Pulse Rate Counter
Ideal for monitoring belt speed, production line or any device where speed is a concern.
A standard four-digit counter that detects input impulses for rate per second, minute, hour or days. Ideal to monitor line speed! Six to twelve digits available.
The unit has the option of refreshing every second, 10 seconds or 60 seconds. Customer-defined using dip-switches on the back of the unit.
A customer-supplied contact closure (5 to 24VDC) is required to trigger the input.
Typical Customer-Supplied Encoder Specifications:
A standard rate counter model receives a customer supplied input (standard 5 to 24VDC pulse) over a selected period of time and displays the accumulated count.
- The contact closure must be a PNP output with a maximum of 100 pulses per second.
- The recommended circumference is 12". Faster applications will require an off-the-shelf frequency counter mounted inside the display cabinet at an additional cost.
For instance, the unit will count the input pulses for one minute and display that accumulated count for one minute, refreshing every minute.
