POSTAL AUTOMATION USING LASER MEASURING DEVICES
SHORT RANGE LASER SENSORS ARE USED FOR COUNTING LETTER PACKS
Industrial automation is widespread in the letter and parcel handling centers around the world. Sensors are commonly used to detect and measure pieces of mail at blistering speeds. Integrators of Postal Automation systems use AR200 laser sensors for counting individual flat packs in long stacks.
Acuity’s novel sensor design is well suited to measuring to paper and cardstock materials of different colors. As the stacks of envelopes pass beneath the laser measuring sensor, the laser spot traverses the height profile. Software algorithms count each piece of mail.
The AR200 has a robust design can easily integrate into OEM systems because of its simple power and data interface requirements.
