Popular Weighing Instruments Expand The Family

Fairbanks Scales introduces six new scale instruments based on the company’s FB6000 design. They are suitable for a variety of weighing applications, including floor, blender, tank, truck, hopper, and rail scales. The FB6005, FB6006 and FB6007 models are analog instruments and the FB6015, FB6016, and FB6017 instruments feature Intalogix Technology, which features load cell diagnostics and digital load cell communication technology.

 

The analog instruments take the analog signal from the load cells and convert it to a digital signal inside the instrument. In multiple load cell applications, all load cell adjustments are performed at the analog summing box(es) located at the scale platform. Final scale calibration is performed through the instrument. The analog versions use the same analog load cell interface card (ASC) as is used in existing FB6001, FB2558 and FB4000 instruments.

The FB6015, FB6016, and FB6017 instruments use Intalogix Technology for on-board diagnostics and digital load cell communication. An analog load cell signal is converted to a digital signal at the scale-mounted Smart Sectional Controllers (SSCs) and sent to the instrument by means of a digital communication. The new instruments use the standard SSCs, DSSCs and 2801 ISCs. All load cell trimming, sectional adjustments and final scale calibration are performed through the instrument.

 

In addition, the new models feature five modes of operation for relay control: setpoint, checkweigh, batch, auto batch, and auto repeat. The filling modes also have a full complement of settings beyond the typical target weight settings. Other features include a 16- segment red LED display and three enclosure options: stainless steel, NEMA 4X desk mount/wall mount enclosure; stainless steel and powder coat painted, NEMA 12 panel mount enclosure; and stainless steel and powder coat painted, NEMA 12 rack mount enclosure.
