[DISPLAY_ULTIMATE_PLUS]

Several models with a variety of configurations provide up to ten counter/timer channels for counting events, generating waveform control signals, measuring pulse-widths or periodic rates, and monitoring operations.

Support for internal or external triggering simplifies the synchronization of operations to specific events. Counter functions can use internally generated clocks or an externally supplied clock.

  • Description

    Screw terminal panels simplify field signal wiring. A cable connector provides a clean interface to the I/O board or module.

    Many termination panels have a compact footprint and mount neatly on a DIN rail strip. Other panels are designed for mounting directly onto a standard 19-inch computer rack.

    All of Acromag’s I/O boards have a corresponding termination panel. This convenience saves you the time and hassle of finding a compatible panel or crafting your own.

    For more information see the module’s user manual.
