server to link performance diagnostics and configuration data to and from your local
Intranet, Extranet, VPN or via the Internet (World Wide Web). An available DeviceNet
interface allows multiple applications to be viewed and controlled from one display and
enables 3rd party I/O to be easily added to the system. Mapped I/O saves you wiring costs
by distributing the I/O where you need it, at the process or in the control room. The
available communication protocols allow you to integrate the controller into your corporate
network, enabling data to be transferred to and from a PLC® (Programmable Logic
Controller), DCS (Distributed Control System) or computer network.
NOTE
The HI 4050 was recently updated to the HI 4050+. To support all users of the HI 4050,
regardless of hardware configuration, this manual uses the term HI 4050 interchangeably
with the HI 4050+, except in those matters specifically referring to the HI 4050+.
A 4050+ unit has new hardware that enable it to operate at 110 or 250 samples per second,
offers a resolution of 1:30,000 and has a new patent-pending adaptive filtering mechanism
called WAVERSAVER+ that increases the stability of weight readings by a factor of three.

Connectivity
The HI 4050 enables operators to use the selectable10/100 Base T Ethernet port and its
embedded web server to link performance, diagnostics and setup data to and from your
Intranet, Extranet, VPN or the Internet. The available communication interface lets you
view and control multiple applications from a display and add third-party I/O to the system.
A single RS-232 serial port is configured as a printer port.
Digital I/O
Digital inputs are used to either signal a change in state or send the commands to tare, zero,
or calibrate the instrument. Two setup options provide alternatives for application-specific
requirements. The standard option uses only the HI 4050’s three built-in external digital
inputs, which are sufficient for many applications.
Mapped I/O
Mapped I/O saves wiring costs by distributing the I/O where you need it, at the process or
in the control room. Available interfaces provide communications to PLC, DCS or
computer controlled systems.
WAVERSAVER®
Mechanical noise (from other machinery in a plant environment) can be present in forces
larger than the weight forces being measured. The HI 4050 is fitted with WAVERSAVER
technology that eliminates the effects of vibratory forces present in all industrial weight
control and measurement applications. By factoring out almost all of the ambient vibratory
forces, the controller can separate out the actual weight data.
WAVERSAVER can be configured from the front panel to ignore noise with frequencies as
low as 0.25 Hz or as high as 7.0 Hz. One of five higher additional cut off frequencies can
be selected to provide a faster instrument response time. The default factory setting is 1.00
Hz vibration frequency immunity.
WAVERSAVER+
WAVERSAVER+ is a superset of WAVERSAVER for the HI 4050+ that uses two
additional parameters, variation_thd and motion_thd, to configure an adaptive filtering
algorithm, which significantly improves the stability and accuracy of the weight reading.
C2® Calibration
C2 Electronic Calibration enables a scale system to be calibrated electronically without
using certified test weights. A C2 weighing system consists of up to eight load sensors, a
junction box, interconnect cable and an instrument with C2 capabilities, such as the HI
4050 Weight Controller. Digital information within every Hardy Process Solutions C2certified load sensor details its unique performance characteristics. The HI 4050 Weight
Controller reads the performance characteristics of each load sensor and detects the
4

•
•
•
•

quantity of load sensors in the system. The calibration process uses a reference point from
the front panel or the Web Server. The reference is normally zero (no weight on the scale)
but can be a known weight on the scale.
NOTE
WAVERSAVER® and C2® are registered trademarks of Hardy Process Solutions Inc.
Integrated Technician™
In conjunction with an IT junction box, the HI 4050 INTEGRATED TECHNICIAN™
(IT®) system diagnostics program makes it possible to diagnose weighing system problems
from the front panel or over the available networks. IT reads individual load sensor voltages
and weights and isolates individual system components for quick and easy troubleshooting.
The New HI 6020 IT summing junction cards can support up to 8 load cells for diagnostics.
Secure Memory Module (SMM - SD)
The Secure Memory Module is a non-volatile secure digital card that stores critical HI 4050
configuration, calibration and setup data, thereby protecting this information from loss
and/or corruption. The SD card dramatically increases the HI 4050’s non-volatile storage
capacity and flexibility. Furthermore the SD card can be read by a PC with an SD card
reader. Each controller is equipped with one SD Card, for additional SD cards and SD card
readers, writers and adapters, contact your local Hardy Representative or the Hardy Process
Solutions Service Center for price and availability.
NOTE
Hardy supports Hardy branded SD cards as well as most FAT and FAT32 formatted SD
cards to a maximum size of 2GB capacity.

Rate of Change Option
The ROC option measures and displays the rate at which a material enters or is dispensed
from the scale over a period of time. ROC data uses a 110-entry register. New weight values
are written to the register at the rate of 1/110th of the time base. The first register is
subtracted from the 111th Register, which is one time base older than the first register. The
time frame can be set to units per second, minute, or hour. A time base of discrete values is
selectable from 1 to 1800.
Analog Output Option
Each of four independent analog outputs per option card is configured from the front panel
or the embedded web server. Two outputs are voltage and two are current. This option
allows the transmission of gross, net, available Rate-of-Change (ROC) or “mapped”
weight. Mapped weights can be 0-5V or 0-10V on the voltage outputs and 0-20 mA or 420 mA on the current outputs. It also is possible to span these ranges over a portion of the
weight data with a resolution of 16,000 counts for each channel. All parameters can be
mapped to these Analog Outputs.
NOTE
The analog output is not isolated. An external 4-20 ma isolator may be required for stable
readings.
Digital I/O Option
While the standard HI 4050 includes three built-in external digital inputs, the digital I/O
card option adds three more digital inputs (isolated) and four digital outputs (non-isolated).

Chapter 1
RIO Option
Under license from The Rockwell Corporation, Hardy Process Solutions Inc. has
developed a Remote I/O Interface for the HI 4000 Series. This interface is fast, field proven,
requires minimal wiring, requires no special software drivers, and is standard on many
Rockwell programmable controllers.
ControlNet Option
ControlNet is an open network protocol used in industrial automation applications for
linking an HI 4050 to any ControlNet-capable device (such as PLCs)
Profibus Option
The PROFIBUS-DP (Decentralized Peripherals) communication profile is designed for
efficient field-level data exchange. The central automation devices, such as PLC/PC or
process control systems, communicate through a fast serial (RS485) connection with
distributed field devices, e.g. PLCs. To begin communicating weighing parameters
between an HI 4000 Series controller and a PLC, PC or DCS system controller, you need
only to load the *.GSD file and set the node address.
DeviceNet Option
The DeviceNet Network is an open, industry-standard communication network protocol
designed to provide an interface through a single cable from a programmable controller or
PC directly to all HI 4000 series instruments as well as smart devices such as sensors, push
buttons, motor starters, simple operator interfaces, drives and other weigh modules.

For this example we are recommending a 3/4" thick 24”x24” piece of MDX plywood,
mounted flat and level to create a strong flat mounting surface for the HI4050PMWS and
HI4050DRWS enclosure.
It is very important to install the enclosure on a flat surface. When the four enclosure
mounting screws are tightened on a warped surface the enclosures NEMA 4/4X seal will
be jeopardized.
Mount the plywood to the level surface, insuring you are screwing into two adjacent wall
studs. Insure the four screws are flush and positioned to not interfere with the enclosure's
four lag screws 3/8”x2”. Drill 5/32” pilot holes to avoid splitting the wall studs.With the
plywood secured to the wall, use a spirit level and install the enclosure to the plywood,
using four 14-1 wood screws.
Verify the door closes and seals properly. You may need to use shims to insure the surface
is level.
Blind Units (no display)
The front display is not necessary for the HI-4050 to operate as a scale controller. Blind
units can be fully configured using the Web browser communication and the IP setup

Wiring the Digital I/O Option Card (-DIO)
The digital I/O card plugs into either the Options or
Network slot. (Do no use the External output slot.)
The card can process up to three discrete input signals
from a connected PLC or other source without using a
relay. Its four outputs enable you to connect to external
relays for switching on a valve, switch, etc.
Pin Setup and Wiring
Suggested Option Card Input Wiring
To activate the DIO card's inputs, apply 3-30 VDC
between the input terminal (pin 7, 8 or 9) and the COM
terminal, pin 6 on the DIO card's 9-pin connector.
6 - Common (Isolated)
7 - Input 1
8 - Input 2
9 - Input 3
Suggested Option Card Output Wiring
You can use the four DIO card outputs to send a TTL weak
5vdc output signal (worst case minimum 3 V at 5mA out)
to a relay driver circuit to actuate mechanical relays. The
outputs can also implement pull-to-ground applications
requiring 250mA or less. When the output activates, it
pulls the return side to ground and activates the relay coil.
For connections to the digital outputs, 1-4 are output 1to
output 4, and 5 is the GND (Same as power GND).
Steps to hook up an external relay
Step 1. Attach a 3-30 VDC power supply common to the GND terminal, pin 5.

