Pill Inspection & Counter

Taymer’ s Table Top Pill Counter, PL500, is a camera-based solution for pill count verification. This system can automatically and instantaneously verify the number of pills poured onto the tray.
Save operator time and possible miscounts by using our PL500. Our pill counter equipment uses a high-speed camera to capture high resolution images to distinguish pill shape, size and count. The images are enhanced, magnified and displayed on the console for easy operator verification and interaction.
Taymer’ s PL500 includes automatic pill break detection. This feature analyzes the shape of the pills on the tray and notifies the operator with an alarm if there are shapes that do not match the template in use. Operators can effortlessly set the template by selecting one of many customisable recipes for different products with various shapes and sizes.
The PL500 clean room compliant stainless steel, camera-based design is made to have the minimum contact with your product and optimize pill counts and pill break detection. Additionally, the table top design makes our equipment portable and easy to include in your production process.
