Counting sensor

Sci-Agra Inc. has developed a sensor with the ability to count in-process items in mass on a wide conveyor. According to the company, the sensors do not require parts or finished goods to be single rowed, separated, or touched to be sensed. Thus, the device can be used at any point on a production line where "real-time" production numbers are required.

According to the company, the sensors do not require parts or finished goods to be single rowed, separated, or touched to be sensed. Thus, the device can be used at any point on a production line where “real-time” production numbers are required. The sensors can “learn” up to 16 different shapes, allowing flexibility in product counting. www.sciagra.com Sci-Agra Inc.
