Purpose-Built Brackets for Egg Counters 

Sep 12, 2022

By Tim Gess

In last month’s newsletter, PMSI shared the work we did to identify factors impacting Egg Count Accuracy and discussed steps that farms can take to improve the overall accuracy of their counts. In this month’s newsletter, we’re talking about egg counter brackets and how using the right bracket can dramatically improve both the consistency and accuracy of your egg counts.

Details Matter

You’re probably not surprised to know that egg flow systems rely heavily on consistent and  accurate egg count data to function properly. That’s why PMSI uses I R E and I R ETN egg counters  exclusively i n all our Responsive Egg Flow system integrations. What you might find surprising,  however, is just how significantly egg counter performance can be impacted by improperly sized  or poorly designed mounting brackets. That’s why when it comes to maximizing the performance  of your egg flow system, PMSI knows that even the smallest details matter.


Introducing Purpose-Built Mounting Brackets from PMSI. Over the past 12 months, PMSI has  invested heavily in the design and manufacture of our proprietary mounting brackets. Our Purpose-Built brackets provide a superior mounting platform with greater stability than traditional one-size-fits-all style brackets. Plus, PMSI Purpose-Built mounting brackets are specifically designed to withstand the harsh conditions found in today’s cage free environments.

System Specific

When we say Purpose-Built, we also mean system specific. PMSI currently offers Purpose-Built brackets for a variety of cage and cage free systems. Here are just a few of the systems we currently support:

Right Height. Right Angle.

With PMSI’s Purpose-Built mounting brackets, we’ve thought of everything. No more struggling to find the right height or angle for optimal egg counter performance. Our brackets are designed for straight forward installation of our IRE or IRETN series counters; ensuring counters are mounted at just the right height and angle. With built-in height and angle mounting tabs, PMSI’s Purpose-Built brackets are engineered to ensure  consistent mounting every time.

Tip Up Design

When it comes to cleaning and maintaining egg counter  lenses, we’ve thought of that, too. PMSI”s Purpose-Built brackets are engineered with an easy access, tip up feature that makes lenses accessible for easy cleaning.
Simply tip our Purpose-Built bracket up to expose egg counter  lenses for easy cleaning. Once debris and dust has been wiped away, simply rotate brackets back to their original position. Purpose-Built brackets come with built-in height and angle tabs to ensure egg counters are returned to their optimal working position each and every time – no tools or alignment devices required! The unique tip up design makes maintenance and replacement easier, too!
