Description
The HI 2151/30WC is a compact, multipurpose, microprocessor-based
weight controller (See Fig. 1-1) that is used for a wide variety of process weighing applications, including batching, blending, check weighing, filling/dispensing, force measurement, level by weight, and weight
rate monitoring. As a standalone product, the HI 2151/30WC can control as many as eight set point relays, and transmit data via analog,
serial and BCD communications. The weight controller can also be
1-1
HI 2151/30WC MANUAL
used as a front end for a control system, transmitting weight values via
a standard operator-selectable serial port (RS-232, RS-422/485) to programmable logic controllers (PLC's), computers, and printers.
Data is displayed alpha-numerically on the six-digit, fourteen segment
LED display and graphically on the 30-segment bar-graph display.
Weight values can be based on either net, gross, Rate-of-Change
(ROC), peak hold or totalized weight values in pounds or kilograms.
An optional Allen Bradley Remote I/O and PROFIBUS interface is
available for communication to programmable logic controllers. The
weight controller’s 20-bit, analog-to-digital converter updates twenty
times per second and is capable of 985,000 counts of display resolution. This provides enough resolution for accurate weight measurement
and enough control to tolerate large “dead” loads and over sizing of
load cells/sensors. Users can enter commands either from the communication ports or locally from a sixteen-button, front-panel keypad. A
portion of the keys can be locked out to limit operator access and protect data. A limited number of commands can be entered through a rear
Remote Functions connector.
WAVERSAVER®
Typically, mechanical noise from other machinery in a plant environment exists in all industrial weight control and measurement applications. WAVERSAVER® enables the weight controller to distinguish the
actual weight data from the mechanical noise that comes in on the load
cell signal. WAVERSAVER® can be configured from the front panel to
ignore noise with frequencies as low as 0.25 Hz. Users can select one
of four higher additional cut-off frequencies to provide a faster instrument response time. The default factory configuration is 0.50 Hz vibration frequency immunity.
C2® Calibration
C2 second-generation electronic calibration can calibrate a scale system 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 2151/30WC. Each
Hardy Instruments C2-certified load sensor sends a distinct digital signal that the HI 2151/30WC uses to calculate weight and count the number of sensors in the system. To factor in any known weight on the
scale, the user enters a reference value from the front panel. (A zero
reference value indicates there is no weight on the scale.)
The instrument is also capable of performing traditional calibration
such as with the use of certified test weights.
IT®
1-2
INTEGRATED TECHNICIAN™ is a built-in diagnostics utility that
continuously monitors the system and allows the operator to rapidly
troubleshoot problems from the front panel. Adding an optional an IT
junction box extends the diagnostics capability to any load sensor.
Chapter 1 - Overview
Excitation Monitor
Continuously monitors the system excitation current for evidence of
open or shorted load sensors or damaged or broken excitation wire(s),
including the wires between the instrument and the junction box. If the
measured current deviates from a ± 10% tolerance, an "ERRExC"
(Error Excitation) displays on the front panel. In a system with C2 load
sensors, IT computes the correct current and displays alarms if the initial measured current is out of tolerance. Without C2 load sensors, the
initial read is assumed to be correct and is used as the standard.
Digital Volt Meter
(DVM)
The DVM displays millivolts (mV to one digit to the right of the decimal point) and millivolts per volt (mV/V to four digits to the right of
the decimal point) for both the whole system and individual load sensors. The DVM helps enables the user to isolate a faulty component
from the front panel. The voltage reading can be used to level a balanced system and to make corner adjustments to platform scales. Accuracy is ± 2% or better of full scale.
Return to Zero Test
This test compares the original voltage reading saved at calibration
against the current voltage reading of an empty vessel and displays
either a pass (OK) or fail (ERR) message. The test checks for load sensor damage (due to electrical zero shift or abnormal mechanical forces)
that causes binding sensors in the system.
Weighing System Tests
•
With an IT junction box, the test will pass or fail the individual load
sensors providing a true fault isolation capability.
•
Without an IT junction box, the test will pass or fail on the basis of
a cumulative reading rather than an individual reading of each load
sensor.
(Requires the IT Junction Box) This test does the following analysis to
diagnose drifting or unstable weight reading problems:
1. It disconnects the controller and engages an internal reference signal to see if the problem is within the instrument.
2. It disconnects the load sensors and engages an internal (in the junction box) reference signal to see if the cable between the instrument
and the Junction Box is causing the problem.
3. It reads the weight of each load sensor to see if a load sensor might
be causing the problem.
Weight readings from the individual load sensors makes this test useful
for making cornering, leveling, and load-sharing adjustments.
Secure Memory
Module (SMM)
The Secure Memory Module stores critical HI 2151/30WC configuration, calibration and setup data (excluding Peak Hold) and protects it
from corruption. When a new parameter is entered during system operation, the SMM automatically updates that value in its memory. Since
the SMM is conveniently accessible from the instruments rear panel,
data stored in one HI 2151/30WC may be restored to the new instrument by physically transferring the SMM.
1-3
HI 2151/30WC MANUAL
NOTE:
The SMM is limited to 1,000,000 lift-time write functions. A write is performed after
any parameter change to the calibration, zero, and tare functions.
NOTE:
You cannot transfer the SMM from the HI 2151/30WC to the HI 2151/20WC.
Set PointRelays
The HI 2151/30WC is fitted with two standard, internal, selectable and
mechanical form C (SPDT) relays. Six optional, external, solid-state
relays are available and are field configurable as form A or B types.
Both types have individual set point, preact, and deadband parameters.
Each can be programmed to respond to the standard Net or Gross
modes of operation or the optional ROC, Totalizer or Peak Hold modes.
These relays can be used to open or close valves or gates or to turn
motors, mixers, vibration equipment, heaters, coolers, etc. on or off.
Serial Port
One standard serial port can be configured to receive commands and
transmit weight data to a serial device such as a printer output or bidirectional port. By resetting jumpers within the instrument, it can be
configured for RS 232 (-A1), RS 422 (-A2) or RS 485 (-A3). Baud
rates are user selectable at 600, 1200, 2400, 4800, 9600 or 19,200.
Hardy Link LAN
The Hardy Link Local Area Network (LAN) assigns an address to each
instrument and provides the firmware necessary to handle in-coming
and out-going communications.
Remote Functions
Rear panel input of a level or momentary grounding that can be used to:
Tare the instrument., activate a print sequence, totalize the display,
force the Net mode, toggle between pounds or kilograms, initiate the
optional ROC (Rate-of-Change) mode, freeze the front panel display or
one of the communications ports, and clear the totalizer or peak hold
values. This is useful for adding large additional industrialized switches
to the control panel.
Auto Zero Tracking
Auto Zero Tracking causes the display to indicate zero as long as any
"live weight" on the scale is below the set zero tolerance and the scale
is not in motion. This capability allows the instrument to ignore material build-up in the weigh system within the set zero tolerance.
NOTE:
Do not use auto zero tracking to correct a drifting-scale problem. Auto zero tracking will
zero and write to the SMM every second if there is a change in weight. A correct graduation
size is required to stop excessive weight changes and reduce write commands to the SMM.
See Chapter Six for graduation size setup guidelines.
NOTE:
The amount of weight zeroed off is cumulative. The autozero command will fail if the
current gross weight plus any previously zeroed amount exceeds the zero tolerance.
Auto Zero Tracking is enabled when switch eight of S3 (the configuration dipswitch), labeled Config on the instrument's rear panel is in the
on position.

