Counting of Objects in Automatic Deposit Return Machines with Ultrasonic Distance Sensor

In deposit return machines, a check must be carried out to determine how many bottles, cans and containers have been inserted in order to control the capacity of the system. For this purpose, an ultrasonic distance sensor is installed above the belt, which detects in reflex mode the objects made of glass, aluminum or PET regardless of their shape, color, position, surface and size. The background is completely hidden from view. Thanks to the wide sonic cone, moving and jumping objects are also reliably detected with the dirt-resistant sensors.

Distance Sensors

Distance sensors are suitable for the detection, differentiation and measurement of objects by means of ultrasound. Different operating modes, such as synchronous, multiplex or through beam mode, can be set via the display or centrally via IO-Link, and different output variants and designs enable a wide range of possible applications.
