Title (EN) SAMPLE CUP FEEDING SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME D’ALIMENTATION DE CUVE D’ÉCHANTILLON
Abstract:
(EN) A feeding system (2) for feeding disc-shaped objects such as sample cups (4) to an analyzer. The system (2) includes as infeed trade (22) angled downward from horizontal and the outfeed track (24) angled downward, plus a reject chute. The disc feeding system (2.) uses two RFID readers/writers, one (32) a standalone desktop and a second ( 190) proximate the sample bay of the analyzer for more comprehensive track-and-trace capability. The information read from the cup (4) tag as it is scanned is also stored with the resultant spectra so that predictive processing is applied properly and without error. For post scan (after the sample scan is completed) the scan information itself may be written directly to the sample cup RFID tag including, reflection/transmission, characteristics, constituent results etc.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système d’alimentation (2) pour alimenter des objets en forme de disque tels que des cuves d’échantillon (4) dans un analyseur. Le système (2) comprend une piste d’alimentation (22) coudée vers le bas depuis l’horizontale et une piste d’évacuation (24) coudée vers le bas, ainsi qu’une goulotte de rejet. Le système d’alimentation de disque (2) utilise deux dispositifs de lecture/écriture RFID, un premier (32) ordinateur de bureau autonome et un deuxième (190) à proximité de la baie d’échantillon de l’analyseur pour une capacité de suivi et de traçage plus complète. Les informations lues à partir de l’étiquette de cuve (4) lorsque celle-ci est balayée sont également stockées avec les spectres résultants de sorte qu’un traitement prédictif soit appliqué correctement et sans erreur. Pour le post-balayage (une fois que le balayage d’échantillon est terminé), les informations de balayage elles-mêmes peuvent être écrites directement sur l’étiquette RFID de cuve d’échantillon comprenant, la réflexion/transmission, des caractéristiques, des résultats de constituants, etc.