(ROC) (-C2)
The ROC option measures and displays the rate at which a material
enters or is dispensed from the scale over a period of time. The register
for ROC holds 21 entries. New weight values are input to the register at
the rate of 1/20th of the time base. The first register is subtracted from
the 21st Register, which is one time base older than the 1st 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.
Set Point Options

Input Power Wiring
DO NOT OPERATE WITH INCORRECT LINE VOLTAGE. TO DO SO WILL
RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE OR PERSONAL INJURY. CHANGING
THE INPUT VOLTAGE RATING BETWEEN 120 AND 240 VAC REQUIRES
MODIFICATIONS TO THE POWER/RELAY CIRCUIT BOARD AND
RELAY OUTPUT BOARD. THIS PROCEDURE SHOULD ONLY BE DONE
BY AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL. FOR FURTHER ASSISTANCE CONTACT
HARDY INSTRUMENTS, CUSTOMER SUPPORT.
Step 1. The HI 2151/30WC is factory configured to operate from
either 120 or 240 VAC, 50 or 60 Hz power. Check the model
number of your unit to verify the voltage. If the unit is configured for 240 VAC, an "E2" will be printed on the name plate.
Step 2. The power and relay circuit card filters and conditions AC
power. However, for noisy power lines, external conditioning
may be required. Contact Hardy Instruments Customer Support for more information.
Step 3. The AC power should be supplied by a "clean" primary line,
directly from the power panel. This line should not supply any
other equipment, including the feeding unit, and should be
supplied with a minimum 10 amp breaker.
Step 4. To connect power to the controller, install a 3-wire, minimum
of a 14 AWG power line to the 3-pin terminal block connector. (See Fig. 3-8)

