The product is moved to the Sensor Cabin to verify the quality through the Conveyor. The Dimension of the product is checked using the Sensor Interface. If the product has no accurate dimension the rejecter rejects the product to the Rejecter Bin. If the product has high quality the conveyor moves it to the Accepted Bin. The motor is used to move the Conveyor that carries the product.

Rohit Sharma. A low-cost IR diode array, working on a reflection light scanner principle, has been designed. Essentially arrays of several emitter-receiver pairs are mounted on different sides of the area of observation, enabling the estimation of the size of the object in different dimensions and its reflection coefficient.

The emitters are driven successively in time; hence no signal overlapping and cross-talk occur. The results show that from simple light intensity measurements, a variety of objects can be reliably recognized. As an example, the problem of determining the number of people getting into or out of a room is addressed.

Two arrays of 3 diode pairs each are mounted on both sides of a doorway. With the proposed sensor, people can be recognized easily and are well separable from other echoes motion of hands etc.

It did not take long to realize that one could provide far greater service to the customers if one could also control the manufacturing aspects of the conveyor equipment. Auto-motion understood the value of providing service in every faces from design and production to installation, training and ongoing factory trained technical support. Though it is suggested that ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians used conveyors in major construction projects and history of the modern conveyor dates back to the late 17th century.

These early conveyor systems were typically composed of a belt that travelled over a flat wooden bed. The belt was usually made from leather, canvas or rubber and was used for transporting large bulky items. Hymle Goddard of Logan Company patented the first roller conveyor in In , the first powered and free conveyors were introduced into the mass production of automobiles. The application of the conveyor branched out to coal mining in the s, where the technology underwent considerable changes.

Conveyor belts were designed made of layers of cotton and rubber coverings. During the manufacturing increase of World War II, manufacturers created synthetic materials to make belting because of the scarcity of natural components. Today's conveyor belting is made from an almost endless list of synthetic polymers and fabrics and can be tailored to any requirements. Possible uses of conveyors have broadened considerably since the early days and they are used in almost any industry where materials have to be handled, stored or dispensed.

The longest conveyor belt currently in use operates in the phosphate mines of the Western Sahara and is over 60 miles long. With the increasing demand in the market, many synthetic polymers and fabrics began to be used in the manufacture of conveyor belts. Today, cotton, canvas, EPDM, leather, neoprene, nylon, polyester, polyurethane, urethane, PVC, rubber, silicone and steel are commonly used in conveyor belts.

First, the main characteristics of the belt-conveyor design process are presented as they appear in the current literature. Furthermore, a proposed general knowledge-representation platform is described, and its ability to house the relevant conveyor design knowledge is also shown. The extended search technique of the design space is discussed, and an integrated example of a belt-conveyor design is presented, based on the proposed representation platform and the extended search technique.

Huang et al. Kinematics and dynamics of the robot are formulated using a parametric function, allowing the representation of the input torque and velocity constraints to be converted to those in terms of the path length. A modified algorithm for achieving the minimized traversal time is proposed by taking into account the path jerk limit. Lithium-ion battery sorting using the Diamond robot is taken as an example to demonstrate the applicability of this approach.

Dogan Ibrahim et al [3] aim to show the special features of the C language when programming microcontrollers. He says that the industry standard C51 optimizing C compiler is used throughout. This compiler has been developed by Keil Elektronik GmbH. Some of these compilers are freely available as shareware products and some can be obtained from the Internet with little cost.

These compilers can be used for learning the features of a specific product and in some cases small projects can be developed with such compilers. The C51 compiler has been developed for the family of microcontrollers. This is one of the most commonly used industry standard C compilers for the family, and can generate machine code for most of the pin and pin devices and its derivatives, including the following microcontrollers: Intel and others , 80C51, and 87C51 Atmel 89C51, 89C52, 89C55, 89S, and 89S Sahu, et al.

In this paper a comparative study between the APD and LDR for their sensitivity towards different colours also discussed. A cost effective as well as with reasonable accuracy and precision, a colour sensor is developed with a array of LDRs, where the biasing voltage is very less compared to APD based colour sensor.

This sensor is used in a micro-controller based object rejecter and successfully able to distinguish 8 colours. This can be enhanced to colours. This work is the first developmental stage of the robot, which will be used for alignment of the sample sensing laser of different colour in high-dose radiation environment.

Khojastehnazhand et al. Basically, two inspection stages of the system can be identified: external fruit inspection and internal fruit inspection. The former task is accomplished through processing of colour images, while internal inspection requires special sensors for moisture, sugar and acid contents.

