Function and Applications

The universal counter is used for measuring time, frequency, pulse rates, pulse counting, periodic times, speeds and velocities.


  • The device has all the qualities that are expected of a modern universal counter and is also equiped with a number of technical specifics of how it specifically arise from the requirements of science teaching practice.
  • For the scientifically correct representation of each measurement is shown in principle with the associated unit. With the overflow of the display is automatically switched into the next area.
  • Before the measurement starts it can be manually adjusted to a maximum of 6 decades defined range, e.g. to suppress is not physically meaningful digits on the display.
  • A special jack for direct connection of a GM counter tube is available for radioactivity experiments. The required voltage can be changed manually to determine the characteristics of a counter tube too.
  • The stopwatch function can be entered by means of electrical contacts, sensors, or manually in the various types of triggers for the precise starting and stopping for time measurement.
  • The measured values are represented by six red 20mm high-contrast 7-segment displays. An additional three-digit display is used to display the unit (ms, s, Hz, kHz, MHz, I / s, RPM, Imp, V, m / s).
  • The various operating states are indicated by LEDs.
  • Range switching in all modes manually (before measurement) and automatically when an overflow.
  • USB port is used for firmwareupdate of the device.