Load Cell/Point
Connections (J1)
About Load Cell
Wiring
NOTE:
The unit is capable of powering a maximum of eight 350 ohm load
cells/points. If more than eight load cells/points are used, an external
power supply is required. Figures 3-9, 3-10, Load cell/point connections (J1) shows how to connect a full six-wire hookup, a four-wire
hookup, and an external excitation supply. Load cell/point cables are
connected to J1 through a furnished mating plug, P1.
Contact Hardy Customer Support for installation information when using an external
power supply.
To ensure a "clean" signal from the load cells/points, follow these precautions :
•
•
•
•
Load cell/point cables MUST be run separate from all other cables
and in their own conduit. Load cell/point cable shield should be
attached to ground screw on rear panel only.
Six-wire, shielded load cell/point cable should be used for lengths
of 50 feet or more or if intrinsic safety barriers are used. Eight-wire
shielded cable, preferably Hardy C2 cable, must be used for C2 calibration.
Avoid load cell/point cable splices. If cables are longer than needed,
coil up and tape excess cable. If cables are short, use an appropriate
junction box. When terminal lugs are installed on load cell/point
cables, Hardy Instruments recommends the lug be crimped and soldered.
When connecting the HI 2151/30WC weight controller to the HI
215IT junction box using C2 load cell/point cable (6020-0001), use
the following color code:

Analog Output Option
Card Configuration
Procedures -B1
About the Analog
Output Card Option
The analog transmitter outputs to a receiving device (PLC, Computer
etc.). The transmitter outputs a user selectable Gross, Net, Rate of
Change (ROC), Peak or Total Weight as 0-5V, 0-10V, 0-20mA, or 420mA (via the front panel you can reverse the voltage and current
ranges, See Chapter 5 for procedures). When configuring the Analog
Output Card, both the receiver and the HI 2151\30WC must be in
the same mode (e.g. Gross, Net, Rate of Change (ROC) Peak or
Total Weight). The analog card can also span the voltage or milliamp
ranges over a portion of the weight data. The outputs are electrically
and optically isolated from the main board. The Analog Output Card is
adjusted at the factory. (See Chapter 5, Section 5.6 for Setup Instructions)

Chapter 6 - Calibration
CHAPTER 6 - CALIBRATION
Chapter 6 covers calibration procedures for the HI 2151/30WC weight
controller. Users and service personnel should be familiar with these
procedures before installing or operating the HI2151/30WC.
For the weight controller to work properly, it must be calibrated prior to
operation. We also recommend that the instrument be re-calibrated
periodically or when not in use for extended periods. Be sure to follow
the procedures completely to ensure that the weights read by the controller are accurate.
All calibration should be done in the Gross mode.
Pre-Calibration Procedures
Mechanical Check
Procedures
Step 1. 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 single and double ended shear beam load cells
there is an arrow (↓) that indicates the direction of the
applied load. If the arrow is pointing in the wrong direction,
change the position of the load cell so that it is mounted in
the direction of the applied load.
Step 2. 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.
•
•
A load cell must be mounted in such a way that 100% of the
load (Vessel w/Contents) is vertically passed through a load
cell. (See Fig. 6-1)
Check to see that nothing is binding the load cell. This
means that nothing is draped across the scale/vessel or the
load cell, such as a hose, electrical cord, tubes, or other
objects.

Vessel
FIG. 6-1 PROPERLY INSTALLED LOAD CELL W/NO BINDING
Step 3. Check to see that nothing is coming in contact with the scale/
vessel other than service wires and piping that have been
properly mounted with flexible connectors.
Electrical Check
Procedures
Step 1. Check to see that there is power to the controller.
•
•
•
If there is power to the controller The front panel display
should be lit.
If an error message (ERREXC) appears in the display, it
means there is a problem in the system. See Troubleshooting Chapter 8 for corrective action.
If the display appears with a value the unit is ready for calibration.
Step 2. Typical Load Cell/Point Input/Output Measurements (EXC &
SIG Outputs)
•
6-2
The HI 2151/30WC is designed to supply 5 vdc excitation
to as many as eight 350 ohm load cells/points.
Chapter 6 - Calibration
•
•
•
•
The expected output from each load cell/point depends on
the mV/V rating of the load cell/point and weight.
For example, a 2 mV/V load cell/point will respond with a
maximum of 10 mVDC at full weight capacity of the system which 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 be 10 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" of the vessel. "Dead Load"
is the weight of the vessel and appurtenances only, with no
product loaded. In our example we will assume the dead
load to be 500 lbs. (See Fig. 6-2)

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.
Load cell/point measurements are checked with a digital volt meter at the summing
junction box or the J1 connector on the rear panel of the HI 2151/30WC or use Integrated Technician. if using the IT Junction Box.

