Key Technology enhanced its FMAlert software for VERYX digital sorters. FMAlert captures and saves digital images of foreign material (FM) contaminants and can be programmed to immediately alert operators and signal a downstream device during critical FM events. Now, the next-generation FMAlert annotates each image to pinpoint the FM object detected. Coupled with VERYX’s advanced detection capabilities, FMAlert helps processors control FM, speed response to FM events, recognize trends and improve documentation to protect food safety. FMAlert also captures and saves time-stamped digital images of critical FM present in the product stream, and can be programmed to identify specific, user-defined FM types and trigger a smart alarm to alert the operator or team when critical FM is found. “Marks” are digitally placed on the images to point out each critical FM contaminant, and the images are saved on the VERYX PC to be downloaded at the sorter via a USB drive or accessed remotely.
