Multifunction counter is simple and reliable

January 2019 Sensors & Transducers

Suitable for a wide range of applications such as time control, position indication, control of rotation speed and batch counting, the Hengstler Tico 772 multifunctional counter is extremely easy to use. Available from Countapulse Controls, this electronic preset counter has been engineered for simplicity as well as reliable operation and allows use by more than one individual.

The robust housing incorporates an easy-to-read display with large digits (48 mm x 48 mm in size) as well as four large buttons to facilitate all configuration adjustment. The counter is easy to program and has three preset options. This simplification of handling also extends to the installation of the unit, which is via pluggable terminals.

The Hengstler Tico 772 is suitable for use in ambient temperatures up to 50°C, is ingress protected to IP65, and is both shock and vibration resistant. Input frequency is up to 60 kHz and signal times are programmable for up to 10 minutes.