The bar graph mode and the display mode are totally independent. Make sure you
know what mode each are in before reading.
Step 1. Place a load (weight) on the scale or vessel.
Step 2. Check to see if the weight reading changes on the display in
the proper direction.
• e.g. if the display reads 100 pounds and a 20 pound load is
placed on the vessel or scale, the display should read 120
or some value over 100.
• If the display reads 80 pounds and a 20 pound load is
placed on the vessel or scale, the reading is going in the
wrong direction and indicates a problem. (See the Chapter
8, Troubleshooting for corrective action.)
• If the display is reading improperly or shows no change,
something is wrong either with the setup or configuration.
Step 3. If the display changes in the proper direction, remove the
weight and proceed to calibrate the controller.

The displayed unit of measure can be changed during normal operation. However, all
internal calculations use the unit of measure selected during calibration.
This parameter sets the number of decimal places to use in weight values (Total weight may be set to a different number of decimal places).
Step 1. To determine the highest recommended decimal point, divide
the total load cell capacity by 10,000, and use the number of
decimal places in your answer as a reference. For example:
10,000 EU scale divided by 10,000 = 1, no decimal point is
recommended. 100 EU load cell capacity divided by 10,000 =
.01, requiring two decimal points or less is recommended.
Step 2. Press the Enter button. Six number eights (88888.8) are displayed.
Step 3. To select the decimal point location, push the left arrow ←
until the decimal point is in the correct position. The decimal

NOTE:
Step 1. The base motion number can be calculated by using the following formula:
Base Motion Number = Total Load Cell Capacity/10,000 x 3
Motion Tolerance must be greater than or equal to the Graduation Sizes. Recommendation would be three graduation sizes.
Step 2. The motion tolerance is the tolerance value used to determine
if the scale is in motion.
Step 3. The controller displays the MOTION LED when a change in
the displayed (averaged) reading is outside the value entered.
Step 4. Default value is 3 units of measure.
Step 5. Press the -/Test/Clr button to clear the current value.
Step 6. Use the numeric keys to type in the new tolerance value.
Step 7. Press Enter. The Graduation Size GRAD is displayed.
Setting the
Graduation Size

NOTE:
The graduation size sets the minimum increment the instrument will
compute and display. The Base Graduation Number is calculated by
dividing the total load cell capacity by 10,000. For example: With two
decimal points selected, the graduation size 10 will display increments
of .10 engineering units. With two decimals points selected, the graduation size 50 will display increments of .50 engineering units.
If you undersize your graduation setting to increase display resolution, do not use
auto zero tracking. This combination will damage the SMM due to excessive write
operations.
Step 1. Press the Enter button. The graduation size 20 appears on the

Setting the Zero
Tolerance (0 TOL)
NOTE
This sets a weight limit for an operator adjusting the weight of an
empty scale using the upper left ZERO push button. This value is the
zero tracking window and reflects an amount of weight differential of
an empty scale. Normally, a Zero Tolerance amount equal to 2% of the
total load cell capacity is acceptable. The default zero tolerance is 10
units of measure (10 is displayed). The maximum Zero Tolerance number that can be entered is 32766.
The amount of weight zeroed off is cumulative. The zero command will fail if the current
gross weight plus any previously zeroed amount exceeds the zero tolerance.
Step 1. Press the Enter button. The default display will appear (10) or
the previous set value (10).
Step 2. Press the -/Test/Clr button to clear the current value
Step 3. Use the numeric keys to enter the new value.
Step 4. Press the Enter button to accept the new value. Zero Tolerance
sub-menu (O TOT) appears on the display.
Setting The Auto Zero
Tolerance (A0 TOT)
NOTES:
This parameter sets a weight limit that applies when the Auto Zero
Tracking feature (0 TRK) or a communication command adjusts an
empty scale. When 0 TRK is enabled, the display is reset to zero when
the weight is within the set limits and not in motion.When the Auto
Zero Tolerance (0 TOT) is enabled (Set Dip Switch #8, See Chapter 4),
any weight within the set zero tolerance limit will cause the display to
automatically read zero when the scale is not in motion.
Normally an acceptable Zero Tolerance amount is less than or equal to
1.5% of the total load cell capacity. The default auto zero tolerance is
10 units of measure, and the maximum number you can enter is 32766.
Incorrect graduation size or a drifting scale with auto zero tracking enabled can damage
the SMM.
The amount of weight zeroed off is cumulative. The autozero command will fail if the
current gross weight plus any previously zeroed amount exceeds the zero tolerance.
Step 1. Press the Enter button. The default display will appear (10) or
the previous set value.
Step 2. Press the -/Test/Clr button to clear the current value

