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 measurement sensors for counting individual flat packs in long stacks.
Acuity’s sensor design is well-suited for measuring 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, and can easily integrate into OEM systems because of its simple power and data interface requirements.
AR200 Laser Measurement Sensor
The AR200 laser measurement sensor is a compact, durable, and reliable sensor built for many industries including the lumber, medical and high-tech industries. The AR200 sensor consists of five different models with ranges up to 100 mm (4 in) and accuracies down to 12-microns to satisfy precise measuring requirements.
