The MD900 is an inductive metal detector for use in garbage sorting. It consists of a high-frequency field generator and a series of probes running transversely to the treadmill, which analyzes the product stream in a location-specific and location-resolved manner.
The data for the opening and closing of the valves, which are transmitted in real time via an SPI interface to the valve control in the blowout unit, are calculated.
Operation is via an Ethernet interface. All data for configuration during operation (operating mode, sorting program and other parameters) are transmitted via the Modbus / UDP protocol. For updates and error analysis, an independent TCP/IP interface is available. The sensor is connected via 2 connection cables to the blow-out unit.
