German term or phrase: Höhenfinder and Höhensprünge
The text revolves around the "Höhenfinder" - a device which counts the number of objects in a pile by identifying height using light sensors. "Height finder" is literal but doesn't seem tidy or professional enough. "Höhensprünge" are identified by the machine when counting the objects.

height meter, height differences


Explanation:
height meter - This is a more generic term, like the German.

height differences - This might be used if looking at differences between piles. Increment might be used if it refers to the (standard) height of an object in the pile.
