The Inline IB IL CNT counter terminal registers and processes quick pulse trains from sensors. It has a counter input, a control input, and a switching output that can be parameterized by the module itself. This way, quick response times can be achieved independent of the bus and the control system.
The module can be operated in different operating modes:
- Event counting
- Time measurement and
- Pulse generation
The inputs can be used to connect initiators with 24 V DC supply and 5 V DC supply. The switching output supplies a maximum current of 500 mA.
The Inline counter terminals can be labeled using hinged labeling fields. The fields have insert cards that can be labeled individually to suit the application. Additionally, there is the ZB-FM-6... Zack strip for labeling the terminal points.
