Fairbanks Scales Inc., the oldest scale company in the U.S. and the world’s leader in weighing equipment, announces its new 2000 Series Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) Railroad Track, targeted to dramatically increase productivity and eliminate occupational safety hazards.

Each 2000 Series WIM Scale is shipped with a Fairbanks FB400 Instrument that meets all NTEP and AAR requirements. The FB400 is easy to operate and continuously reports through a userfriendly PC web interface that features customizable user preferences. Scale data integration into most customer ERP systems is possible. Individual ERP compatibility is determined during the project’s discovery and quoting process.

The 2000 Series WIM Scale design has tremendous advantages for rail scale operators looking to safely save time and money. The above ground modular design allows for easy maintenance and accessibility. Weighing the cars in motion will save immense amounts of time vs. static weighing and improve your processing capabilities. Combining the proven reliability of a 2000 Series rail scale with the advanced weighing capabilities of the In-Motion system provide a superior weighing experience.

Fairbanks’ heavy-duty rail scale rocker column load cells feature a true hermetic seal at its cable entry point and is constructed of 100 percent stainless steel. The heart of the 2000 Series WIM Railroad Track Scale, this robust, fully electronic load cell has delivered reliable, accurate weighments for decades in the most demanding rail applications. It features air-tight moisture protection, an industry leading IP69K enclosure rating, and Armour Guard stainless cable jacketing to protect its conductors.

Beyond new scale installations, Fairbanks can now also convert existing static scales into an InMotion system, utilizing existing equipment as much as possible to save time and money during installation. Our Fairbanks Sales team will review the existing site and customize a proposal for exactly what you need to get weighing quicker. To learn more about the new WIM scale, visit