In this paper, an efficient algorithm for grading lemon fruits is developed and implemented in visual basic environment. The system consists of two CCD cameras, two capture cards, an appropriate lighting system, a personal computer and other mechanical parts. The algorithm initially extracts the fruit from the background. The samples of different grades of lemon are situated in front of the cameras and are calibrated off-line.

Then information on the HSI colour values and estimated volumes of fruits are extracted and saved in a database. By comparing the information during sorting phase with the available information inside the database, the final grade of the passing fruits is determined.

Object rejecter receives the signal The rejecter hit the pieces out of conveyor belt The object counter counts the OK objects Fig. When the object passes through the sensing circuit it identifies the height of the object on the conveyor and sends signals to the micro-controller. This circuit demonstrates the principle and operation of a simple height sensor using LDR. When light of a particular color fall on LDR, its resistance decreases and an output voltage is produced.

This voltage is dependent on the intensity and wavelength of different color. A varying current in the first or primary winding creates a varying magnetic flux in the transformer's core and thus a varying magnetic field through the secondary winding. This varying magnetic field induces a varying electromotive force EMF or "voltage" in the secondary winding. This effect is called mutual induction.

These signals will control the arm and rejecter movement and will place the object picked from conveyor belt to three different places in order to segregate them. The switching circuit gives the option of manual operation of arm movement as well as rejecter operation.

The automation switch on the board will operate the system automatically. A rectifier is an electrical device that converts alternating current AC , which periodically reverses direction, to direct current DC , which is in only one direction, a process known as rectification. A full-wave rectifier is used, which converts the whole of the input waveform to one of constant polarity positive or negative at its output.

Full-wave rectification converts both polarities of the input waveform to DC direct current , and is more efficient. Therefore the AC voltage is now converted pulsating DC. While half-wave and full-wave rectification suffice to deliver a form of DC output, neither produces constant-voltage DC. In order to produce steady DC from a rectified AC supply, a smoothing circuit or filter is required.

This pulsation is removed by micro-farad capacitor filter circuit. Sizing of the capacitor represents a tradeoff. For a given load, a larger capacitor will reduce ripple but will cost more and will create higher peak currents in the transformer secondary and in the supply feeding it. In extreme cases where many rectifiers are loaded onto a power distribution circuit, it may prove difficult for the power distribution authority to maintain a correctly shaped sinusoidal voltage curve.

The output of the filter circuit is pure DC which is then supplied to controllers, motors and sensors. Relays are used where it is necessary to control a circuit by a low- power signal or where several circuits must be controlled by one signal.

The first relays were used in long distance telegraph circuits, repeating the signal coming in from one circuit and re-transmitting it to another. Relays were used extensively in telephone exchanges and early computers to perform logical operations.

A type of relay that can handle the high power required to directly control an electric motor is called a contractor. Relays with calibrated operating characteristics and sometimes multiple operating coils are used to protect electrical circuits from overload or faults.

In modern electric power systems these functions are performed by digital instruments still called "protective relays". In this system DC Motors for rejecter, turn table, object rejecter and conveyor belt are connected through the relay circuit.

There are IR sensors installed in order to accurately identify ground and drop places. An electric motor converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. DC motor design generates an oscillating current in a wound rotor, or armature, with a split ring commutator, and either a wound or permanent magnet stator.

A rotor consists of one or more coils of wire wound around a core on a shaft; an electrical power source is connected to the rotor coil through the commutator and its brushes, causing current to flow in it, producing electromagnetism. The DC motor receives its signal from the controller for performing sensing and pushing operations. The rejecter has been specially designed in order to push over height objects from the running conveyor and pushing them at programmed locations.

One or both of the pulleys are powered, moving the belt and the material on the belt forward. The powered pulley is called the drive pulley while the unpowered pulley is called the idler. There are two main industrial classes of belt conveyors; those in general material handling such as those moving boxes along inside a factory and bulk material handling such as those used to transport industrial and agricultural materials, such as grain, coal, ores, etc.

Due to the face-to-face mounting, the maximum range R max can be reduced to almost the half of typical door widths what is still challenging for the detection of some materials and dark colors.

A high transmitter power is one of the key elements. Pulsed emitter diodes sfh u diodes With Integrated preamplifier and a maximum sensitivity at Approx. The emitters are driven at temporally successive instances, hence overlapping and mutual influence of the echo signals is excluded.
