container counter

More context would have been helpful. But I am reasonably confident that "container counter" is the term used.

Container counter for use in single-file conveyor lines.
The xxx of ultrasonic bcounting sensors maintains accuracy even in the presence of line stoppages and reversals as well as container agitation in front of the sensor. By eliminating miscounts and reducing downtime associated with setups and changeovers, the sensor accurately counts both separated and back-to-back containers at line speeds up to 2000 per minute. The sensor's output can be used with most counters or totalizers to keep count of the containers. If containers move past the sensor in a reverse direction, the sensor remembers not to recount these containers when they move past the sensor in the correct direction. …

Other optional features include ionized air rinsing, a digital container counter and supply hopper low-level detection and indication.
