The fish are counted when sliding through the pipeline, using infra-red light beams. A robust technology for harsh environment.
An industrial PC can be used to connect up to 4 PLC scanners. The advantages of the PC interface as compared to the normal display unit are numerous.
A count report is produced automatically after each count.
Each count report includes the total number of fish counted, total counting time, average counting speed (fish/min).
The thru put graph can be used to identify when peaks /maximum throughput in fish/min, and where (if any) overloads occurred.
VAKI MICRO & MACRO COUNTERS
The VAKI Macro and Micro counters are utilized when fish are being delivering from hatcheries, or for precise stock control operations when splitting, moving, or grading are being conducted. These counters can be utilized in many applications including wellboats, helicopters and transport trucks. Additionally, commercial aquaculture operators can use the VAKI Macro and Micro Counters to provide useful stock information during the growing cycle.
The Macro has a capacity of 200,000 smolts or 1 million 1g fry per hour and has a 100 cm wide counting area. With a range from 0.1g – 400g the Macro is ideal suited for accurate and fast delivery of fry and smolts. The Macro can be delivered both as single or 4 channel.
The Micro is exceptionally good for hatcheries and counting small fish between 0.1g – 200g. The counting area is 50 cm wide with a capacity of 500,000 1 g fish per hour. The Micro is ideal for the internal handling of smaller fish or delivering fry. The Micro can be delivered both as single or 3 channel.
