Smart metal scanner

EVK ABAS TL is an inductive metal scanner for use in sensor-based sorting machines for detection and sorting of metals. The sensor can be mounted under a conveyer belt and delivers spatially resolved information of conductive material in the material flow. The metal scanner produces binary information that drives a corresponding I/O module and subsequently ejection units. In combination with an EVK proprietary I/O system, EVK ABAS TL off ers a complete solution to machine builders for detection and sorting of metal particles.
