unique designs, specially developed for canmaking

Counting cans is beyond the ability of standard inductive or optical sensors. The round shape of the product, plus the jiggling and reversing of cans that occurs on the line leads to major counting errors - and an inaccurate count may be worse than no count at all. All these problems are eliminated with Sencon’s can count sensors, which are specially developed to achieve highly accurate and reliable counts on canmaking lines.

Sencon can count sensors allow precise monitoring of production and/or spoilage data with 100% confidence

Unparalleled Accuracy

Custom microchip design gives count accuracies of 30 per 1,000,000 or better.

Unidirectional Sensing

Smart detection of the direction of flow means that cans are never counted twice even when they bounce, travel backwards, or shake in front of the sensor.

Continuous Reliability

True ‘fit and forget’ devices with no need for adjustment or maintenance. Dual head models also eliminate installation problems associated with achieving the correct sensing distance when cans are loosely contained in trackwork.

Divided Output Option

Built-in circuitry allows the option to give a divided output with an almost even mark space ratio. This provides a near perfect square wave for interfacing to displays and other equipment.

Special Counting Applications

End counting sensors capable of counting in ‘stick form’

Counting sensors for small diameter or low profile cans, and for rolled sheet stock are also available.