Weight can accumulate up to the value entered for the Auto Zero Tolerance and the
instrument will automatically display a 0.
Step 1. This setting is to aid in ignoring the effects of material impact.
If material is not entering or exiting the scale evenly, necessary weight fluctuations can be seen. Averages also contribute
50 ms each to the overall time to calculate the scale weight.
Applications requiring very quick weight readings should
reduce this setting to it's minimum. If the weight is unstable
due to material impacting, increase the averages. This sets the
number of weight readings that will be used to compute the
displayed weight. The average is a sliding average so that a
new average is available for display at every reading.
Step 2. This sets the number of weight readings which will be used to
compute the displayed weight.
Step 3. The average is a sliding average so that a new average is
available for display at every reading.
Step 4. The default number of readings per average is 10.
Step 5. Press the Enter button.
Step 6. Use the numeric keys to enter the new value in the range of 1
to 200. (If you enter a number greater than 200 or a negative
number, the ERR 3 statement will appear.) Press the -/Test/Clr
button. Enter a new number.
Step 7. Press the Enter button. The Scale Capacity (SC CAP) submenu appears.
Setting the Scale
Capacity (SC CAP)
Step 1. If this value is exceeded by 5% an HI indication appears on
the front display. Communications to and from optional
devices are not effected. This value is the nominal operating
capacity of the scale. The value you set should be the small
value between the capacity of the vessel (volume in Gallons
or Liters converted to weight in Lbs or Kgs) and the combined
weight capacity of the load cells (Lbs or Kgs).
Step 2. The value you set should be the smaller value between the
capacity of the vessel (volume in gallons or Liters converted
6-10
Chapter 6 - Calibration
to weight in Lbs or Kgs) and the combined weight capacity of
the load cells (Lbs or Kgs).
For example: A vessel's capacity in volume is 2,000 gallons,
in this case water. (One gallon of water weighs approximately
8.54 lbs.) The weight will be 17,080 lbs. The combined live
load capacity of the load cells is 20,000 lbs. Select the lesser
of the two values which in our example is 17,080 lbs. Enter
17,080.
Step 3. Press the Enter button. The WAVERSAVER® (WVRSVR)
sub-menu appears.
WAVERSAVER®
(WVRSVR)
Step 1. The lower the vibration the more steps and time required to
calculate the vibration frequency. Adjust the Average and
WAVERSAVER settings to establish minimal weighing time.
Use WAVERSAVER settings 1-3 for low amplitude high frequency vibrations. Use WAVERSAVER settings 3-5 for high
amplitude low frequency vibrations.
Step 2. Press the Enter button.
Step 3. A value appears. The Default setting is 4.
Step 4. There are 5 selectable levels. 1 provides the least vibration
immunity with the fastest response time, and 5 provides the

Soft Calibration
Procedures for Single
Load Cell/Point
Systems
NOTE:
Soft Calibration for systems with more than one load cell/point contact: Hardy Instruments Inc., Customer Support Department.
About Soft
Calibration
•
Soft-Cal is a procedure that quickly calibrates a scale system, onsite, without test weights, material substitution or forced calibration.
•
The process uses the certified, full scale mV/V output (sensitivity
and range) of each load cell.
•
The full scale mV/V output of each load cell is mathematically
combined with a measured reference point, usually but not always
zero, to calibrate the scale.
•
The full scale mV/V data is on the calibration certificate which is
shipped with every Hardy load cell.
•
The process assumes a consistent center of gravity on the scale with
even distribution.
6-15
HI 2151/30WC MANUAL
NOTE:
•
All load cells must be correctly installed with no binding of any
kind on the scale.
•
You must use the same length cable as supplied with the load cell.
DO NOT CUT THE CABLE!!!
•
A multiple load cell system, using a junction box, all balance potentiometer and resistors must be zero.
For multiple load cell systems contact your local dealer or Hardy Instruments, Customer Support Department.

NOTE:
The set point value is the target weight or level. It may be set in either
net, gross, ROC*, Total*, or Peak* hold weight units. When entering
this value, the corresponding LED flag will appear on the display. The
operator may toggle this flag to the desired mode by pressing the
MODE button. Refer to the Set point Limits section following installation for a description of set point limits.
Only works when the ROC, Total, or Peak options are installed in the controller.
Set Point Limits
Dead Band Limits
7-4
The dead band value can be set as a positive or negative value. It is
used to prevent relay chatter once the set point is reached.
Chapter 7 - Operation
For example: if a set point value was 1000 pounds and the dead band
was set to -5 pounds, the relay would close at a 1000 pounds but not
open until the weight dropped to 995 pounds. This would be used if a
set point is a high trip limit. A positive dead band would be used for a
low trip limit. Examples are shown for Low and High Trip Limits.
(See Fig. 7-3) Using a set point of 1,000 pounds and a dead band of 800 pounds will cause the level to remain between 200 and 1,000
pounds.
Three General Rules
for Setpoints
1. Set points activate at the set point plus the preact.
2. Set points deactivate at the set point plus the deadband.
3. The deadband should be numerically larger than the preact to prevent relay chatter.

