For all your seed counting requirements. For any grain sizes from 0.3 to 15mm.
The Contador 2 is a new instrument which is based on the practical experience with the renowned seed counter Contador.
The proven handling of the feed containers, the short feeding distance and the high counting precision are now complemented by a considerably higher counting speed.
With the traditional Contador it took approx. 90 s to count 1000 rapeseeds, with the Contador 2 this only takes 12 seconds.
Feed containers for small seeds (no. 1) or cereals (no. 2) allow a fast and flexible use for different seed types. This concept permits a fast change of samples without having to empty the counting channels.
How does it work?
The Contador 2 is a high quality instrument for all seed counting requirements. It has a high counting speed while still maintaining its counting accuracy. It is easy to use and is quiet. It is suitable for counting seed from 0.3 to 15mm.
Operation: The feed container is placed onto the Contador 2 and the sample is filled in. The instrument automatically recognizes the container and loads the optimal parameters. After defining the counting quantity, a magnet holds the feed container and a vibrating element causes it to oscillate. A specially developed algorithm ensures an optimal feed rate to guarantee a high counting speed and precision.Counting parameters and feed rate can also be set individually and saved in an individual configuration.The container is designed for a volume of 250 cm³. This corresponds for example to approx. 35,000 rapeseeds. The version for wheat (270 cm³) has a capacity of approx. 4,500 grains.

Contafill - Bag/Bottle filler
The Contador can also be fitted to a Contafill which will enable you to fill bags or bottles with a specific number of seeds in each. The Contafill fills all kinds of paper and plastic bags or plastic and glass bottles. It will check for missing bags or bottles and stops automatically so that no seed will be lost or spilt onto the bench. It also offers “continuous fill” by immediate removal of filled bags or automatic stop when all the bags on the carousel are full.
230 V / 50 Hz (24 V)
375 x 168 x 178 mm
# 1 - rapeseed: approx. 250 cm³
# 2 - cereals: approx. 270 cm³
Rape seed: 5000 seeds / 12 seconds / precision = 0.3%
Cereals: 2500 seeds / 24 seconds / precision = 0.3%
Bag Filling Speed
Rape seed: 3 bags / 1000 seeds / 20 seconds
Cereals: 2 bags / 1000 seeds / 30 seconds
The software SeedCount together with the filling station Contafill makes it possible to fill sample series. The number of bags as well as the number of grains can be defined in the mode count manually. The automatic mode uses XLS tables which make it possible to complete heterogeneous counting lists within a very short period of time. A label printer can print details like the test location and the number of grains. The operator only has to detach the bags, attach empty ones and apply the corresponding labels. The request to change the original sample is confirmed directly at the PC by the operator.
The Contador 2 is equipped with a serial RS232C and a Contafill interface to which the filling station can be connected.