•
•
•
Step 2. Connect the power supply plus side to the relay coil.
Step 3. Connect the return side of the relay to a DIO output terminal.
Resettable Fuses
A current exceeding the limit trips a thermal fuse. The fuses will trip if any of the outputs
are shorted to a power supply, causing the output voltage to rise to a high logic voltage
level. The output will remain in the high state until the user resets the fuse.
To reset the fuse, either remove the power source from the output until the circuit cools
(about 30 seconds) or toggle the digital output in question to a high voltage state for 30
seconds.
Installing a Card in the Network Slot
While some cards use a 16-pin board stacker and others use a or 40-pin board stacker, the
process for installing an optional card in the network slot is basically the same:
Step 1. Plug the 16-pin or 40-pin 28mm board stacker into the header on the network
option card.
Step 2. Align the board stacker pins with the16 right-side pin holes for the network slot
Header (J41) located on the bottom of the Main Controller board.
Step 3. Using two fingers gently push the board stacker pins into the network slot header
until the standoffs touch the bottom of the main controller board.

Chapter Four contains step-by-step instructions for configuring the Hardy HI 4050 Weight
Controller and related communication networks. We recommend reading these procedures
because having a correct configuration is necessary to ensure trouble-free operation.
This chapter explains how to configure the HI-4050 from either its own front panel or with
a PC-based Web interface connected to the HI-4050 over a standard Ethernet network. HI4050 features operate the same way in either case.
You must use the Web interface to configure units that do not have a display.
Before operating the HI 4050 Weight Controller, make sure that:
• Power and load point cables are properly installed and in working order.
• Communication cables are properly installed and in working order.
See chapter 3 for details on installing load point cables and Ethernet wiring.
4050 Front Panel and Set Point Configuration
See Chapter 7 for a complete description of the front panel and how it works.
See Chapter 6 for a complete description of what set points are and how they are used.
See Chapter 7 for a description of how an operator can change a setpoint weight.
Ethernet Network Configuration
NOTE
Do not confuse the onboard Ethernet TCP/IP communication with EtherNet/IP®.
EtherNet/IP is an industrial protocol that does not transmit Web traffic and is a purchased
option.
An embedded Web server in the HI-4050 allows you the easily configure every parameter
of the instrument via a standard Web browser. A standard Ethernet network is required to
provide the connectivity between the HI-4050 and your desktop / laptop computer.
The HI-4050 Weight Controller is designed with a standard 10/100 BASE-T Ethernet
connection for linking to any Windows PC. Once connected, you can monitor, download
Hardy software, or configure the HI-4050 from that PC. A Help function can assist you in
setup or trouble-shooting. The browser also links to the Hardy Web Site where the user can
find additional services and support.

IP Setup
If you have a blind unit, you must use the IP Setup utility to set the IP address instead of
the front panel. Follow the steps below for a LAN or Direct Connection, but use the
IP address from these steps in the IP Setup utility to configure the 4050. Refer to the section
on IP Setup Program at the end of this chapter for more information.
There are two primary ways to connect the HI-4050 to your computer:
LAN Connection: Connect the HI-4050 to an existing Ethernet-based Local Area
Network (LAN) that has connectivity to your desktop or laptop
computer. See the LAN Connection section below.
Direct Connection: A direct point-to-point connection between the HI-4050 and your
desktop or laptop computer using any standard Ethernet cable. See
the Direct Connection section below.
LAN Connection
To connect the HI-4050 to a LAN, you simply connect a standard Ethernet cable between
the instrument and the common network hub. You will then need to determine the scheme
used on the network to assign IP addresses. Every node on the network must have a unique
IP address or conflicts will result. Contact your Network Administrator for the IP address
to use for the instrument.
The IP address can be set manually (fixed IP), or it can be set automatically by a network
service called DHCP. If you are required to use Fixed IP addresses, refer to the section
Fixed IP Configuration Using the Front Panel below. For automatic IP assignment
(DHCP), use the following steps:
DHCP Configuration Using the Front Panel
DHCP works only if a DHCP server is installed on your network. To enable DHCP on the
HI-4050, you must first set the current IP address to ‘0.0.0.0’ on the IP configuration
screen.
Step 1. Press Enter from the Summary display to activate the Configuration menu. Use
the down arrow to select Instrument Setup and press Enter.
Step 2. Use the down arrow to select Ethernet; then select IP to display the IP screen.
Step 3. If the display is not already showing 0.0.0.0, press the CLR button to erase the
current IP value.
Step 4. Starting with the right-most digit, enter the value ‘0.0.0.0’ using the up/down
arrows to select each character, and press the left arrow to move to the next digit.
Step 5. Press Enter to save the entry.
Step 6. Press the Exit key four times to exit the IP, Ethernet, Configuration and Setup
menus.

Step 7. Power-cycle the instrument to force it to enable the DHCP method for setting the
IP address. (Step not required for HI 4050 software after version 1.7.0.0.)
Step 8. Recall the Configuration / Instrument Setup / Ethernet / IP menu. If the DHCP
configuration was successful, the DHCP: line will include an IP address provided
by the network server. This is the IP address to use in your web browser to access
the Web Interface. From here you can jump to the section Network Options
Configuration.
Displaying the Complete DHCP IP Address
Read-only screens can display a limited number of characters per line. To see the complete
IP address in DHCP, you need to do the following:
Step 1. On the Ethernet menu,
select DHCP. In our
example the DHCP
_
>
address shows
192.168.100.12. The
actual address is
192.168.100.128. The “8” is not displayed.
Step 2. Press Enter and the DHCP edit form will show the complete IP address.
NOTES
You cannot change the values of the DHCP IP address. Exit returns to the Ethernet Menu.
If the ‘DHCP:’ line remains 0.0.0.0, allow the instrument another minute to acquire an
address from the server and re-enter the IP menu. If this doesn’t work, the DHCP server is
not visible to the HI-4050 and you should use a Fixed IP configuration.
Fixed IP Configuration Using the Front Panel
The HI-4050 can be configured to use any fixed IP address. Fixed IP addresses must be
carefully selected to avoid accidentally configuring two devices to the same address with
unpredictable results. Since ‘guessing’ a value could lead to personal or property damage
and/or interrupted network services, your network administrator should provide this
address.
Step 1. From the Summary display, press Enter to activate the Configuration menu. Use
the down arrow to select Instrument Setup and press Enter.
Step 2. Use the down arrow again to select Ethernet, and select IP to display the IP screen.
Step 3. If the display is not showing the correct IP value, press the CLR button to erase
the current value.

Step 5. Press Enter to save the entry.
Step 6. Press the Exit key four times to exit the IP, Ethernet, Configuration, and Setup
menus.
The IP address is now saved and the instrument’s embedded Web browser is now available
at the entered IP address. From here you can jump to the Network Options Configuration
section.
Direct Connection
This method of interconnect between an HI-4050 and a standard Windows PC allows you
to configure the instrument using the embedded web browser, even if an Ethernet network
is not part of the normal installation. A desktop or laptop may be used on location as
necessary.
Both sides of the link require configuration of their IP addresses to establish a working
connection. The following steps will walk you through the process of connecting the
hardware and configuring the HI-4050 and PC with compatible IP addresses.
Direct Connect Hardware
Any standard Ethernet cable with RJ-45 connectors at each end can be used to connect the
HI-4050 to your PC. A ‘crossover’ cable is not required. Simply plug the cable into each
instrument.

EtherNet/IP™
EtherNet/IP, short for Ethernet Industrial Protocol, is an open industrial networking
standard that takes advantage of commercial, off-the-shelf Ethernet communication chips
and media. Ethernet technology, enables the user to access device-level data from the
Internet. The EtherNet/IP networking standard supports both implicit messaging (real-time
I/O messaging) and explicit messaging (message exchange). EtherNet/IP is an open
network that takes advantage of commercial technology that already exists.
IP is the transport and network layer protocol of the Internet and is commonly linked with
all Ethernet installations and the business world. IP provides a set of services that any two
devices can use to share data.
You will need a key number to enable EtherNet/IP. You can purchase a key number by

Rate of Change (-ROC) Option Configuration
Enabling Rate of Change requires a Key number. You can purchase a key number from the
Hardy Service Center or contact your local Hardy representative.
Rate of Change is enabled as an option of print mode.
ROC Time Base
The Time Base is the length of time in seconds between two weight readings that are
subtracted to determine the initial flow rate. By increasing the time base, you increase the
time between weight readings. This allows more material to be dispensed during the time
base period. A proper ROC cannot be determined if the time base is to short. The time base
needs to be sufficient to insure a weight changed is determined at the end of each period.
Low flow rates require a longer time base than high flow rates. The HI 4050 measures
weight to better than 1 part in 10,000. The formula below provides a general starting range.
TIME BASE > (SCALE CAPACITY/10000)/LOW RATE (units per second)
SCALE CAPACITY/10,000 = determines a consistent and stable weight increment.
Example: (440/10,000) = 0.044lb increments
The lowest setpoint in units per second @ 1lb per minute is: 1lb/60 seconds =
0.0166lb/seconds
Thus:
TIME BASE = 0.044/0.0166= 2.65 (rounded to 3)
MINIMUM TIME BASE = 3 second
This Time base is divided into 100 segments read over the 3 second time base. This will
add a new weight reading every 30ms and recalculate the ROC in a rolling average scheme.

