• High-speed sortation control
• Small item sortation
• Tilt tray, pop-up and other sorters
• Complete scan, track, sort confirm,
report and statistics features
Accu-Sort® Systems has expanded its
suite of Flexible Automation Solution
Tools (FAST) with the introduction of
FAST Sort, a comprehensive solution for
automated sortation control, including
configurable software for I/O and device
controls, sortation tracking and acknowledgement
and performance diagnostics.
provides high-speed sortation control, including scan,
track, sort, confirm, report and statistics features.
It resides seamlessly on new or existing conveyor
systems, and software can be customized to meet specific
requirements. FAST Sort also integrates with Accu-Sort's
small-item sortation system, a fully automated, small-footprint
sorting machine for use in entertainment, pharmaceutical,
photo processing, printing/publishing and other industries.
supports up to 27 tachometers, 800 input devices,
800 output devices and multiple induct scanners and
controls all divert methods, including tilt tray,
shoe, pop-up, swing-arm, pusher and others. Alarm
thresholds for consecutive no-reads, no-match or induct
errors and advanced diagnostics are user-configurable.
can configure and support multiple sortation methods,
lane assignment logins, and lane divert methods. Specific
objects can be assigned to specific lanes and individual
full-lane quantities set. Full-lane thresholds can
be set by item count.
is easy to configure, running on Windows® NT/Windows®
2000 for seamless enterprise integration. Drag-and-drop
setup provides for intuitive I/O assignments, and
device group setup allows for quick configuration
of larger tracking areas that may contain many tracking
eye/divert blocks. Actual I/O control status is displayed
for each attached device, and all system I/O hardware
and communications devices are monitored. Simple-learn
mode speeds real-time tracking setup and confirmation.
also features an easy-to-use graphical interface.
The I/O interface is modeled after actual hardware,
providing graphical representation of I/O control
modules including active LEDs to display individual
bit status. Active I/O states are represented on screen
in real time with statistical analysis of successful
diverts, alarms, divert failures and other system
can provide dimensional measurements using Accu-Sort's
new AccuRanger range finder. Automated object measurement
is available as an option.
