Erhardt + Leimer Offers ELCOUNT Pick- And Course-counter

Germany-based Erhardt + Leimer GmbH
reports its newly developed ELCOUNT automatic pick- and course-counter provides contact-free,
reliable pick and course density control owing to a newly designed charged-couple device (CCD)
matrix camera with built-in circular illumination, and closed loop control owing to a newly
designed feed-forward/feed-back control algorithm.

According to the company, the new device offers single-sided detection and the largest
detection area possible, does not require a speed reference for measurement, can provide static
measurement and instant calculation, and adjusts automatically for brightness. The system functions
in conjunction with the Windows® XP operating system, and offers an easy-to-use operator interface
and Ethernet communication between the camera and the computer. The company also offers its
customers a global technical support network.
