Counters \ Tachometers
A Counter is a device that counts the number of objects or the number of operations. It is called a Counter because it counts the number of ON/OFF signals input from an input device, such as a switch or sensor.
It is fairly simple for people to count ten or twenty objects, but larger numbers make counting increasingly difficult. Counters outperform people when it comes to counting accurately.
There are 2 types of classifications:
A Preset Counter counts until the present value reaches a preset value, and then it activates a control output to operate an output device. The term preset in Preset Counter means that you can set a value in advance.
A Total Counter does not output a control signal. It only displays the present value. It is often used when you only have to display a production count, for example, a number of puddings counted.
Tachometer, which is also known as a multifunction counter, is an ultra-compact counter that provides more comprehensive functionality.
The main features are
1. Easy to read
- For better readability, the character height for the present value display is 12 mm on models with 4 digits, the largest class in the industry.
- The wide viewing angle and brightness provide excellent visibility.
- The number of display segments has also been increased to make settings easier to understand, and
- the present value display can be switched between red, green, and orange so that output status can be seen from a distance
2. Safety and Reliability
- New set value limit and counter functions have been added
- New models with two tachometer inputs and two tachometer outputs have been added
3. Save Space
- The body depth has been greatly reduced. Helps in making thinner control panels.
4, Easiest Operation
- Operation is simplified by the Up/Down Key for each digit on 4-digit models and Up Key for each digit on 6-digit models.
