VAKI introduces a new Fish Counter for bigger challengers’
The new VAKI Channel Counter is specially made to count effectively and accurately large amount of big fish (from 300g to 12kg). The capacity has never been greater. This is possible with the new development of the counters that are based on the same technology as VAKI has been using for more than 10 years.
Technology that we already master - New approach
The counting is based on automatic video analysis and technology VAKI has developed over the last 10 years in the fry and smolt counting. Now this technology has been adapted to the fish production.
The accuracy of the count is above 98%, and is being used to count both smolts at deliveries and larger fish when graded. The counting process is video recorded and saves images of every fish counted so the fish farmer can verify the numbers and get a thorough report on the whole counting process. The recording can be replayed frame by frame, and thereby confirmed.
How is it possible
The VAKI counters are revolutionary, based on a scanning camera and computer vision. The fish flow gently in water through the scanning area where the outlines are recorded. The fish are scattered over a large width, it is well separated and thus achieves clear and good pictures, which ensures high quality in the count.
Custom software is used to analyse and count each image. The main advantage of VAKI counters is accuracy, speed and verification of data. Stress free and fish in water at all times.
In addition to high accuracy and high capacity is one of the main advantages of the VAKI Channel counter that it is integrated onto the design that are already part of the sorting machine and thus requires no extra space.
