End Counting Sensor
achieve reliable, highly accurate counts
- Unique devices specially designed for reliable counting
- Unparalleled accuracy
- Unidirectional sensing
Sencon’s famous count accuracy is possible thanks to our own custom microchip design and advanced sensing technology. Conservative count accuracies of 30 per 1,000,000 are quoted, but actual accuracies achieved by users are often much higher.
By sensing the direction of end flow, ends that are pushed forward or surge back in the reverse direction are taken into account without affecting the overall count. Even stationary ends that shake and jiggle in front of the sensor will not create a miscount.
Counting can ends in ‘stick’ form is notoriously difficult and beyond the ability of standard inductive or optical sensors. The problem of nested ends, coupled with the shaking, jiggling and reversing that is inherent to conveyors can create serious counting errors—and an inaccurate count is often worse than no count at all. These problems are eliminated with Sencon’s 11-39x-66 series End Counting Sensors, which feature adjustable sensitivity with tell tale LEDs, providing the ability to optimize them to your particular end type.
