High-Speed Tablet Counting With DF-G2
In pharmaceutical packaging, products such as tablets, capsules and gel caps need to be accurately counted to achieve the proper number of tablets in each bottle.
Pharmaceutical and medical industries use a dispensing mechanism to ensure the tablets separate from one another and don’t fall into the bottle side-by-side or simultaneously. All of this is done at a very fast speed, creating the need for a high-speed, small-object counting sensor that can ensure tablets are accurately dispensed.
Banner’s DF-G2 small object detection fiber amplifier is ideal for small object detection and counting applications. The DF-G2 amplifier has a fast response speed and can detect extremely small sizes, such as 3 mm tablets or pills. When the tablets fall into bottles, it fires an output to the DF-G2 fiber amplifier, which keeps count of the tablets.
The DF-G2 can maintain accurate counts even in very dusty environments due to its automatic gain compensation. The amplifier can detect fast events with a faster response speed and has an optional totalizer feature. The totalizer can be set from 1 to 1,000 and set to reset once the count total is reached.
Banner’s DF-G2 Small Object Detection Fiber Amplifier offers various expert-style teaching and manual adjust sensitivity with a rocker switch. An easy to use interface allows for simple TEACH and SET methods with a single push of a button.
