Preset counter

Preset counter are measuring and control devices that are mainly used in manufacturing processes. Processes are recorded via pulses that sensors deliver to the measuring device. Once the preset value has been reached, an output can be switched to start a specific process. For example, in automated packaging processes, the carton is forwarded by one position when the filling quantity is reached. When used with rotary encoders, a position or angle can be detected. Likewise, the counter can be used as a tachometer by evaluating the incoming pulses per time unit.