The preact value is the number of units below (negative value) or
above (positive value) the set point value at which the relay will
trip.
It is used as an "in-flight" compensation value when filling a vessel.
If set to zero, there will be no compensation.

Serial Communications
The standard serial ports are user selectable RS-232C, and RS-422/485
which may be configured as a printer output port or as a bi-directional
communication port. Transmission speed is selectable from 600 to
19.2K baud and may be configured for a continuous data output mode.
The port allows host computer control using ASCII character commands and RS 422/485 ports support multiple weight controllers via a
multidrop configuration.
Bi-directional
Communications
RS-232C
One RS-232C allows serial communication from one weight controller
to one peripheral device. The RS-232C is user-selectable as a print-output only port or as a bi-directional control port through the Menu and
jumper settings on the main board. (See Chapter 4 for configuration
information)
Operation
The operation consists of properly executing commands over the serial
port.
RS-422/485
The RS-422/485 meet RS-422 or RS-485 requirements providing drive
over long distances. With the Hardy Link two way multidrop, communication can take place between any of the Hardy Instruments series
2100 controllers and a host computer.
Operation
Operation of the RS-422/485 consist of properly configuring the board
(See Chapter 4, Section 4.1 for configuration information) and executing commands over the port. Commands available and their actions are
identical to the commands for the RS-232C.
Description of 422/
485 Transmission
Modes Available
Many devices available today are called RS-422/485 because their
electrical signals meet or exceed both specifications. This does not necessarily mean they both meet the strict intent of RS-485 to provide for
two wire multidrop networks. They are instead multidrop RS-422 or
four wire RS-485 networks.
RS-485
The RS-485 mode when configured as two wire (2 wire jumper) with
the transmitter enabled.
RS-422
If the unit is in the four wire (4 wire jumper) mode with the transmitter
always enabled, then the board operates in a true RS-422 mode. This
flexibility allows compatibility between the host computer and the HI
2151/30WC.

Wiring and
Electrical
Specifications
Serial communication signal configuration and wiring is dependent on
how the board is configured. The following notes are typical methods
of connection. It should be realized that these methods vary and are
only furnished to offer a starting point for configuration:
Used most frequently. Only one "host" permitted.
Four wire RS-485 or multidrop RS-422 mode
When configured in four wire mode with the transmitter selectively
tri-stated, the board is operating in a four wire RS-485 or multidrop
RS-422 mode. This configuration doesn't meet either specification
but can be easier to program than either true specification.
•
Signal Grounds
A direct connection between signal grounds of the different
devices is not desirable, rather a connection with approximately 100 ohms of resistance is recommended. Signal
ground should NOT be used as a shield.
•
Earth Ground Cable Shield
Typically, cable shields are tied to the ("frame") ground at
the end that is the best earth ground.
Pick up frame ground on the HI 2151/30WC with the phillips head screw on the rear of the instrument labeled Shield.
•
Cable Type
The Tx+/Tx- and Rx+/Rx- wires are twisted pair (with outer
shield).
•
Serial Connector
Each function is wired to two pins to allow only one wire to
be put in each terminal position. (The same electrical signal
is routed to pins one and two on the board.)

The HI 2151/30WC's serial options provide the user with a full complement of RS-232C, RS-422, and RS-485 communications. There is a
standard RS-232C/422/485 serial port on the main board. Each port can
be an output only port to drive a printer or similar device, or as a bidirectional port for both status and control.

Serial Protocol Multidrop Mode
About Serial
Protocol Multidrop
Mode
Hardy Instruments HI 2151/30 WC weight controller employs an
ASCII command protocol and accompanying command set, described
in the following paragraphs. The protocol is via RS-232 or RS-422 with
the network being called Hardy Link. Hardy Link supports a multidrop
configuration.
•
Serial Protocol - Multidrop Mode
Multidrop is a configuration denoting that there are multiple
HI 2151/30WC units connected to a host computer whereby
each HI 2151/30WC receives and sends data through a
unique address. The fastest possible instrument response
will be from the multidrop configuration. The multidrop
configuration also lends itself well to host computer control
of multiple weight controllers. RS-422/485 is utilized and
provides excellent noise immunity and drive capability supporting long cable runs.

