San Diego, CA, May 2005 - Hardy Instruments has expanded the communication capabilities of the HI 3300 Tension Controller to include Ethernet/IP. This new communication will provide even greater integration capabilities for tension control in web and cable/strand applications. The communications list for the Tension Controller now includes analog, Modbus TCP, Allen-Bradley Remote I/O, Profibus, ControlNet, Ethernet TCP/IP, DeviceNet, and OPC.Using a load cell based, closed loop control methodology to precisely control tension, the HI 3300 Tension Controller optimizes the process by directly controlling a drive or braking system based on the actual direct measurement of the product tension. The Controller is able to provides extreme precision in control through the use of Hardy’s proprietary WAVERSAVER ® technology, which ignores surrounding vibration for accurate tension readings. Reduce plant downtime with C2® Electronic Calibration, which calibrates your system at the touch of a button without test weights, and with the Secure Memory Module (SMM ®), which continuously backs up all instrument setup and calibration data, for security and peace of mind. Hardy Instruments has been providing customers with process control solutions for over 85 years and is best known for its innovative technology. Hardy, an ISO 9001-certified manufacturer, is based in San Diego, California.Please visit www.hardyinstruments.com.
