|#186775 - Language Barrier|
Responding to: Erik Malund's previous message
Erik Malund said:
Objects are inserted manually, one at the time by free fall through tube by gravity.
Tube is a part of some kind of garbage collecting machine so objects can be made of all kinds of material and their mixtures.
what about a hinged spring loaded lid (such a lid opens when an object is placed on it) and connecting a detector (e.g. hall-effect) to it.
Tube can hold just one object at the time.
I guess there is a language problem here. If the tube can hold just one item, the count is always ONE.
I ask again "counting objects present in the tube" or "counting objects being added to the tube"
I used wrong terms inserted in tube instead of passing through tube.
It seems to me that solution with hinged loaded lid can be simple and cheap.