.exe file to install the software on your PC. Upon completion, a Hardy Modbus-Link icon
appears on your Desktop.
MODBUS is an application layer messaging protocol used to support client / server
communications between devices connected on different types of buses or networks.
Its services are specified by function codes that are elements of MODBUS request / reply
PDUs. MODBUS is implemented for the HI 4050 using TCP/IP over Ethernet.
The Client/Server definitions are as follows:
• Client - The module asking for data.
• Server - The module providing the data.
NOTE
MODBUS is positioned at level 7 of the OSI model and is accessed at a reserved system
port 502 on the TCP/IP stack. It will support communication with up to 10 different hosts
(sockets).

Analog Card Option Configuration
The analog output card has four channels. Channels 1 and 3 produce a 0-10 volt (V) output.
Channels 2 and 4 produce a 0-20 milliamp (I) output. The Voltage Low and High and
Current Low and High are set to the default values 0-10 Volts output and 4-20 mA output.
While there is normally no reason to change these values, they can be set to accommodate
other ranges required for a PLC or operating environment.
With the required add processing time for an analog out signal. With the optional analog
out card the SPS setting is forced to 110sps.
The configuration objective is normally to set high and low weight values to match the high
and low weight specifications in the PLC. The analog card uses these high and low weight
values to calculate its weight-related outputs. You can set these values from either the front
panel or the Web interface.
NOTE
Each analog out channel used needs to be connected to a weighing element. (Gross, NET,
ROC) using mapping. This mapping can be accomplished from the web browser or front
display.
Analog Card Configuration from the Web Interface
Step 1. From the Home Page click Configuration to open
the Configuration page, and select Options to open
the options menu.
Step 2. Click Analog Output Card to open the Analog

NOTE
If you don’t want to change the Voltage Low and High and Current Low and High default
values, start with the Low and High Weight values for your application.
For assistance in configuring the Analog Output Card, click HELP at the top of the page.
Step 3. To Configure Channel1 (Voltage Output), rapidly click in the Chan 1 V LOW
field until the entire value is highlighted (which may take a few clicks), then type
in the value for your low voltage output.
Step 4. Follow the same procedure to enter appropriate values for the high voltage output
(V HIGH), Low Weight, and High Weight.
Step 5. Click Set to save the parameters at any time. However if you are configuring more
than one channel, you can wait until all the channels are configured.
Step 6. To Configure Channels 2, 3 and 4, repeat the procedures above. Remember that
Channels 2 and 4 are current (I) outputs.
NOTE
To refine a reading of say 10.02 where you want an output reading of 10, adjust the 0-10
values to get the correct output. The formula to do this is as follows:
•
•
•
•
(Expected Output/Actual Output) x Expected Output = New Number
For example: (10/10.02) x 10 = .998 x 10 = 9.98
Reset your input numbers to 0-9.98.
This formula applies to all four channels.

PROFIBUS® Configuration
ProfiBus DP operates using a cyclic transfer of data between master(s) and slave(s) on an
RS485 network. An assigned master periodically requests (polls) each node (slave) on the
network. The HI 4050 is a slave device. All data communication exchanges between a
master and the HI 4050 originate from the master device. Each HI 4050 is assigned to one
master and only that master may write output data to that HI 4050. Other masters may read
information from any slave, but can only write output data to their own assigned slaves.
Because ProfiBus uses a cyclic (periodic) polling mechanism between masters and slaves,
it is also deterministic. Therefore behavior of a ProfiBus system can be reliably predicted
over time. ProfiBus is designed to guarantee a deterministic response.
The length (and timing) of the I/O data to be transferred from a single slave to a master is
predefined in the slave's device data base or GSD file. The GSD files of each device
connected via the network (slaves and class 1 masters only) are compiled into a master
parameter record which contains parameterization and configuration data, an address
allocation list, and the bus parameters for all connected stations. A master uses this
information to set up communication with each slave during startup. Slaves can only
acknowledge the messages they receive or transfer messages to a master when the latter
requests a slave to do so. Slaves are also designated as passive nodes.

Initialization Process
To be able to add an HI 4050 to a Profibus-DP network, you need a PC and software such
as Siemens Step 7™, Simatic Manager or equal, that allows the Profibus-DP PLC and the
HI 4050 to exchange data.
Profibus-DP .GSD File
All devices connected to a Profibus-DP network require a *.gsd file. The *.gsd file contains
all the parameters including the baud rate, table formats and necessary data required by the
network PLC when an HI 4050 is connected to the network.
A copy of the *.gsd file can be found on the CD that comes with the instrument or at the
Hardy Website or at http://www.profibus.com/libraries.html.
Whichever Simatic Manager you select, you must go through these three steps:
Step 1. Connect the HI 4000 Series Instrument to the Profibus DP network and verify the
address. (See the Installation Section for Installation and Cabling Instructions. )
Step 2. Connect the PC to the Trunk Line. Load the configuration properties to the
initialization software on the PC and transfer them to the PLC.
Step 3. Install the *.gsd file, and map I/O data table properties to the instrument.
Pre-Initialization Procedures
Step 1. Inspect the network cables and make sure that the cables have been installed
correctly and satisfy the Profibus-DP guidelines for the data transmission baud
rate(s) required. (See the Cabling Chapter/Profibus Installation in this manual for
Profibus-DP cable specifications and cabling guidelines.)
Step 2. Select the Node address for the HI 4050. (See below) This can be done before or
after Initialization.
Step 3. Cycle power, or perform the two previous steps before powering up your network.
Address selection can only occur after cycling the power. Make sure that the
software you use will detect the values as you have set them.
CAUTION:
The address should never be changed during operation. If the address is modified
while on line, an internal error could be generated and the module disconnected from
the network.
ATTENTION
L’adresse ne devrait jamais être changée durant le fonctionnement. Si l’adresse
est modifiée pendant la mise en ligne, une erreur interne pourrait être créée et le
module sera déconnecté du réseau.
Profibus-DP provides a very flexible network solution. In addition to the basic guideline
provided in this manual, your installation could require procedures that are beyond the
scope of this manual. For more information and to locate lists of links to other sources of
Profibus-DP information, check the Profibus website at http://www.profibus.com.

NumAverages Parameter
The value you enter for Number of Averages (NumAverages) sets the number of weight
readings used to compute a sliding average of displayed weight. This setting is to aid in

You should not set the number of NumAverages to exceed the WAVERSAVER timing.
With a WAVERSAVER=7.5hz (60ms) and SPS speed selection of 250sps, this instance
would suggest a limit of 60 ms or 15 averages (4ms each). A SPS setting of 110sps provides
a 10ms sample rate.
Vigorous vibration and impacting would require a lower frequency WAVERSAVER setting
or increased NumAverages. So when you decrease the WAVERSAVER setting, reduce the
NumAverages accordingly.
The default factory setting is 10.

The WAVERSAVER® Parameter
Mechanical noise (from other machinery in a plant environment) can be present in forces
larger than the weight forces being measured. The HI 4050 is fitted with WAVERSAVER
technology that eliminates the effects of vibratory forces present in all dynamic and static
industrial weight control and measurement applications. By factoring out almost all of the
ambient vibratory forces, the HI 4050 can separate out the actual weight data from
background noise caused by vibration.
WAVERSAVER can be configured from the front panel or via the web browser to ignore
noise with frequencies as low as 0.25 Hz. One of five higher additional cut off frequencies
can be selected to provide a faster instrument response time.
The default factory setting is 1Hz vibration frequency immunity.
To determine which WAVERSAVER® setting is right for your application the rough
guideline is that the less vibration your scale is exposed to, the faster the weighing time.
•
•
82 ••
•
•
Chapter 4
To reduce the effects of low amplitude high frequency vibrations, use WAVERSAVER®
settings OFF, 7.5Hz, 3.5Hz or 1.0Hz.
To reduce the effects of high amplitude low frequency vibrations, use WAVERSAVER®
settings 0.5Hz or 0.25Hz.
The WAVERSAVER® calculation speed is independent of the sample rate.
The HI 4050 sample rate is selectable at 110 sps or 250 sps (samples per second). That is
the number of weight samples that are available for communications and weight
processing, whether the weight has changed or not. With the optional analog out card the
SPS setting is forced to 110sps.
The approximate timing for WAVERSAVER calculations are as follows:
•
•
•
•
•
•
7.5hz = 60 ms
3.5hz = 120 ms
1hz = 500 ms
0.5hz = 1 seconds
0.25hz = 2 seconds,
WAVERSAVER OFF = 0 seconds.
After a change on the scale the total time to finalize a new weight reading is the
WAVERSAVER plus the NumAverages. Calculate the amount of time your product will
be fully on the scale. Then adjust the WAVERSAVER and NumAverages setting to add up
to less than that time period.
Section 1 describes the benefits of using the WAVERSAVER feature.

