Hi Aaron, how does the counter mecanism on the ball counting sleeves work? do you have a video on that? What's the actual (vs theoretical) maximum number of sleeves for that system? Thanks Pablo
There are a variety of counters mechanisms available. Options include mechanical, electrical, or a combination of these two. I don't have any videos that go into that level of detail, because most the mechanisms are proprietary to the service providers that offer these products. I can put you in touch with some of those providers though.
All of these systems offer a virtually unlimited number of sleeves. The counter mechanisms break away from the ball and ball seat increments, which is the current limitation. Most companies have at least a 100-stage system ready to go, but can go much higher with the stage count with minor modifications.
