Title (EN) SERVING SYSTEM AND SENSOR DEVICE FOR PICK-AND-MIX SALES
(FR) SYSTÈME DE SERVICE ET DISPOSITIF CAPTEUR DE VENTES D'ASSORTIMENT
Abstract:
(EN) A sensor device (8, 15, 20) for monitoring the volume of granular food or candy contained in a pick-and-mix container (2), wherein the sensor device (8, 15, 20) comprises at least one pair of electrodes (10, 11), a capacitance meter (12) and a controller (13). The capacitance meter (12) is connected to the at least one pair (9, 16) of electrodes (10, 11, 17, 18) and operable to measure the capacitance over the at least one pair (9, 16) of electrodes (10, 11, 17, 18) to produce an output indicative of the capacitance through the container (2). The controller (13) is operable to determine and report a content level of the container (2) based on at least the output of the capacitance meter (12) and calibration data related to the type of container and/or to the type of content, and/or operable to monitor the output of the capacitance meter (12) to determine a state of low content level based on at least the output of the capacitance meter (12) and calibration data related to the type of container and/or to the type of content, and to emit an alert signal upon determination of said state of low content level.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif capteur (8, 15, 20) destiné à surveiller le volume d'aliments granulaires ou de bonbons contenus dans un récipient d'assortiment (2), le dispositif capteur (8, 15, 20) comprenant au moins une paire d'électrodes (10, 11), un capacimètre (12) et un dispositif de commande (13). Le capacimètre (12) est connecté à ladite paire (9, 16) d'électrodes (10, 11, 17, 18) et peut servir à mesurer la capacité sur ladite paire (9, 16) d'électrodes (10, 11, 17, 18) en vue de produire une sortie indiquant la capacité à travers le récipient (2). Le dispositif de commande (13) peut servir à déterminer et à rapporter un niveau de contenu du récipient (2) sur la base d'au moins la sortie du capacimètre (12) et de données d'étalonnage associées au type de récipient et/ou au type de contenu, et/ou peut servir à surveiller la sortie du capacimètre (12) pour déterminer un état de faible niveau de contenu au moins sur la base de la sortie du capacimètre (12) et des données d'étalonnage associées au type de récipient et/ou au type de contenu, et à émettre un signal d'alerte lors de la détermination dudit état de faible niveau de contenu.
