Object Detection Applications

In pharmaceutical bottling applications, it's necessary to quickly and accurately count small pills, tablets, and gelatin tablets to ensure that the bottles are filled to the correct level. Since the exact locations of the pills as they drop are unpredictable, a fiber optic array with precise thresholds paired with a sensor possessing the high-speed electronics required to make split-second decisions is the ideal solution.
Clear object detection causes issues for traditional photoelectric sensors because the emitting light from the sensor has difficulty reflecting off the clear surface of the object. Ultrasonic sensors eliminate this issue by emitting a wave of sound that can be reflected or interrupted by almost any material. Each passing clear bottle will interrupt the sound wave resulting in an output being produced.
