Simultaneous operation in different modes is now possible with this recent development of the highly successful 9100 multi-function counter. Additional enhancements include 3-line display, more keys, network capability, enhanced programming, EEPROM memory avoiding the need for a battery, and on-screen programming prompts in four languages.


  • Simultaneously maintains any 3 of the following: Count preset, count pre warn, batch preset, overspeed, underspeed condition and displays count, total and speed.
  • Counts in any of 7 modes: A-B, A+B, A/B, count and direction and quadrature x1, x2 & x4.
  • EEPROM retains program and data for 40 years with no power.
  • 3 line Supertwist LCD display viewable from any angle.
  • Easily programmed in English, German, French or Spanish using simple menu structure and 10-key keypad.
  • Counting continues while rate measurement is in progress.
  • Accurate enough for position sensing and robotic control.
  • CAN bus/Device Net interface (as an option).
  • Displayed values, choice of engineering units and 12 characters of user programmable text can be printed directly from the IBM/Epson compatible serial printer port.
  • Can be powered from 85-265VAC for world wide use.
  • Multiplying and dividing prescalers enable display directly in the required (engineering) units.
  • Manual, remote and automatic resets available.
  • Remote inhibit and remote keyboard disable.
  • Fast electronic or slow contact closure inputs, all with optical isolation. Contact closure inputs are debounced.
  • Auxiliary 12VDC 100mA power output to power sensor.
  • Environmental protection to IP65.
  • CE approved. UL and cUL approval pending.

The 9100 carries out rate measurement, batch counting and totalising simultaneously. Rate mode is signified by an R appearing at the top left hand corner of the display and counting carries on in the background. The first line of the display shows pulses per minute (PPM) unless a prescaler is in use.
