Low cost micro-controller based 4 digit presettable LED down counter with four operating modes that control how the output behaves when count reaches zero. Suitable for low to high speed applications (30 to 4100cps). Ideal for process control and counting applications.
Accepts inputs from any make contact so can be used with pulses from switches, relays, open collectors outputs or simply push buttons.
Two onboard push button switches (SET and INC) are used to preset the starting count and select the operating mode.
Inputs for Count, Rate (debounce) and Reset (to preset value). Output is an open collector transistor (NPN, 100mA @30V). This can be used with to drive our 3156 relay boards or the 3141 delay timer board.
The four operating modes are detailed in the User Manual (see Technical Specifications table below).
Count, Reset, Rate, Output and Power In are brought out to a 10-way header strip for easy connection. The board has Power In reverse polarity protection.Specifications