WAVERSAVER+ Options: Variation_thd and Motion_thd
WAVERSAVER+ is a superset of WAVERSAVER that uses two entirely new parameters,
Variation_thd (Variation Threshold) and Motion_thd (Motion Threshold). These two
parameters add a patent-pending adaptive filtering algorithm to the WAVERSAVER output
that provides stability to weight readings of up to 1:30,000.
Configuration
•
•
• 83
•
•
•
To configure WAVERSAVER+, set the WAVERSAVER and Numaverages parameters to
establish the speed and required accuracy for dynamic weighing. Set the variation_thd to
0.0 and observe the peak to peak variation of the weight value. Then set the variation
threshold parameter to be 1.5 times larger than the observed weight variation. Set the
motion threshold to 1/3 of the observed peak to peak weight variation.
For example, if the observed weight change is 6, set the variation_thd should be set to 9
(1.5X) and the motion_thd parameter set to 2 (1/3X). Note the weight changes will settle to
a 2 increment level
Weight changes smaller than 1:40,000 will need considerations for environmental
protections from air movement forces and additional WAVERSAVER and NumAverages
settings.
The default factory setting is 0.0; which turns WAVERSAVER+ OFF

Threshold. The section below is provided for those users whose instruments are
operating with older firmware.
The Low Pass filter can be toggled on or off. When it is on it provides a more stable weight
reading but at the expense of the reaction time. Some applications require the additional
stability. If reaction time is not critical, leave the Low Pass Filter On, otherwise turn it off.
RANGE: ON/OFF (default ON)
On the Web page, from the Low Pass Filter pull-down list,
select ON to turn the filter on or OFF to turn it off. For most
applications the Low Pass Filter should remain ON.

AutoZero and AutoZero Tolerance Parameters (Gross Weight)
Setting the AutoZero Parameter to ON automates the zeroing function. When AutoZero is
ON, if the motion is within tolerance and the value is within the AutoZero tolerance value,
the instrument is automatically zeroed every few seconds until you turn off AutoZero. This
does not override the Zero button. You can still press the Zero button to zero the HI 4050
at any time, but AutoZero is useful in applications where you are zeroing a scale quite often
and don’t want to push the Zero button each time.
RANGE: .000001 - 999999 . (default 10.0)
The AutoZero Tolerance parameter is used by the auto zero tracking feature and any zero
command sent over communication or mapping path. AutoZero sets the gross weight units
to zero, using the current gross zero as reference.
Set the AutoZero Tolerance parameter smaller than the ZERO Tolerance parameter. If the
AutoZero Tolerance is exceeded for some reason you may press the ZERO button on the
instrument and utilize its tolerance level. This resets the AutoZero tolerance and again
allows AutoZero to resume.
RANGE: .000001 - 999999 . (default 10.0)
On the Web page, the AutoZero Parameter defaults to OFF.
Turning it ON automates the zeroing function. You must

the certified modes, DASHES will appear on the front display. This signifies that you have
exceeded the certified scale limit. When a certified mode is selected as NONE, this is more
of a scratch pad noting the total load cell capacity. With NONE selected, exceeding the
amount in the Scale Capacity does not have any screen affect, unless the 16 Millivolt range
is exceeded. Then a row of ASTERISKS will appear. Communications to and from optional
devices are not effected.

Set Points
A set point value is a threshold weight or level based on the Unit (of Measure) you select
during system configuration. It may be set in either Net, Gross or available ROC weight
units. Up to four setpoints are available for optional use. This subsection describes the
attributes you can assign to a setpoint during setup configuration.
However, setpoints are used mainly for mapping digital I/O communications between the
HI 4050 and network devices (e.g., PLCs). You define the use of a setpoint value based on
how you apply that value within a mapping equation. See Section 6 for mapping information. Also, some setpoint target values may be changed while the system is operating to
accommodate changes in the operation. See Section 7 for information on resetting setpoints
during system operation.

Parameters
Deadband Limit, Preact Limit, and Type
The Deadband limit is the difference between the set point and the reset. It is used to prevent
rapidly fluctuating setpoint states once the set point is reached. For example, with a set
point value of 1000 pounds and a deadband set to 5 pounds, the relay would close at 1000
pounds but not open until the weight dropped to 995 pounds.
The preact value is the difference between the set point and the trip point. It is used as a
compensation value when filling a vessel. If set to zero, there is no compensation.
You need to select the Type. Gain in Weight is used if a setpoint is a high trip limit. Loss in
Weight and deadband is used for a low trip limit, as shown in the pictures below.

plus the preact and off when the weight is greater than the setpoint plus the preact
EXAMPLE of reverse logic relay usage.
These are two settings to fill a vessel to 350 and reset the output when near empty.
With a setpoint setting normal relay logic:
Setting NET,GIW, Target=350, Pre=0, Deadband=345. When the output reaches 250,
the output goes high and stays until LIW is below 5.
With a setpoint setting using reverse relay logic:
Settings NET, LIW, Target=5, Pre=0, Deadband=345. The Output is set high until 350,
then the output goes low and stays low until LIW is below 5.

Calibration
••••••
Chapter 5 describes calibration procedures. For the Weight Controller to give precise
readings, it must be routinely calibrated both during operation and when it has not used for
an extended period of time. It is important that users and service personnel be familiar with
the procedures in this chapter before installing or operating the HI 4050 Weight Controller.
All calibration is done in the Gross mode. Be sure to follow all the procedures completely
to insure that the weights read by the controller are accurate.
Pre-Calibration Procedures
Mechanical Check Procedures
Check to determine if the load cells have been
installed properly. Refer to your load cell I&M
manual for proper installation instructions. On
some load cells an arrow indicates the
direction of applied load. If the arrow points in
the wrong direction, change the position of the
load cell so that it is mounted in the direction
of the applied load.
Direction of
applied load
Check for Binding on the Load Cell or other
parts of the system.
CAUTION - Binding on a Scale/Vessel or
Load Cell does not allow the load cell free
vertical movement and may prevent the
instrument from returning to the original
zero reference point.
Vessel
ATTENTION – La reliure sur une Scale/Vessel ou Load Cell ne permet pas à la
Load Cell de faire des mouvements verticaux et peut éviter à l’appareil de revenir
au point original de référence zéro.
A load cell must be mounted so that 100% of the load (Vessel + Contents) are vertically
passing through a load cell.
• Visually check to see that nothing is binding the load cell or other parts of the weighing
system.
Calibration
•
•
• 99
•
•
•
• Make sure that nothing is draped over the scale/vessel or the load cell, such as a hose,
•
electrical cord, tubes, or other objects.
Check to see that nothing comes in contact with the scale/vessel other than service wires
and piping that have been properly mounted with flexible connectors.
Electrical Check Procedures
Check to see that there is power to the Weight Controller.
•
•
If there is power to the controller the front panel display should be lit.
If the display appears with a value the unit is ready for calibration.
The 4050 supplies 5 VDC excitation to as many as eight 350 ohm load cells/points, and the
expected output from each load cell/point depends on the mV/V rating of the load cell/point
and weight.
Typical Load Cell/Point Input/Output Measurements (EXC & SIG outputs)
•
•
•
A 2 mV/V load cell/point will respond with a maximum of 10 mVDC at full
weight capacity where the system includes the weight of the vessel and the weight
of the product as measured by the load cell/point.
If the load cell/point weight capacity is rated at 1000 pounds, the load cell/point
output will be10 mVDC at 1000 pounds, 7.5 mVDC at 750 pounds, 5 mVDC at
500 pounds and so on.
A zero reference point will vary from system to system depending on the “Dead
Load” (weight of the vessel and appurtenances only, with no product loaded) of
the vessel. The example below uses a dead load of 500 lbs.

Based on this example, the operating range for this scale is 5-10 mVDC with a 500 pound
weight. Understand that after zeroing the instrument the 0 reading on the instrument refers
to the zero reference point and not absolute 0 mVDC or absolute 0 weight.
NOTE
Load cell/point measurements can be checked with a digital voltmeter at the J1 connector
on the rear panel or at the summing box of the HI 4050 or use Integrated Technician if you
are using the IT Junction Box.
Allow the instrument to warm up for about 15 minutes before doing the calibration
procedures. Mechanically exercise the scale using maximum load several times before final
calibration.
Calibration Procedures
C2 Calibration
C2 Electronic Calibration calibrates a scale system electronically without using certified
test weights. It uses up to eight load sensors, a junction box, interconnect cable and an
instrument with C2 capabilities, such as the HI 4050 Weight Controller. Digital information
within an HI C2-certified load sensor details its unique performance characteristics. The HI
4050 Weight Controller reads the performance characteristics of each load sensor and
detects the number of load sensors in the system.
Before running C2 calibration, run all of the pre-calibration procedures. Make sure you
have configured the HI 4050. This includes setting the units, decimal point, scale capacity,
averages etc. For instructions please see Chapter 4, Configuration.
Reference Weight
Reference Weight is the total live load that is currently on the scale. The calibration process
uses a reference weight, which is normally zero (no weight on the scale), but can be any
known weight on the scale. With nothing on the scale, the Reference Weight is 0.00. With
5 lbs on the scale, the Reference Weight is 5.00 lbs.
Gravitation Correction
Objects weigh about 0.5% less at the equator than they weigh at each pole because the force
of gravity is less at the equator than at the poles. For example an object weighing 100
pounds at the North Pole on a spring scale would weigh 99.65 pounds at the equator.
Depending on the latitude of your location, your scales would measure somewhere in
between. The table below shows the gravitation correction factor for various cities around
the world.
In general if your location is between the 45th parallel and the equator, gravity correction
is greater than 1.0. For example, at these latitudes, because the gravity is less, you are
adding, 1.0006 for an error that is .06%). For locations between the 45th parallel and the
North or South Pole your correction factor will be less than 1.0. For example .9994 for an
error that is -.06%.
Calibration

NOTE
Ensure that the scale system is clean and ready to receive product. This step establishes the
gross zero reference.
You must perform a C2 Calibration after setting the Gravity Correction or the correction
factor won’t work.

