Fairbanks Scales Inc., Overland Park, Kansas, has released the FB1200 industrial scale instrument, designed for basic applications using analog bench scales, floor scales, tank assemblies or livestock scales.

Fairbanks Scales says the FB1200 is a flexible, economical solution for basic industrial weighing applications and features digital inputs and outputs that simplify its integration with other aspects of an operation.


The simple, seven-key interface has oversized buttons for Power, Units, Zero, B/G Net, Tare and Print and a single function key to access the more advanced features of the instrument. In addition, while many industrial applications do not require legal-for-trade status from their weighing equipment, the FB1200 is approved for 10,000 divisions by NTEP and Measurement Canada (MC). This allows the FB1200 to provide legal-for-trade weights when required.

In addition to simple weighing operations, the FB1200 has feature sets to address the following types of operation, including accumulating gross weight, net weight and piece count values over repeated weighments and three-zone checkweighing to confirm a weight is within an acceptable range.

Fairbanks says the FB1200 expands its ability to address customer needs by including digital inputs and outputs and multiple weighing intervals while significantly decreasing the time needed to install and service industrial instruments.
