The Bricklet has an integrated edge counter and it can measure duty cycle, period, frequency and value per channel. The frequency can be as high as 4MHz.
The edge counter can count rising edges, falling edges or both. The direction of the count (up or down) is configurable. It is also possible to use the value of one channel as the direction (e.g. high = up, low = down) for another channel.
All 4 channels are galvanically isolated.
Example applications for the Bricklet are reading of a PWM signal and reading of sensors that have edge counts or frequency as output.
This Bricklet ist not galvanically isolated to the Tinkerforge system. This means that there is a direct electrical connection between the terminals of the Bricklet and the rest of the system. Dependent of the application this can lead to undesired connections, ground loops or short circuits. These problems can be prevented by using the Bricklet together with a Isolator Bricklet.
The Industrial Counter Bricklet has a 7 pole Bricklet connector and is connected to a Brick with a 7p-10p Bricklet cable.
