What is the difference between electromechanical counters and electronic counters?
Electromechanical counters consists of mechanical parts (disks) that are fixed on axles to generate count through the digits 0 through 9 that are marked on their edges. Electromechanical counter can be used as hour meter, pulse meter or pulse counter. Electromechanical counters areknown by its reliability, durability and low prices.
Electronic counters, also known as digital counters, consist of register type circuits such as flip-flops that can store bits, add and/or subtract bits forming the different countingfunctions.
Hour counters are also known as digital timers when different timing functions are achievable such as on delay, off delay, etc like the FMC Series. Some electromechanical counters provide hour counting such as E1HM Series, where it can be used for general time counting in plants, houses and equipments.
Preset counters are also known as digital preset counters where multiple preset values are required.
Pulse / Hour counters are also known as Pulse / Hour meters since they provide two functions, hour meter and pulse counter.
Multifunction counters can be used multiple applications such as counting, measuring and recording time and/or speed.
PCB: Where counter is mounted on printed circuit boards.
Panel: Where counter is mounted on panel
DIN: Where counter is mounted on a din rail inside a cabinet.
LCD: Single line or 2 lines.
LED: Single line or 2 lines.
