The different modules within the Meggsius family can function independently of each other, but the Control & Count system, which delivers a constant egg flow into the egg room is ideally installed as a set. Meggsius Count is a camera system that counts the eggs just before the transfer to the central collection belt and works even in dark and dusty houses. The cameras also signal how many eggs are on the left and right sides of the conveyor. The counting is done visually with infrared light. Placing a camera on the system egg belt incl. smart/knowledge-based software prevents eggs from being counted twice or even three times before and after a standstill. Additionally, the system includes cameras at the transitions from one belt to the other. Smooth transitions are crucial for the quality of the egg and all risks that can negatively impact the quality of the egg or even worse losing the egg before it even reaches the end of the packing line. Potential issues with the transition point can come to light, via a fast and easy check using the Gregg Smart Eggs. These smart eggs measure the impact (G-force levels) an egg is faced with when moving across the different parts of machinery.
The second part, the Meggsius Control, includes software to optimize the egg supply via the different belts by automatically adjusting the speed of the belts, resulting in an efficient running egg packing operation. Hectic work environments with staff adjusting the speed of the belts or running into the house to see if there is an issue with a belt are a thing of the past With the Meggsius Control & Count the number of operators can be brought down to a minimum.
