Hardy introduces HMI Faceplates for Rockwell PLC weigh scale models

April 15, 2016 – Hardy Process Solutions announces free Faceplates/AOIs designed for FactoryTalk View. Hardy’s Faceplates/AOIs make use of tags for controllers and graphics for HMIs, which can reduce GUI development time by 50 to 90%. Now manufacturers can configure, commission, operate and display weigh scale module information without writing a line of code. 

Hardy brought the PLC backplane plug-in module to the market, then made adding 1756 and 1769 plug-in weigh modules to projects easier with the release of Add-On-Profiles in RSLogix 5000 versions 20 and above. Hardy has now taken integration simplification a step further with the release of Faceplates/AOIs for FactoryTalk View. 

Hardy Faceplates include help text to guide first-time users through weigh scale configuration, calibration, and filter setting to get users’ weigh scale module integrated, configured and producing stable weight data quickly. Available in both SE and ME versions, adding a Faceplate requires three steps: 

1) Import the weigh scale module Faceplate/AOI found free on Hardy’s website

2) Associate the Faceplate/AOI with the appropriate weight scale module

3) Add the Faceplate to the display and begin using.

Created using Global Objects for FactoryTalk View, Hardy Faceplates can be modified to accommodate any number of specific user requirements such as changes to fonts, colors, sizes, buttons, etc. Programmers can cut and paste specific elements of the Faceplates, such as displayed Gross Weight data, to be used in other visualization projects showing, for example, an entire factory-scale system.
