Banner introduces D10 Expert Small Object Counter
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 assembliesassuring reliable, consistent small object counting with response times as fast as 150 microseconds.
Three major featuresDynamic Event Stretcher (DES), Automatic Compensation and Health Mode Alarmmake 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:
