The Sensing Module is perfect for integration into a smart bin or a reverse vending machine, easily adding infrared sensing capabilities. It offers the same sensing technology and state-of-the-art AI algorithms as our PlasTell and FabriTell devices, but in a compact, integration-ready footprint.
Operating principle: reflectance or transmittance NIR spectroscopy (configuration-dependent), 1550-1950 nm
Algorithms & library: state-of-the-art machine learning / AI algorithms included, no additional setup or fees
Identification speed: < 1 s
Materials identified: same as FabriTell / PlasTell devices (configuration dependent)
Power consumption: 2W (small lamp), 7W (medium lamp), 30W (large lamp). The power is supplied by the on-board USB-C connector, 5.1V.
Wireless Connectivity: Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz) for updates & connection to our cloud, Bluetooth 4.0 for connecting to our app
Communication interfaces: serial over USB, UART/serial (3.3V signals), RS485, CAN bus, Modbus (over RS485) - our open-source communication library is included!
The price is for the Sensing module (shiny metal box in the pictures above) + a light source of your choice + spectra library & algorithms of your choice + a development board + a power supply.
The (3D printed) frames for the sensing modules are not included but please do let us know if you would like them - we could either add them to the shipment or share the .stl file for 3D printing.
This is an advanced product for OEM integrators - unlike our PlasTell and FabriTell devices, its setup and use will require technical and programming skills. Unless you need a module to integrate into your product or system, please do buy our PlasTell or FabriTell devices instead.
