Control Optimization by Scanner Technology
An innovative way to count the number of (mixed weight) mail pieces in a postal tray without extraction of the mail from the tray. Control the output of your mail room, or the receipt of mail pieces.
Advantage of a topological analysis laser
Ease of use (no requirement to set parameters for the typology of the folds to be counted). Insensitive to the colours of the objects to be measured. No deterioration as a result of extraneous luminosity (e.g. sun, shade, artificial light, fluorescent tubes,...). Counts reflective materials such as shrink-wrap (vs. camera based systems which cannot measure reflective surfaces). Safe (UL, CE) and approved by a major postal operator.
Performance & accuracy
The EC-500 meets required accuracy thresholds without the need to remove envelopes from trays or to control ambient lighting. Industry standard readers reading the barcode on each tray combine with a scale determine tray weight. The tray is conveyed forward and back on a short belt under a laser “eye” in order to arrive at a correct count of envelopes. Also works with bundles or incomplete trays. Envelopes should be of same height in tray. Mixed mail: variation in thickness of envelopes can apply up to a factor of 1:6.
