Press Release Summary:
Comprised of D10 Expert sensor paired with PFVCA fiber optic arrays, D10 Expert(TM) Small Object Counter creates 2D sensing field in which objects are detected upon breaking any point of array. Arrangement facilitates alignment and marginalizes object positioning control, ensuring consistent counting with response times as fast as 150 Âµsec. Features include Dynamic Event Stretcher, which prevents double-counting; selectable threshold with automatic compensation; and self-diagnostics.
Original Press Release:
Banner Fiber Optic Sensor Counts Small Objects-Such as Pills, Seeds, and Miniature Components-Quickly and Accurately
Minneapolis, MN-September 10, 2009- Banner Engineering Corp. introduces the D10 Expert(TM) Small Object Counter, delivering high-performance small object counting to solve a variety of applications, including:
The Small Object Counter consists of a specialized D10 Expert sensor paired with preconfigured PFVCA fiber optic arrays, creating a two-dimensional sensing field in which objects are readily detected upon breaking any point of the array. This arrangement makes alignment easier and object positioning control less critical than with traditional, single-point emitter and receiver fiber optic assemblies-assuring reliable, consistent small object counting with response times as fast as 150 microseconds.
Three major features-Dynamic Event Stretcher (DES), Automatic Compensation and Health Mode Alarm-make the Small Object Counter an ideal solution for challenging small object counting applications:
The standard PFCVA fiber assemblies recommended for use with the D10 Small Object Counter will solve many counting applications. The fibers can also be used as test platforms to learn about application requirements. If the preconfigured PFVCA fiber optic arrays do not solve a specific application, a custom fiber optic assembly can be requested by contacting a Banner application engineer.
Features. These features of the Small Object Counter make it particularly useful in the above applications:
