom sizes and capacities are available upon request. Tell us what will work best for your application and budget, and let us create the solution.

400 Series – HIBS400-xxxx

The 400 Series is Hardy’s top of the line industrial bench scale. With all stainless steel construction and a hermetically sealed, IP68/IP69K, FM Hazardous approved, stainless steel Advantage® load cell, the HI BS400 is built for the heaviest wash down applications and corrosive environments. 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.

For seamless integration into your manufacturing control system, attach any of the Hardy Bench Scales to a Hardy Weight Processor or Weight Controller with EtherNet/IP, Profibus-DP, Modbus, or Analog 4-20mA output. Or connect to a Hardy PAC or PLC plug-in weight module for the cleanest installation on the market.

All Hardy Scales can be paired with an optional 12” or 24” Indicator Column for instrument mounting. Hardy Bench Scales are also available with a ball-top platter to streamline roll-on, roll-off weighing applications.

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 Floor 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.