Traditional Calibration
Traditional Calibration is the method of calibration that uses test weights. We recommend
that the span total 80 to 100% of the scale live load capacity and the weights be distributed
uniformly on/in the scale.
Load Check
Step 1. Put a load (weight) on the scale or vessel. For a full load test you can put 80% to
100% of the expected weight you will see in your process on the scale or vessel.
Step 2. Check to see if the weight reading changes on the display in the proper direction.
For example, if the display reads100 pounds and a 20 pound load is placed on the
vessel or scale, the display should read 120 or some value over100.
If the display reads 80 pounds and a 20 pound load is placed on the vessel or
scaled, the reading is going in the wrong direction and indicates some problem
with the system. (See Chapter 8, Troubleshooting for corrective action)
If the display is reading improperly or shows no change there is something wrong
with the configuration wiring or the load cells.
Step 3. If the display changes in the proper direction, remove the weight and proceed to
calibrate the Weight Controller.
Traditional Calibration from the Web page
Step 1. Traditional Calibration requires a zero point and the physical placement of test
weights on the scale. To set the Zero Value, if all “live load” weight is removed
from the Scale, the Zero Value should be 0.00. If any weight is on the scale when
setting this value, the weight must be equal to the amount of load on the scale.
Step 2. Wait 12 seconds or more.
Step 3. Click in the Ref Weight text field and enter the reference weight you want. In our
example we entered 0 lbs. If you want the reference weight to be 5.0 lbs., enter
5.0.

About Mapping
Mapping allows you to set up certain monitoring and control activities to meet your process
requirements without programming. HI 4050 mapping is more flexible than the typical I/O
addressing used in a PLC. Since the HI 4050 does not use predefined I/O addressing, you
can tailor custom mappings to meet the unique requirements of your application. Whether
the input is digital data to be routed to a display (requiring the DIO card option) or a setpoint
signal used to trigger a command to a PLC, mapping is often the easiest way to achieve the
desired result.
Glossary of Mapping Terms
Assignment Statement - The assignment statement tells the computer to change the value
stored in the memory address named as a variable on the left side of an = sign. (The = sign
is called an assignment operator). For example: i = a + b, means get the values stored in
memory locations a and b, add them together, then store the sum in location i.
Destination - This is the destination memory address to which data will be moved. left side
of the equation. See also Source.
I/O Interface - The section of the instrument that communicates with the external input.
Input Contact - Inputs interface selector and limit switches, push buttons, and sensors to
the HI 4050. An address assigned to each input identifies the location of the input device.
Input table - Defined in the section Input and Output Tables.
Local Mapping - See the section Local Input.
Network Mapping - This is mapping to and from network communication devices.
Node Number - This is the physical address of a device in a network.
Output table - Defined in the section Input and Output Tables.
Setpoints - Setpoints are for optional use in mapping digital I/O or other communication
values. A set point value is a threshold weight or level. It may be set in either net or gross
weight units. Up to four setpoints are available. Section 4 describes how you assign a set of
attributes to a setpoint, but you define the purpose of a setpoint based on how you apply
that setpoint within a mapping equation.
Source - This is the memory address of the data (right side of the equation) you want to
assign to the destination.

Word - When mapping the value selected for Network on the Mapping page, you can
specify a value for Word. Data passed to a table must be formatted to match the allocated
space. Words are groups of bit locations that can be identified by a sequence number. The
default word 0 indicates that data sent to that memory location will occupy the allocated
space starting from the first available bit. Entering a different value in the Word field allows
you to specify a different starting point for storing the data input. This may be done to avoid
overriding data that already exists in certain locations. For example, with ControlNet and
RIO some tables have assigned word 0 (or both 0 and 1) to other uses, so they should not
be used for a new mapping. You may need to track where information is stored. For
example, if both weight and Setpoint 1 are assigned to Word zero in the same table, the
overlapping input values would override one another. Note too that Int and Float consume
two words, so both the word selected and the word to follow must be available for mapping.
How Mapping Works
Mapping (Addressing I/O) creates assignment statements. The destination is on the left side
of the = sign and is a memory address (variable). The Source is the data on the right side of
the = sign at a memory address. The = sign assigns the data on the right side of the
assignment statement to the memory address on the left side of the assignment statement.
Any reference to the right side of the assignment statement refers to the data only and not
the address, even though the address is listed.
Memory Address (Variable) = Data (Values, states)
NOTE
Additional variables are identified in the mapping pull downs and list of mapping symbols.
Input and Output Tables
To transfer values from node to node (e.g. the HI 4050 and PLCs) during an I/O scan, each
node has an Input Table, where incoming values from other nodes are received, and an
Output Table that contains the values to be read by other nodes. The HI 4050 inputs can
be weight data, current states, etc., and the output can be commands or data to be used or
displayed by other nodes. The input and output tables are data arrays where data are stored
(i.e. a set of memory locations of tailored sizes based on the type assigned to the variable
and having an address). Mapping specifies what to do with HI 4050 input.

Often, more than two devices are involved, so separate input and output tables having
different addresses may be set up for data exchanges with each device.
In an HI 4050 mapping equation, the right side is for data from its input table and the left
side is for output.
A single equations uses at least two terms. There are limits to the number of terms allowed
with the two Samples per second selections or 110sps or 250sps. If 110sps the term limit
is 250. If the 250sps selection is used the term limit is reduced to 64. The number of
currently entered and allowed terms are noted on the browser mapping page. Complicated
equations are be more than two terms and that number will be noted (as an example
13/250). Example: CMD0=DSI0*DSO0 consists of three terms.
The HI 4050 scans through the I/O tables at either 110 times a second or 250 times per
second and reads any values they contain. If state or other values are stored in the tables,
the firmware processes the data and outputs it to an output device or the screen. If nothing
is stored to output, no output is sent. When an I/O scan occurs, the state of each input is
transferred from the input point to the input table for the receiving device, as shown in the
graphic below.
Inputs interface with selector switches, push buttons, limit switches and other sensors
connected to the HI 4050 for an ON/OFF connection. When the firmware is initiated, it
assigns the physical input contact to a memory address. (Remember Inputs = User
Switches.)
Mapping an input to a destination assigns the value of the input in the input table to an
output table address. For example: Tare = Input #3 means assign the state (Open (0) or
Closed (1)) of Contact #3, contained in the Contact Closure input #3 memory address, in
the input table and move it to the Tare address in the output table.
Output variables are also further identified by the first two letters of the variable:
•
•
•
HO - Hardy output table
DO - DeviceNet output table
EO - EtherNet/IP output table
The digital inputs on the Weight Controller are found in an input table, as are the items in
the DeviceNet input table. Some of the input table tables include:
•
•

HI - Hardy input table
DI - DeviceNet input table
EI - Ethernet input table

The source of such inputs would be an interface with a limit or selector switch, push button,

The output may be mapped to an HI 4050 internal process or one of its output tables.
Remember: Local Inputs = User Switches.
Volatile and Non-Volatile Memory
The HI 4050 output tables and input tables use volatile memory. This means, when you
power off the HI 4050, you lose the data. The Addressing I/O (Mapping) is saved in nonvolatile memory and is not lost when you power off.
Mapping to an Output
In English we might say: Connect Gross Weight to EtherNet/IP Float Out.
• EtherNet/IP Float Out is the Destination.
• Gross Weight is the Source.
In Assignment Statement form this mapping would look like this:
• Destination = Source or
• EtherNet/IP Float Out (EFO) = Gross Weight (HF10)

Example #1 Mapping to a Network Output
Step 1. For our destination, from the Network pulldown list we select an option based on
three factors:
• Type of network, e.g., CNET (Control
Net ), “EtherNet/IP, Modbus, etc.
• Message data type based on the number
•
of bits to be sent or received, e.g., Int,
Float, short Int, or Boolean (see Data
Types below).

Step 2. A Word box and Select button appears to the right of the Network box. Select the
word (location within the register to begin the value) and click Select. Avoid
using a word that is already in use for that table.
NOTE
An address such as EFO2 means the following. EFO = EtherNet Float Out. 2 = Word 2.
Step 3. An address appears in the text box below. You must scroll down to see it. Since
we selected EtherNet/IP Float Out, the destination address is EFO0 followed by
=.
Step 4. As our source, we select Gross
Weight from the Process Data pulldown list.
Step 5. A Select button then appears to
the right. Click Select to use
Gross Weight as the Source.
Step 6. This completes the assignment
statement in the Mapping text
box: “EFO0=HFI0”

Step 7. Click Map to complete the Gross Weight to EtherNet/IP Float Out equation. The
Gross Weight that is stored in the input table is now assigned to the EtherNet/IP
Float Out output table and to the EtherNet/IP Network. The Map list, shown
below, shows the new mapping.
Data Types
This description should help you choose the correct data type for mapping, e.g., Int, Float,
short Int, or Boolean.
All registers being transferred are integer. The mapping selection type specifies only the
data format within the selected word location. It does not indicate the type of register being
used. All HI-4050 data locations (registers) are configured in 16-bit words.
• When you map a Boolean value, you use only one bit within the specified word, but you
•
•
must specify the bit within the word that communicates the on/off or yes/no value.
If you map as a Short Int, you will use one word.
If you map as an Int or float, you will use two word locations. The selection of Int or
Float will specify the format of the data within the two words.
HI-4050
The setup size of the communications registers in the HI-4050 differ by network type.
Packet size determines how much data can be transferred in each send or receive activity.

