Fairbanks Scales Inc. announces its new FB4000 desktop scale instrument is available in a NEMA 12 desktop enclosure and a NEMA4X stainless steel wash down enclosure.
At the heart of the FB4000 is a single board computer (SBC) running a Windows operating system. This adds flexibility for adding accessories and peripheral devices that can be easily connected to the FB4000. Featuring a wide variety of output and interface ports, the SBC can connect to Ethernet, RS-232, USB 2.0, and HDMI ports, the company says.
The 10.4-in. graphics display on the FB4000 enables extremely easy to use scale operation. The integrated touch screen makes daily operation very easy and fast. The FB4000 can operate up to eight scales, managed in groups of four. Ethernet connectivity makes connecting a scale instrument to customers’ existing Ethernet networks easier than ever. An optional wireless Ethernet accessory offers simple plug and play configuration to the customer’s existing wireless Ethernet network. Directly interface up to two IP cameras to the FB4000 applications and capture, store and print on-screen images, the company adds.
Available accessories for the FB4000 include Intalogix or analog scale Interfaces, a relay interface card, PLC interfaces, and a serial expansion card. Also available are passive and active 4-20 mA cards and an accessory expansion card, the company says.
