Kansas City, MO — Fairbanks Scales, Inc., the oldest scale company in the U.S. and the world’s leader in weighing equipment, announces it will be showcasing a wide range of superior truck scales at GEAPS Exchange 2014, which will be held February 23-25, 2014, at the Century Link Center, in Omaha, NE, Booth # 230D. On display will be innovative driver assist systems, including the Fairbanks Access Entry Station and the FB2550 Driver Assist Terminal, which are designed to speed the vehicle-weighing process and reduce associated operating costs. Fairbanks experts will demonstrate the exciting new technology and show visitors how the systems’ seamless acquisition and integration of weight data quickly pays for itself by automating vehicle weighing and identification.

Loaded with features, the Fairbanks Access Entry Station greets vehicles arriving at a site with a visible and audio prompt. The Entry Station quickly captures essential transaction information and sends it to the MatreX Processing System, a centralized processing and database system that processes transactions from any number of Access Entry Stations and relays real-time information to the driver. Data from multiple stations can be consolidated into customizable reports or exported to billing systems. The system includes a number of useful and user-friendly features. It can process credit card transactions while operating unattended and is easily integrated into existing management systems. The NTEP-certified terminals have a variety of available options, including long-range RFID readers to identify vehicles, security cameras, and much more.

Fairbanks’ new, state-of-the-art, attendant-free FB2550 Driver Assist Terminal allows the driver to interact with the terminal without ever leaving their vehicle, speeding the vehicle weighing process and reducing operating costs. The FB2550 also eliminates 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.

Founded in 1830, Fairbanks Scales has become the leader in the industrial weighing market by creating and manufacturing an unrivaled range of weighing equipment solutions. From bench, parcel, counting, floor, and truck scales to animal, railroad track, and a full range of specialty scales, Fairbanks Scales has a reputation for being the most agile and attentive industrial weighing partner in the business.