HI 2151/30WC MANUAL
NOTE:
The 2151/30WC weight controller contain intelligent front ends to a distributed system, therefore network speed is not usually critical.
Data Formats
Relays, dip switches and LED data along with weight data have their
own special format for transmission. These formats are described in the
following two sections.
Data Formats Binary
Representation
1. Relay, dipswitch and LED numbers are represented by the binary
bit position. In the case of a relay, 0 disables the relay and a 1
enables the relay.
2. Binary bit position:
7

0
3. Relay(binary bit position +1):
7
6
8

4. Example:
To enable relays 4 and 8, the following would be the binary representation:
0
0
1
0
0
0
1
0
This would be 22 hex, hence the command to enable relays 4 and 8
would be E 22.
Data Formats Weight Data Format
1. Weights are transmitted according to the following rules:
•
Positive numbers:
Maximum of 6 numeric + decimal point.
•
Negative numbers:
Maximum of 5 numeric + minus sign + decimal point.
•

Serial commands are transmitted to the instrument in ASCII format.
Each command has a single letter corresponding to the command. The
instrument will accept command strings up to 40 characters (the 40th
will internally default to a carriage return).The front panel serial port
menu allows setup of serial communication parameters, i.e. BAUD,
parity, etc.
The following table uses the mnemonics corresponding to the outgoing
command format (some of which are optional):

This command is used to reset instrument communication. It is typically used when an error or unintelligible response is received from the instrument and
should used sparingly. It is recommended that it not
be used during "normal" communication retries (i.e.
unintelligible response), but instead be used as a last
resort (no response after retries are exhausted).
Internally, it performs the same operations as done
on instrument power-up. Refer to the REL SubCommand under the X (Xmit) Serial Commands
Command Set.
Parallel BCD
Communication
Operating
Procedures
Step 1. The BCD option is setup by first entering the Option Menu
and selecting the BCD menu. The menu display shows a combination of GNTDP (G = gross, n = net, T = tare, D = display,
P = print). (See Chapter 5 for setup instructions)
Step 2. The user may select which data will be present at the output.
If the "P" or print flag is selected, the data will only change at
the output once the PRINT button is pressed or the remote
functions print has been activated. Otherwise, the output will
be continuous.
Step 3. You can trigger the output by any of the following methods:
•
By pressing the PRINT button.
•
By sending a command over the serial port.
7-19
HI 2151/30WC MANUAL
•
By connecting the remote functions print to the remote
functions ground.
Step 4. The output can be tri-stated if the OUTPUT DISABLE is
brought low. This is useful for multiple parallel outputs to be
connected to the same device. Once this input is brought high,
the latched data will be accessible again. The PRINT output is
normally low and goes high for 25 milliseconds. If the opposite polarity (normally high, pulsed low) is desired, move

Step 1. The weight select mode tells the output device which type of
data is present.
Step 2. The user selects which type of data is desired by toggling
"GNT" under the option BCD sub-menu.
Step 3. If all three types of data are requested, then all three will
appear on the output one after the other, 10 milliseconds apart.
Step 4. If "d" is selected, the output will follow the mode being displayed.
Output Disable
Data output is discontinued if the OUTPUT DISABLE, pin 22 on the
PWA (pin 30 on the D-Subminiature connector), is low. The data pins
will be tri-stated even though print pulses will be sent.
Rate of Change
(ROC)
(See Chapter 5 for Setup Procedures) The Rate of Change Option
is used to measure the rate at which a material enters or is dispensed
from a vessel over a given period of time.
To develop ROC data, a Register is used that is 21 entries in length.
New weight is input to the register at the rate of 1/20th of the Time
Base. The 1st register is subtracted from the 21st register. The 21st register is one Time Base older than the 1st register. The results of this
subtraction are divided or multiplied, as necessary, to equal the appropriate measurement time for display, U-SEC, U-MIN, U-HOUR.
Example
In this example the units of display are units per minute (U-Min) with a
Time Base of 10 seconds. Every ½ second new data is inserted into the
1st register and old data is shifted down one register. The 1st register is
subtracted from the 21st register and the results are multiplied by 6 so
the Time Base results of 10 seconds corresponds to Units per Minute.

Disassembly and
Reassembly Notes
and Cautions
•
Always disconnect the power cord before disassembling.
•
Make sure that any disassembly is done in a clean, well ventilated,
properly controlled static environment.
•
Always make sure that the assemblies and sub-assemblies are well
supported and insulated when doing any repairs on the HI 2151/
30WC Weight Controller.
•
Place small fasteners, connectors and electrical parts in closed containers so as not to lose parts during reassembly.
•
Read all the disassembly instructions before any disassembly
begins. Be sure that you are familiar with the procedures. If any of
the instructions for disassembly are unclear, contact Hardy Instruments, Customer Support Department for additional information
and assistance.
•
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
when working on the PROFIBUS Interface Card.
•
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
HI 2151/30WC.
•
Always follow proper safety procedures when working on or
around the HI 2151/30WC Weight Controller.

ground currents to exist. This could create a highly intermittent situation.
Cable Routing Seperate high voltage sources and cables from low voltage signal cables.
Stay a minimum of 14 inches from Magnetic fields and SCR controls.
Avoid parallel high voltage and signal cable runs.
Cable Shielding Ground low voltage cable shields only at the controller end.
Grounding both cable ends will produce ground currents.
Verify, with an ohm meter, the shield is only grounded at the weight controller.
Disconnect the 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 I.T. Junction box to the controller.
Verify the shield is not connect to ground at the I.T. Junction Box.

