The batch counter is enabled from our menu system.
A box count is set between 0 and 9999.
A box pre-warn count is set between 0 and 999. This turns on an alarm (with adjustable volume & tone) to tell the operator the box is almost full.
The alarm comes when the box count reaches the total box count minus the pre-warn amount.
When the last good bottle is tested the alarm tone changes and a Yellow LED is turn on momentarily indicating this is the last bottle.
The basic batch count is required except that the bottle is now counted by a photocell placed at the end of the conveyor.
At the batch count, a pneumatic cylinder moves a flap mounted off the end of the conveyor over so that the next bottle goes into the next box.
This arrangement is used for accumulation into 2 boxes.
Bottles could also be diverted into boxes on an indexing conveyor, or in a pneumatic indexing rectangle.
We are prepared to look at these options.
The output from a leak detector can be collated in rows on a collation table with an infeed conveyor and row push off cylinder. This can be controlled from the leak detector processor or if desired a separate mini-plc.
