Kansas City, Missouri-based Fairbanks Scales Inc. says it will showcase its industrial scales at WasteExpo 2018, April 24-26, 2018, in Las Vegas at Booth No. 1028 in the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The company’s technology that will be displayed includes the Talon HVX heavy-duty truck scale, equipped with the Intalogix Lightning/Power Surge Protection system; the HVX Cut-a-way Field Pour; the Fairbanks Access Solutions (FBAS) Entry Station; and the 1605RF remote display.

Talon HVX (highway vehicle extreme) scales are built to federal bridge standards, with strong modules boasting the lowest deflection in the industry, according to the manufacturer. Load cells are provided with armored stainless steel cabling for durability and are hermetically sealed for moisture protection. They include a 25-year warranty. Talon scales are equipped with the proprietary Intalogix lightning protection system. Designed and developed by Fairbanks, this technology has what the manufacturer says is a true digital signal, up to 1 million times stronger than a conventional analog signal, to protect the scale from harmful surges or electrical spikes.

The Fairbanks Access Solutions (FBAS) Entry Station greets vehicles with a visible and audio prompt, quickly capturing essential transaction information and sending it to the MatreX Processing System, which relays real-time information to the driver, the company says.

The 1605RF Remote Display, which has a National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) 3-rated enclosure for outdoor use and a wireless data interface that eliminates the need for cabling between the scale instrument and the remote display.

The FB2550 instrument to be highlighted includes even more features, functionality and connectivity for today’s truck weighing applications, Fairbanks says. Standard features include onscreen IP (internet protocol) camera interface, full-color touch-screen display, Ethernet connectivity and transaction reports via email.
