Fairbanks Scales announced the release of the latest generation of the FB6000 weighing instrument, featuring a new web interface that enables rapid calibration and custom ticket formatting.
“The latest generation of the FB6000 weighing instrument is the most functional and affordable instrument in its class, and is compatible with both analog and digital weighing technology,” the company said. “The FB6000 is ideal for all mid-range single truck scale applications including In/Out, Gross/Tare/Net, or Basic (one button) In/Out weighing.”
In this recent update, front panel programming has been replaced by a web interface, reducing time spent on calibration and custom ticket formatting to mere minutes, according to the company. The interface automatically reformats for viewing compatibility across most mobile phones, tablets, laptops and desktop devices, the company said, adding that it can also be used to run reports and enter vehicle data.
“In a typical truck scale environment where the instrument and scale are physically separated, the FB6000 web interface now enables end users to calibrate the scale system from a laptop or tablet on the same network,” according to Fairbanks. “This saves time by eliminating the need to walk back and forth between the instrument and scale, during the calibration process.”
In addition, the FB6000 features automatic or manual incorporation of traffic lights, and continuous Ethernet output is standard. The instrument features simple Remote Display connectivity using the dedicated, optically isolated 20mA output or any of three RS232C ports.