DeviceNet: setup length in Bytes
EIP: setup length in Bytes
RIO: does not specify, but is in 16 bit Words
Modbus TCP/IP: does not specify, but is in 16 bit Words

Example #2 Mapping an Input
We next connect a remote switch for use in Tare operations, so we must map User Switch
1 (1 of 3 inputs to the HI 4050) to Tare. The assignment statement is:
• Destination = Source
• Tare (HO2.0) = User Switch 1 (HI0.4)
Step 1. Select Tare on the Control
pull-down menu. A Select
button appears.
Step 2. When you click Select, the
Control text box displays
the destination address.
Step 3. From the Control pull-down
list in the Source Section,
select User Switch 1. A
Select button will appear.
Step 4. Click Select to display the

Advanced Mapping
Boolean Mapping
In a Boolean equation, the destination (left side of the equation) is a Boolean term. It can
have the value 0 (FALSE) or 1 (TRUE). The HI 4050 supports three Boolean operations:
• AND - The symbol for “AND” in a Boolean Assignment Statement is “*”.
• OR - The symbol for “OR” in a Boolean Assignment Statement is “+”.
Mapping
•
•
• 117
•
•
•
• NOT - the symbol for “NOT” in a Boolean Assignment Statement is “~”.
The Boolean tables are arrays of short (2-byte) integers. An individual Boolean variable in
the table is located by its word offset and its bit offset. Boolean tables are given 2 letter
names as follows:
•
•
•
•
DI - is the DeviceNet input table.
DO - is the DeviceNet output table.
HI - is the Hardy input table.
HO - is the Hardy output table.
DeviceNet input tables and output tables are mapped to physical external devices using a
DeviceNet configuration software like Rockwell Software’s RS NetWorx.®
NOTE
RS NetWorx® is a registered trademark of the Rockwell Corporation.
A Boolean variable is addressed with the syntax below:
[tablename][word offset].[bit offset]
Example: DI0.3 is bit #3 in the DeviceNet input table, word #0.
Example #3 Mapping an Network Input to a Local Output
If you have the Digital I/O card and you want a PLC to send yes/no instructions to an HI
4050, you will have to map the local output to a network input. Here is the process:
Step 1. From the Mapping page,
under Destination click on
the Control pull-down
menu and select Digital
Card Output (HO0.0).
Step 2. Click on the Select button
to set the Destination. The
DIO1(HO0.0)” address
appears on the left side of
the Assignment
Statement.

Chapter 6
Step 3. From the Networks pull- down, select a boolean (yes/no) option as the Source for
the Assignment Statement.
Step 4. In the Word text box, if the default location is not already in use, accept it.
Step 5. Click on the Select button to assign the source to the right side of the assignment
statement. Click the Map button. The new mapping will appears below the Map
text field. This sets the digital output #1 to high/low from the input selected.
NOTE:
HI 4050 network input is the source for the data from PLC output. The PLC
can send instructions to the network (input(source) on the HI 4050 and in turn
to the HI 4050 output (destination).

Command Word (HSO2) and Status Word (HSI1)
When you are trying to send a command to the unit through mapping, you will be using
HSO2 for most of these commands. HSI1 is a status word that indicates the state of the unit
at that time. Do not confuse this with HSO1 which is the status of the command sent in
HSO2.If you are monitoring HSI1, this would indicate the condition of the unit at all times.
Any conditions in the list will have its bit turned on, so the value would be a combination
of any bits turned on at that time. Bits 0 & 1 are for A/D error/fault conditions. If you have
a problem with the input from the load cells or have a problem with the A/D converter in
the unit, you will get one or both of these bits on. If the bit is 0, then it is not an active
condition, 1 would indicate a true condition.
HSI1 - Status Word:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
HSI1 bit 0 (HI1.0) - A/D Conversion Error
HIS1 bit 1 (HI1.1) - A/D Failure
HIS1 bit 2 (HI1.2) - Center of Zero
HIS1 bit 3 (HI1.3) - Weight Overrange
HIS1 bit 5 (HI1.5) - Real Time Clock failure
HIS1 bit 6 (HI1.6) - Motion
HIS1 bit 8 (HI1.8) - SD memory card read failure
HIS1 bit 9 (HI1.9) - Display error
HIS1 bit 11 (HI1.11) - SD memory card write failure
When you send a command by setting a bit in HSO2, the command word, the HI 4050 will
run that command and send a copy of the command bit sent back to the user in HSO2 being
read. At that time, the unit will also send a command status in HSO1 to give an indication
of a pass or fail of the command. If it fails, the value returned will be an indication of the
cause of the failure. HSO1 - Command Status - value returned after a command (see HSO2)
is done.
Non-zero status means the command failed:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Status 1 (0x0001) = Calibration, Zero, or Tare failed due to ADC error
Status 2 (0x0002) = Calibration, Zero, or Tare failed due to ADC failure
Status 64 (0x0040) = Calibration, Zero, or Tare failed due to Motion
Status -8 (0xFFF8) = Hard Calibration failed, not enough ADC counts between high and
low steps
Status -6 (0xFFFA) = C2 Calibration failed, no C2 sensors detected
Status 7 (0x0007) = Bad command number of no command being sent
HSO2 - Command Word:
Commands are performed on a 1-shot basis when this word changes from 0 to 1. An error
code is returned in the "command status" word HSO1.

Analog Mapping
In an analog equation the Destination value is an analog term. The equation can have
different values in different formats, e.g. 16-bit integer, 32-bit integer, and 32-bit float. The
HI 4050 supports three analog operations. The symbols are the same as the Boolean
operations, but with different meaning.
• Multiply. The symbol for "multiply" is '*'
• Add. The symbol for "Add" is '+'
• Negate. The symbol for "Negate" is '~'
Analog tables are given three-letter names as follows:
DFI,DFO,DSI,DSO,DII,DIO all refer to DeviceNet tables, where the item is a float, a short
integer, or a 32-bit integer, depending on the second letter in the table name.
• S - 16-bit signed integer
• F - float
• I - 32-bit signed integer
An analog variable is addressed with the syntax below:
[tablename][offset]
The offset is an offset in words in the case of the network tables. The offsets in Hardy tables
have various predefined meanings.
When an analog equation is evaluated, all terms are converted to float. The final result is
then converted to the type of the destination.
Mixed Mapping
In an analog equation, the term on the left side of the = sign is an analog variable. In a
Boolean equation, the term on the left side is a Boolean variable. It is permissible to use
analog variables in Boolean equations and vice versa. A mixed equation is Boolean if its
left side is a Boolean term and Analog if its left side is an analog term.
A Boolean variable in an analog equation is converted to 1.0 or 0.0.
An analog variable in a Boolean equation is TRUE if it is greater than zero and FALSE if
it is less than or equal to zero.

"command interface" or search ID "1480".
Special (Command) Mapping
A command interface can be used to read or write a parameter value. The table CMD
appears only on the left side of a “command” equation. The right side has 1 or 2 terms. The
first one defines (in words) where the command data comes from the table and offset, and
the second term defines the table and offset where the response to a command is written.
Setting up the Command Interface Mapping
Use an equation of the form CMD0 = (in_table)*(out_table)
In_table is an input table defining where the command is written.
Out_table defines where the replay data is written.
Example: CMD0=DSI0*DSO0
This equation says the command will be written to the DeviceNet input table at word offset
0 and the reply data is written to the DeviceNet output table at word offset zero.
The upper two bytes of PARAMETER ID (JSO15) and the upper two bytes of the
parameter value (JSO14) can also be mapped, which removes the need to do steps 1 and 2
above. Instead, you would write the 0000 and 0001 into JSO15and JSO1, respectively.
Example: JSO15 = DSI2 and JSO14 = DSI3
By doing this you can set four-byte parameter values using a single command rather than
the three commands required above.
The Command Interface The HI 4050 may receive commands over any of its network
interfaces. A command consists of four-bytes, which it receives through its network input
data. The instrument responds with a four-byte response.
To read the value of any parameter, send the four-byte PARAMETER ID. The byte order is
LITTLE ENDIAN (i.e., least significant byte first). Verify that the upper two bytes are set
correctly. To verify what they should be, either see the parameter list at the end of this
section or look on the OPERATION/DIAGNOSTICS/PARAMETERS web page to find the
parameter IDs. Use the special parameter ID (0x4001 or 0xC001 with the upper bit set) to
set the upper bytes. The value the instrument returns for the parameter will be either integer
or float.
When writing the value of a parameter, the PARAMETER ID is four bytes long, and the
parameter value is also four bytes long if it is a floating-point number. However, each
command is only four bytes long, while most integer valued parameters are only two bytes
long. Also the most significant two bytes of a PARAMETER ID is usually zero.
To set the value of a two byte parameter with a four byte PARAMTER ID, send these four
bytes:
Mapping
•
•
•123
•
•
•
•
•
•
byte 0: The least significant byte of the PARAMTER ID
byte 1: The next byte of the PARAMTER ID but with the highest order bit set.
bytes 2,3: The value you want to set the parameter to.
For example, to set the value of NumAverages to 3, if the first two-bytes are set to 0, send
this hex command <0x8007><0x0003>.
Here the <0x0007> is the lowest 2 bytes of the PARAMETER ID or NumAverages which
becomes 0x8007 after you set the most significant bit and <0x0003> is the value you want
to set the parameter to.
If the parameter is 4 bytes long, as all floating-point values are, you must first set the upper
2 bytes. A special PARAMETER VALUE (0x4000 or 0xC000 with the upper bit set) does
this. Also if the upper two bytes of the PARAMTER ID are not zero, use the special
parameter ID (0x4001 or 0xC001 with the upper bit set) to set the upper bytes.
All write commands are 1-shots
The first two bytes of the response to a write command are an echo of the first two bytes of
the command. The next two bytes are either the TWO MOST SIGNIFICANT bytes of the
parameter or, if the parameter was in fact a command like ZERO or TARE, a status code
indicating whether the command succeeded or failed.
If the PARAMETER ID is not valid, the instrument will return four zero bytes.
A parameter writing example: Setting Setpoint 2 Target to 1.0
Setpoint 2 Target has a PARAMTER ID of 0x00010012 (hexadecimal). The number 1.0 in
float format is 0x3F800000.
Step 1. Set the upper two bytes of the parameter value with the command
<0xC000><0x3F80>
Step 2. Set the upper two bytes of the PARAMETER ID with the command
<0xC001><0x0001>
Step 3. Write the Setpoint 2 Target with the command <0x8012><0x0000>

