Press Release Summary:
With sensing zone length facilitating weighing, RailBoss™ eliminates guesswork of volumetric measuring and variable tare weights. Trains not being weighed can move across scale at normal line speed without affecting scale, and MS quick-disconnect cable connectors, which automatically release before damaging tension is reached, reduce maintenance/repairs. Installation –Â using existing ties and ballast, with rail joint bars connecting RailBoss sections to existing rail – takes <8 hr typ.
Original Press Release:
RailBoss(TM) Rail Scale is Enhanced to Improve Yard Efficiency and Savings
Rice Lake Weighing Systems enhances RailBoss to include a longer sensing zone, MS quick-disconnect cable connectors, and a quick and straightforward installation for almost any rail yard.
Rice Lake, Wis.—Rice Lake Weighing Systems is re-releasing the RailBoss rail scale with many added enhancements. An innovative sensing zone, MS quick-disconnect cable connectors and a streamlined installation bring added value to the already rugged and robust rail car weighing system.
Running balanced rail cars at or near capacity assures the greatest efficiency and profit. RailBoss eliminates the guesswork of volumetric measuring and variable tare weights. The new longer sensing zone eases rail car weighing, and trains not being weighed can move across the scale at normal line speed without affecting the scale.
RailBoss' MS quick-disconnect cable connectors reduce unexpected maintenance and repairs. Automatically releasing before damaging tension is reached, the cable connectors save valuable repair time and replacement costs. RailBoss cable connectors are also compatible with comparable models, easing electronics setup if replacing an existing rail scale with a RailBoss system.
Less than one-third the cost of other rail scales, RailBoss installs on existing ties and ballast, and rail joint bars connect RailBoss sections to existing rail. Typically, a RailBoss installation takes less than eight hours. For yards that need reliable, rail car weight verification, RailBoss is the answer.
