VistaSort IR

 Application

The VistaSort will remove foreign material (sticks, debris, stones), color defects (caused by disease, immaturity or moisture damage), splits, and undecorticated seed in Pulse Crops such as Lentils, Beans and Peas.
In Cereal Grains, we can remove all types of contaminants (sticks, hulls, stones), ergot, foreign material (i.e. wild oats), discoloured seeds, as well as immature and diseased kernels.

COMPONENTS

  • ejectors2

    EJECTORS

    Imported from Italy. The ejectors contain a high-frequency electromagnetic solenoid valve that operates with a 10 billion millisecond precision and a consistency of near-zero error to ensure high accuracy.

     
  • dsp-Lewis M. Carter Canada

    DSP + FPGA

    Our control chip is made in the USA. The combination of DSP and FPGA produces powerful computing capabilities. It has extremely fast data collection and can process large amounts of information and perform various operations simultaneously.

     
  • ccd_cameras-Lewis M. Carter Canada

    CCD CAMERAS

    A Japanese high-end 2048 pixel CCD chip camera can identify spots as small as 0.04mm. When coupled with intelligent algorithms, the optical design provides a more accurate color selection.

     
  • inteligent_img-Lewis M. Carter Canada

    OPTICAL SYSTEM

    We have developed a complex algorithm so that even the smallest of impurities can be detected.

     
  • optical_system-Lewis M. Carter Canada

    OPTICAL SYSTEM

    Compact system design, a precise calibration system, combined with an intuitive machine interface makes our machine operator friendly.

     
  • 300mm-Lewis M. Carter Canada

    300MM WIDE CHUTE

    Our 300mm wide chute is built with a special anodizing process and was designed to meet specifications required for many applications around the world.

TECHNOLOGY

sorting-1

Research and development on the LED lighting systems with the world's top lighting manufacturers has taken color sorting to new levels. The advancement of a more optimized optical system integrated with the calibration systems in German professional camera applications, has allowed our equipment to achieve the highest signal/noise ratio and vastly improve the stability of color sorting.
The human interface of our machines is very easy to operate, enabling operators of all experience levels to test and use the color sorter.
Multilingual support provides all of our customers with improved support.
Our optimized processing method provides superior color selection and ensures that our products meet the most stringent industry requirements.