Using a Parameter Dump to Save Settings
The Parameter dump can be used as a backup of the SD card and for duplicating setups in
other 4050 controllers.
Step 1. Click inside the parameter dump box.
Step 2. Select ALL
Step 3. Copy and paste the contents into a TEXT file or Notepad. Do not use a word
processing document file type.
Step 4. Reverse the order to restore data to the parameter dump.
Step 5. Click SAVE when you have copied over the existing text with the new text. to
save the parameters to the new HI 4050 instrument.
NOTE
In some instances, the calibration data cannot be transferred between 4050 controllers
using the SD card or the parameter dump method. The problem occurs when a controller
containing the old analog weigh scale card’s data tries to copy to a controller with the new
version of the Analog weigh scale card used in the HI 4050+. The differences in the cards
prohibit a direct data transfer. That non-transferral of calibration data happens for new to
old and old to new.
You can tell if the controller has the latest analog weigh scale card if on the front display
HI 4050+ is displayed on the main display line.

Operation
••••••
Chapter 7 contains step-by-step instructions for operating the Hardy Process Solutions
HI 4050 Weight Controller. The procedures include complete instructions for operating the
Weight Controller from the front panel and from the Web page. Operating procedures
primarily include Taring and/or zeroing the instrument and creating setpoints. We highly
recommend reading the procedures before operating the Weight Controller. Being familiar
with the operating procedures insures that the Controller will provide trouble free service.
Getting Started
Before operating the Hardy HI 4050 Weight Controller, check to make sure the following
procedures have been performed:
• Power and Load Point cables properly installed.
• Communication cables properly installed.
• Calibration Performed.

Overview
The Front Panel Display is a five-line Graphic LCD. The Summary screen displays the
current weight in the selected mode (Gross, Net or available Rate of Change) and the
selected engineering units (lb, oz, lb/oz, kg, g, Ton, t (Metric Ton). The screen displays the
menus for Configuration, Calibration, Test and Operation.
Button Functions
Four buttons below the screen activate the functions named on the screen above each
button. These functions vary depending on the screen selected.
For example to Zero the instrument, press the button directly below the ZERO function.
Up/Down - Left/Right Buttons
The Up or Down arrow s move the cursor
vertically allowing the user to scroll through a list
or menu. Use them to move from one sub-menu to
another or to increase / decrease displayed values.
The Left / Right arrow buttons move the cursor
horizontally left or right.

Button
Exit Button
Exit returns to the previous menu. The Exit button only appears when
you enter a menu, it does not appear on the Summary Display.
Clear Button
Clear (CLR) clears the total Alphanumeric Entry and repositions the
cursor for the first entry. It is a good idea to clear an existing parameter
value before entering a new value to avoid making mistakes. CLR only
appears when you enter a menu. It does not appear on summary or
operation displays.
Zero Button
Use the Zero button in Gross mode to zero the selected scale to within the tolerance level.
Use of this function should not exceed the value entered for zero tolerance.
Tare Button
Tares the selected scale. The Tare button sets the Net Weight equal to 0. In Net Mode (i.e.
a channel displays Net in the Summary display) the weight changes to 0.00. In Gross mode
the Gross Weight does not change; however, the Net weight is changed to 0.00.
Print Button
The Print button prints the Gross, Net and Tare weights to an attached printer. If the Rate
of Change option is activated, the print button prints the ROC as well. If the Scoreboard is
activated, the Print button does not function.
Entering Alphanumeric Values
To enter a number, letter, or punctuation mark, use the Up or Down arrows. Move the cursor
to where you want to enter the value. Press the Up or Down arrows until the letter or number
you want appears. Press the Right or Left buttons to move the cursor to the next position.
The two punctuation marks are the period (.) and the minus (-) sign.

Starting Up for the First Time
When the HI 4050 Weight Controller first powers, a Summary display shows the weight in
Gross or Net mode. To change from Gross, Net or ROC (Rate of Change) mode, use the
Mode button.
WARNING After configuring your system and turning the instrument off, make sure that the
SMM-SD is installed correctly before powering up. If the SMM-SD is not installed, the
instrument returns to a default condition which probably does not meet your process
requirements and could result in product/property damage or personal injury.
AVERTISSEMENT – Après avoir configuré votre système et mis l’appareil sous
hors-tension, assurez-vous que le SMM-SD est installé correctement avant de le
remettre sous tension. Si le SMM-SD n’est pas installé, l’appareil retournera
dans les conditions à défaut, ce qui probablement ne correspondra pas à vos
exigences de fonctionnement et pourra endommager le produit ou provoquer
des blessures personnelles.
Step 1. To Tare the Scale, press the Tare button. If the Tare is successful, you will get a
message: “Tare OK.” If the Tare is unsuccessful, you will get a message “Tare
Failed.” Check the Motion Tolerance parameter. Chapter 4 provides configuration
instructions for the Motion Tolerance Parameter.
Step 2. To Zero the Scale, press the Zero button. If the Zero is successful you will get a
message: “Zero OK.” If the Zero is unsuccessful, you will get a “Zero Failed”
message. Check the Zero and AutoZero Tolerances parameters. Instructions for
Zero Tolerance and AutoZero Tolerance Parameter Setup is in Chapter 4.

Set Points Configuration
About Set Points
Operators may need to reset a set point target weight. For example, if a packaging operation
switches from 10 pound bags to five pound bags, you would change a set point target
weight from ten to five. Target weight is one of several values on the set point web page,
but in most cases, operators will not be asked to change the other values. Instructions for
Configuring the instrument can be found in Chapter 4.
Target
This is the target weight for your application. You may be asked to reset this value if a
production activity changes.

Setpoint page.
Step 1. If your system uses more than one setpoint (up to
four may be used), you will need to know which
one you should change. To select the Setpoint to
configure, use the pull-down list below Help. In
our example we selected Setpoint 1, which appears
in the text field.
Step 2. Select the Mode from the pull-down list. In our
example we selected Gross.
Step 3. From the Type pull down list, select the Type of
control you want for your application. In our
example we selected “Loss in Weight.”
Step 4. Enter the Target weight for your application in the
Target field. Our example shows 180.0 lbs.
Step 5. In the Preact text field, enter the Preact value for
your application. Our example uses 5.00 lbs.
Step 6. In the Deadband field, enter the value for your
application. Set points deactivate at the set point
plus the deadband. Set the deadband larger than the
preact to prevent rapidly fluctuating setpoint
states. In our example we entered 8.00 lbs.

• Do not disconnect any electrical plug, connector or terminal unless an identification tag
is present or one is attached. Always note where the connector or plug was attached to
the electrical component or wiring harness.
• Always install complete hardware groups (Screws, Washers, Lock Washers, Spacers,
Etc.) back to the original point of removal.
• Always replace broken or damaged modules or hardware immediately!
• Always check to be sure that no loose parts are sitting on printed circuit boards or
electrical connectors or wires when disassembling or reassembling.
• Always protect printed circuit boards from electrostatic discharge (ESD). Always use
approved ESD wrist straps and anti-static pads.
• Always perform a final inspection after completing any reassembly to be sure that all
fasteners are tight, all connectors are secure and there are no loose parts on any of the
printed circuit boards in the Weight Controller.
• Always follow proper safety procedures when working on or around the Weight
Controller.
This chapter describes several tests that can shorten the time for troubleshooting. Most
problems require the use of two or more tests to determine the cause.
If a problem is isolated to a load cell, it may not mean the load cell is the damaged
component. Mechanical imbalances and system piping stress (lack of piping vibration
isolators, cables draped over pipes etc.) can make a load cell seem to be the problem.

