A Counter

How can it be defined in simple terms?

A counter can be used to count a number of actions or events. It thus participates in production management and preventive maintenance. A ratemeter can be used to display the speed of rotation of a motor in real time.

To execute which actions?

Up counting, Down counting
For up counting or down counting a number of parts, events, a running time, the counter is the ideal solution. There are different types of counter with the following functions: up/down counter, batch counter, ratemeter, chronometer, multi-totalizer, elapsed time counter, impulse counter.
Informing, Displaying
A counter can allow a user to be informed and to display data and quantities easily. The data displayed can be read directly on the front panel.
Triggering, Actuating
A counter can be used to trigger an action or an intervention on a machine. The outputs actuate directly and/or transmit data to the control system.
Measuring, Chronometer timing
A counter can be used to schedule preventive maintenance. The machine running time is measured and the duration of an action timed with a chronometer.

A digital range and an electromechanical range


  • For fast count applications, a high-speed counting frequency: up to 50 kHz.
  • A two-color or backlit LCD dual display for ease of reading.
  • Considerable space saving due to dual-function electromechanical and electronic ranges.
  • A complete output operating logic to cover complex applications.
  • Easier maintenance thanks to removable connectors (CTR48).
  • An enhanced multifunction electronic range for optimized stocks.
