The attendant-free FB2550 Driver Assist Terminal is designed to speed the vehicle-weighing process and reduce associated operating costs. It allows terminal interaction without leaving the vehicle, eliminating safety concerns and liability that can occur when drivers walk across scale platforms and traffic lanes. A color touch screen, large text and numeric keys, as well as simple-to-understand prompts facilitate and speed operation. The FB2550 also features built in Ethernet connectivity that easily interfaces scale transaction data with a company’s existing computer network.
The time reduction from the Driver Assist Terminal allows for an increase in scale throughput and overall efficiency. It also allows for 24-hour operation without additional labor costs. Innovative terminals and systems improve weighing operations due to their simplicity and seamless acquisition and integration of weight data, company engineers contend. — Fairbanks Scales, Kansas City, Mo., 800/451-4107; www.fairbanks.com.
