Scale Accelerates Processing With Updated OS

Fairbanks Scales now offers an improved FB2550 instrument, the FB2558 that maintains its predecessor’s feature set while incorporating faster processing power, an updated operating system, and more memory. Up to five FB2558 instruments can be networked, sharing transactional data and traffic light controls from up to eight scale platforms. Transaction data is shared between each networked instrument.


The updated unit features an integrated web utility that gives users complete access to all menu options, including calibration, with a user friendly, web accessible interface. All configuration and calibration functions can be performed from a connected laptop or tablet using an Ethernet crossover cable or an existing network. When used with Fairbanks’ Remote Configuration Device (RCD), a technician can calibrate the FB2558 right from the scale platform, eliminating the need to travel between the platform and instrument to test and calibrate the scale system. Also standard is short or long platform Axlematic software, which enables users to secure axle weights along with total vehicle weight to ensure compliance with DOT requirements. And IP camera interface capabilities round out the new features. Checkout out the FB2550 datasheet for more details and specs.
