Autonomous fill level monitor. A stand-alone solution to monitor fill level of bottles, the new Checkmat 753 HF uses high-frequency measurements to accurately detect whether a bottles fill level is too high or too low. In contrast to X-ray or gamma-ray detection, the high-frequency process requires neither special permits nor elaborate safety precautions. The unit inspects up to 72,000 bottles per hour with maximised accuracy, and it is not affected by the material, shape or colour of the bottles. Even paper or plastic labels do not affect the measurements.
The unit can be used with all Krones fillers or labellers, and also with other makes. Its compact size means that only 150 mm of conveyor length in the direction of bottle travel is required for measuring the fill level. Thanks to a non-contact measuring process, there is no wear and tear and practically no maintenance is required. The unit is designed for user-friendly operator control via a touch-screen on the xPanel terminal, where all relevant statistical production data are also displayed as required. A teaching mode makes it easy to set up for new bottle types. Any desired number of bottle variants can be stored on the internal flash card. Software updates can be simply loaded via a USB interface.