PASS/FAIL and Variance Test
This test computes the variation of the A/D counts. The results show the variance and
indicate pass or fail. The test is valid to help break down the problem into smaller divisions.
Unstable test results can be caused by an internal A/D processor fault, grounding, power
connection, EMI/RFI above specified CE limits, or noisy load cell input.
Raw A/D Count
These numbers reflect a weight change at the smallest measurement, the internal analog-todigital converter computer register.
Raw A/D Average Counts
These numbers also reflect weight change at the smallest measurement, the internal analogto-digital converter computer register - except that this reading is averaged using the
AVERAGES setting parameter from the controller’s configuration. Using the maximum
number of internal averages and the 10ms update equals a maximum delay of 2.55 seconds

mV/V are DC voltage signals between 0-3.0000 mv/v This is the mv signal divided by
the sense volts to derive the mv/v level. This reading will be to 4 decimal place resolution.
mV DC voltage signals are between 0-15 millivolts. Overloads and negative millivolt
readings are not shown as actual readings but 15.3 for over voltage and 0.0 for negative
voltage. You will need to use a multimeter with a 200 or 300mVDC range to view the out
of range voltages. Millivolt/Volt equals the output from a load cell per each volt of
excitation. The HI 4050 reads the load cell output in mV/V which is a higher resolution (4
decimal places) reading than a mV reading, thereby providing more sensitivity to enable
you to troubleshoot the condition of the load cell in question under certain conditions. Load
Cells are rated in Millivolts/Volts.
RTZ (Return to Zero) Test
This check is to see if the scale returns to a zero reading condition when it is empty. Run
this test only when the scale is empty. When the scale is calibrated at the ZERO or
Reference zero, there is a WAIT period during which the WEIGHT readings are collected.
After a valid calibration has been completed, the test compares the original weight reading
with collected and current readings. If the difference is more than the combined Motion and
the Zero Tolerance parameters the test will fail.

Keep the ground cable length to earth ground as short as possible.
Install a new ground rod if the cable length is excessive.
Cable Cuts or breaks in the load cell insulation allow moisture to wick into the
cable and load points. This can setup stray capacitance charges and allow
ground currents to exist. This could create a highly intermittent situation.
B1.3

Cable Shielding Ground low voltage cable shields only at the controller end.
Grounding both cable ends produce ground currents.
Verify, with and ohm meter, the shield is only grounded at the weight controller.
Disconnect eh shield at the controller and check for an open circuit between ground
and shield. Reconnect the shield to ground and confirm a proper ground path from
the IT Junction box to the controller.
Verify the shield is not connected to ground at the IT Junction Box.
Load cell shields only pass thru the IT Junction boxes and are not connected

Insure the load is directly over or under the load point to avoid side-loading.
Make sure there isn’t any side loading from piping or external forces.
Install flexures on all piping to insure a free floating vessel.
Make sure the vessel and load cell mounts are mechanically stable and

Example: 3mV/V load cells produce approximately 15mV at full load. That is 5 volts
excitation x 3 mV/V. A scale capacity of 1,000 lbs. with 100 lbs. of deadload when

System and Load Cell Tests
Overview of Typical Load Cell System
The typical system consists of one or more load cells/points, a summing junction box, and
an HI 4050 Weight Controller.
Load cell sensor point - Used to measure pressure, weight, or torque, the sensor point is a
strain gauge-based force transducer that generates an electrical signal proportional to the
load applied. This can be done using either tension or compression type load cells/points.
When the HI 4050 sends the load cell a 5-volt DC excitation signal that powers the load
cell, the force transducer generates a millivolt output proportional to the load (0-10mv DC
for 2mv/V load cells/ points or 0-15mv DC for 3mv/V load cells/points).
Weight Controller - This is part of the HI 4050 that, among other functions, powers the
load cell(s)/point(s), receives the millivolt signal output from the load cell(s)/point(s), and
digitizes, interprets, communicates and displays the results.

INTEGRATED TECHNICIAN
INTEGRATED TECHNICIAN (IT®) is an optional diagnostics utility that enables the
operator to rapidly troubleshoot individual load cells. The option requires an HI 215IT
Summing junction box (shown above) that provides distinct inputs for each load cell.
Without the HI 215IT Summing junction box, there is no way to isolate the signals from
different load cells. If any load cell fails, the test will output a FAIL response without
identifying the problem load cell. For numerical values, the system will return an average
of all the load cell responses and, in some cases, will return values that cannot be used.
With the HI 215IT Summing junction box and IT firmware, the HI 4050 can provide both
average numerical values and values specific to each load cell, including PASS/FAIL
values for each load cell, as shown below.

Chapter 8
To view this screen on your system, see Weight and Voltage Tests. The number for a load
sensor is based on the connections in the IT junction box. Check the installation sequence
in the box to determine which load sensor is number 1, 2 and so on. You can use the IT
functions from either the front panel or Web interface. If you do not have the optional IT
junction box, some of the options described below will not appear on either interface.
Stability Test
The Stability test lets you check the A/D Raw count and average. With the IT option, it tests
and reports for each load cell. The test sends the load cell data to the analog-to-digital
convertor and calculates the mean squared variation from the average reading, using 100
samples. The test passes if the mean squared variation is less than 5.0.
If the weighing system passes the stability test, the results show OK and the variation and
mean results are posted. FAIL indicates that the Mean Squared Variation is greater than
5.0 so the instrument is considered unstable. In that case, see the Troubleshooting Flow
Charts Section.

Weight and Voltage Tests
The Weight and Voltage tests are used to diagnose a weighing system and, if certain types
of problems are indicated, determine their source. It provides the total scale input to the
instrument such as mV, mV/V and Weight in the units selected (i.e. lbs, kg, oz, g).

Weight and Voltage Test from the Web interface
Since the IT Web page shows all the weight and
voltage values at once, it is the preferred method for
troubleshooting. Click Weight and Voltage to open the
Operation/Diagnostics - Weight & Voltage page.
To view individual load sensor data, click Do IT Test.
These readings allow you to determine if the problem is in the instrument (internal) or in a
load sensor(s) (external). The mV reading is a coarser reading than the mV/V or Weight
readings. The mV reading is sufficient to balance the corners of your scale or vessel.
The specification range for the Weight Controller is 0-15 mV, so a reading between 0-15
mV is within the normal range. A reading outside this range (15.5 mV, 3.1 mV/V Maximum
or any negative values) would normally indicate that the problem is external to the
Instrument (most likely improper wiring).
If all the load sensor readings are 0.00, something is wrong between the HI 4050 and the
HI 215IT junction box or with the junction box itself. Either the cable is disconnected, or
something is causing the junction box to not transmit the readings to the HI 4050.
If you do not get a reading for one or possibly two or more load sensors (Sensor 3 for
example reads 0.00 or the reading is either larger or smaller than it should be) and you know
that the Load Sensors are connected to the junction box, the individual load sensor cable is
disconnected from the junction box or the load sensor is malfunctioning.

Return to Zero test
The RTZ column on the Web interface Operation/
Diagnostics - Weight & Voltage IT page means Return to
Zero. This test determines whether the instrument returns to
a starting zero point. PASS indicates that you are within the
sum of the preset Motion and Zero Tolerance settings.
FAIL indicates that you are outside the sum of the preset Motion and Zero Tolerance
settings. If this results from too much build up on the scale, you need to clean the scale or
you have scale problems. Run this test whenever you cannot zero the scale. If the Return to
Zero test fails, see the E Flow Char - Non Return to Zero for troubleshooting help.
Checking Inputs and Optional Outputs
NOTE
Outputs are an option. See Digital I/O Card.
You can check to see which inputs or outputs
are operating from the Web interface by
clicking on I/O at the bottom of the Operation Diagnostics page to display the Input and
Output page. If an Input or Output is in use the
I/O reads 1. If an Input or Output is not in use, the I/O reads 0. In our example none of the
inputs (User Switches) are being used so they all read 0.

Viewing System C2 Load Sensors
The Sensor 1 and Sensor 2, etc. data on the Web interface Operation/ Diagnostics - Weight
& Voltage IT page may be C2 sensors or non-C2 sensors. To check only the C2-type load
cells, see the Operations - Diagnostic C2 Data page, which tells you how many C2 load
cells are in use and provides the C2 version, Serial Number, Output Resistance, Output
Voltage and Capacity for a selected cell. The Read Sensor button allows you to read this
information for all C2 load sensors in the system. When you press the Read Sensor button,
it receives the information from the first load sensor. The serial number is important if you
need to contact Hardy Process Solutions Technical Support. You do not need an IT
summing box.
Step 1. Click on “C2” at the bottom of the
page to display the C2 Data page
listing the number of C2 load
sensors that are found in the
weighing system.
Step 2. From the Read Data from: pulldown list, select the C2 load
sensor you want to view.
Our example shows only one C2
load sensor found. If no C2 load
sensors are installed the “C2
Sensors Found” reads 0.
The information on this page is C2
load sensor data only. It does not
refer to any position on the IT
Junction box, nor does it tell you
the operating condition of the load
sensor. To determine the condition
of a load cell and its position, use
Weight and Voltage/IT Test.
