AUTOMATIC COUNTER OF CIGARETTE PACKS FOR RETAIL CIGARETTE MERCHANDISERS

Publication No.: WO2020157701A1 06/08/2020

Applicant:

ELSAMADONI TAMER [EG]

Absstract of: WO2020157701A1

Many retailers require precise quantitative tracking of cigarette-packs stacked on their cigarette-merchandisers for sales analysis, theft control, and real-time inventory updates;however, counting cigarette-packs manually is very laborious and practically impossible to do in real-time. The present invention solves this problem by accessorizing ordinary commercial cigarette-merchandisers with an electro-mechanical system whereby all cigarette-packs (7) loaded on the cigarette-merchandiser are counted in a fully automated manner wherein the numbers of cigarette-packs (7) on the cigarette- merchandiser are instantaneously displayed on a screen (12) or sent wirelessly to another machine. The system architecture includes a processor unit harvesting data from an array of distance sensors (16) which, in conjunction with a plurality of mechanical parts, track the relative positions of the last pack (7) in each pack-column on the merchandiser whereupon the processor converts the data to column-lengths which, by instantaneous cross comparison with pre-programmed tables of standard cigarette-pack thicknesses, is converted to cigarette-pack enumerations.
