Technique to Obtain Accurate Count of Sheets

       Disclosed is a device that provides accurate and reliable
sheet counting and discrimination in a container.

      In Fig. 1, an optical sensor looks in the container, where
sheets are deposited.  The sensor outputs a signal to the logic
circuit in Fig. 2.  The level of this signal will discriminate the
sheets made by different materials and increment a counter for each
respective state.