Monitor
Excitation Monitor
Continuously monitors the system excitation current. Checking for open or shorted load sensors,
or damaged or broken excitation wire(s). This includes the wires between the instrument and the
junction box. If the measured current ReadR deviates from the BaseR, an "ERRExC" (Error
Excitation) displays on the front panel. In a system with C2 load sensors, IT computes the correct
current and displays alarms if the initial measured current is out of tolerance. Without C2 load
sensors the initial current read becomes the standard, whether the initial current is right or wrong.

Interpreting
Diagnostic/Error
Messages
Overview of Typical
Load Cell System
These techniques are limited to external observations. Checking of
internal test points and voltages requires special test equipment and
exposure of the circuit cards during normal operation. This should only
be done by qualified technicians.
1. The typical system consists of one or more load cells/points, a summing junction box, and a weight controller (the HI 2151/30WC).
(See Figure 8-1).
FIG. 8-1 TYPICAL LOAD CELL SYSTEM
a. Load Cell/Sensor/Point - is a strain gauge based force transducer,
which generates an electrical signal proportional to the load applied
to the scale. Load cells/points can be used any place a person needs
8-30
Chapter 8 - Troubleshooting
to measure pressure, load, or torque. This can be accomplished by
either Tension or Compression type load cells/points. The load cell/
point takes as an input the 5 volts DC Excitation Voltage generated
by the HI 2151/30WC, and depending upon how much weight is
applied to the scale, generates a millivolt output (proportional to the
weight, 0-10mv DC for 2mv/V load cells/points or 0-15mv DC for
3mv/V load cells/points).
b. IT Junction Box (Prt. # HI-215IT-SS1 - Stainless Steel, HI-215ITPS1 - Painted, HI-215IT-FG1 - Fiber Glass) - is a system control
box used to sum the incoming and outgoing signals of from one to
four load sensors or load cells. The Junction Box distributes the
excitation voltages to each load sensor/load cell and transfers each
load sensor's performance characteristics and weight signals to the
weight controller. The IT Junction Box when used with the HI
2151/30WC allows for some automated system diagnostics. It uses
connectors for isolation and troubleshooting of the weight system.
The IT Junction Box allows an operator to automatically switch in
an internal test circuit to perform a system stability test and read the
individual load sensor voltages (in millivolts or millivolt/volt) for
up to 4 load sensors from the HI 2151/30WC front panel. Bias voltages will come from the load sensor excitation voltage and will not
affect calibrated weight readings. Switching commands come over
the C2 lines from the weight controller. Nomenclature on the board
will identify positions. The user will know where load sensors 1-4
are physically located by filling out a label mounted to the inside
top cover of the IT Junction Box.
c. Weight Controller - is an electronic instrument which, among other
functions, is used primarily to power the load cell(s)/point(s), take
the millivolt signal output from the load cell(s)/point(s), and digitize, interpret, communicate and display the results as a weight
indication.

NOTE:
The HI 2151/30WC should have a quality power conditioning product installed
between the controller and the AC power source to reduce the likelihood of faults
caused by poor or intermittent AC power.

Using Solid State
Relays with Light
Loads (Optional Set
Relays)
About Solid State
Relays With Light
Loads
There have been installations where solid state relays have been used
and failed to shut off a solenoid or relay when de-energized. The actual
problem comes from the internal snubbing network in parallel with the
Silicon Controlled Rectifier (SCR) which does the actual switching.
This network presents an impedance of 30K ohms, which means with
120 volts across, it will pass 4mA of AC current.
FIG. 8-2 SCR SWITCHING LOAD CIRCUIT
1. The SCR itself presents no leakage current. Some solid state relay
manufactures specify 20mA minimum load. This is based on the
presumption a relay or solenoid will drop out with only 4mA
through it, which is not always true. That may not be true. When
switching a light load with a solid state relay across the line, you
must look at the rated drop-out current of the load, and if it is less
than 4mA it may not turn off. The solution is to put a loading resistor in parallel with the light load, to be sure leakage current is sufficiently shunted away from the coil.
2. Assume a load like a relay with a coil of 15,000 ohms and of 5% of
nominal drop-out. When the solid state relay is off, there will still
be 1/3 of the line voltages across the relay, so it will not drop out.
For the relay to have 5% of the line across it, it and a parallel shunt
resistor must be 20 times less resistance than the 30K snubbing network, or 1.5K ohms. Use less than a 1.67K ohm parallel resistor
and now total load is below 1.5K ohm or 80mA.
