TC-48 Series Preset Timer Counter Tachometer
Multi-function 6 digit Timer/Counter/Tachometer with RS-232, RS-485, RS-422 Serial Communications

This Fargo Controls Inc. is proud to announce its latest addition, the TC series. This series is a powerful 6-digit multifunction programmable preset Timer/Counter/Tachometer with a communication interface. It has RS-232, RS-485, RS-422 Serial Communications and supports Modbus protocol. This series can be connected to a PC for programming and logging of data.

The Timer has 10 output modes, 10 timing ranges in 3 configurations.

The Counter has 12 output and 5 input modes in 6 configurations and scaling for displaying of specific units or lengths.

The Tachometer displays rate per second (Hz) and has 4 output modes.
