Fairbanks Scales announced that recent updates to the FB2550 Advanced Scale Instrument software provide users the ability to select and clear all incomplete transactions and detect when a load cell may be at fault on the scale.
"With these new features, the option for individual deletion of incomplete transactions is still present, giving end users greater flexibility overall,” according to the company. “In addition, if the scale in running in the Fairbanks Intalogix configuration, the enhanced email error notification system will detect the specific load cell at fault when issues arise and email this information to the end user.”
Other new features available in the software’s most recent update include the ability to print a load cell diagnostics report, and to update existing tare weights. The software revision also adds the Epson TM-U220 to the list of printers usable with the instruments and software, the company added.
“Additionally, the most recent revision to the FB2550 software allows for more flexible use of the traffic light in Summing Mode and a faster response from traffic lights when networked,” Fairbanks said. “The software update also enables increased diagnostics regarding load cell failure through email notification, thus simplifying maintenance. Finally, the newest version of the software delivers secure video capture when a blind counter is enabled, thus preventing operators from accidentally switching video capture off.”
The newest version of the software also enables access to the full service menu via the instrument’s web interface.
