Design and Implementation of Wireless Batch Counting Device for Brewery

ABSTRACT

This project deals with the design and implementation of a Radiofrequency RF-based wireless batch counting device for a brewery capable of counting the bottled drinks /product in a conveyor and displays the value numerically and wireless to its receiver installed about 100meters away. It is realized in top-down methodology using passive and active components available in the local market. This electronic system is designed in two functional units, the transmitter, and the receiver and they communicate by the principle of electrical resonance using Rf transmission wave band. The bottles are sensed using an Opto-couple, transmitted to the receiver using the Rf module, and displayed using a 2-digit seven-segment display. The system is packaged in a portable plastics casing, the result being an Rf-based wireless batch counting device for the brewery. It is not microprogram control and displays from 00-99 (one hundred counts).

CHAPTER ONE

1.1. Background of the Study

Owing to the high rate of industrial espionage and theft, industrial security techniques need to be improved to arrest/combat pilfering in industries. This project work tries to bring in an improved security measure that can be used to check to pilfer in the Brewery industry. Pilfering bottled drinks is a common theft in Breweries. And this act is perpetrated in the conveyor before a standalone counting device takes account of it. This has a tremendous effect on the stature of the fire – if it is not properly checked, could lead to liquidation and bankruptcy of the firm.

Conventionally, there is a batch counting device that counts the bottled drinks and displays the values numerically at the same spot carrier criminals who pilfer the products divert it before the counter. This chronology in social vices in the brewery industry has motivated me to embark on a project that is capable of counting/the bottled drinks incapable of counting/bottled drinks in the conveyor and displaying the value numerically and wirelessly (using Rf transmission waveband) to its receiver installed about 100m away. This device will count the product before it gets to the standalone version. This technique will help to check to pilfer and bring industrial espionage to halt.

1.2. Problem Statement

Brewery industries all over the world face the problem of pilfering of the products by the workers most frequently in the conveyer. This menace gave way to the development of a stand-alone batch counting device which is usually installed in the conveyors to record the total number of bottled products. This technique is facing serious threat since the bad eggs pilfer/divert the products before it gets to the counter.

Owing to the challenges mentioned above, there is a need to develop a system which will be installed at the entry point of the conveyors to count the products without the consent of the workers and display the value to a receivers unit installed in the manager office using Radio-frequency technology.

1.3. Aims and Objectives

This project aims to design and implement a Radio frequency-based wireless batch counter capable of counting bottled drinks/products and displaying them at a remote location.

1. To develop a system that can communicate using Radiofrequency technology.

2. To develop an optocoupler module that can detect opaque objects like bottles using a laser diode and visible light

3. To develop a 2-digit decimal counting unit that can count from 00-99.

4. To develop a system
