MODEL CUB5 - MINIATURE ELECTRONIC 8-DIGIT DUAL
COUNTER AND RATE INDICATOR
The CUB5 provides the user the ultimate in flexibility, from its complete user
programming to the optional setpoint control and communication capability.
The meter can be programmed as a single or dual counter with rate indication
capability. The display can be toggled either manually or automatically between
the selected displays.
The CUB5 display has 0.46" (11.7 mm) high digits. The LCD is available in
two versions, reflective (CUB5R000) and backlight (CUB5B000). The backlight
version is user selectable for green or red backlighting with variable display
The counter is programmable for one of eight different count modes,
including bi-directional and quadrature. When programmed as a dual counter,
each counter has a separate scale factor and decimal points. In the counter/rate
indicator mode, each have their own scaling and decimal point read-outs in
different engineering units. The internal batch counter can be used to count
setpoint output activations.
The meter has two separate inputs which provide different functions
depending on which operating mode is selected. Input A accepts the signal for
the Count and/or Rate displays, while Input B accepts the signal for the Count
display or direction control. In the anti-coincidence mode, both inputs are
monitored simultaneously so that no counts are lost. The resulting display can
be chosen as the sum or difference of the two inputs. The Rate Indicator has
programmable low (minimum) and high (maximum) update times to provide
optimal display response at any input frequency. There is a programmable user
input that can be programmed to perform a variety of functions.
The capability of the CUB5 can be easily expanded with the addition of
option cards. Setpoint capability is field installable with the addition of the
single setpoint relay output card or the dual setpoint solid state output card.
Serial communications capability for RS232 or RS485 is added with a serial
The CUB5 can be powered from an optional Red Lion Micro-Line/Sensor
Power Supply (MLPS), which attaches directly to the back of a CUB5. The
MLPS is powered from 85 to 250 VAC and provides up to 400 mA to drive the
unit and sensors.
The CUB5 receives incoming pulses and multiplies them by the Count Scale
Factor to obtain the desired reading for the count display. Input A accepts the
signal for the count and Input B is used for quadrature, dual counter, anticoincidence
counting, or up/down control counting.
The rate indicator utilizes the signal at Input A to calculate the rate value
using a time interval method (1/tau). The unit counts on the negative edge of the
input pulses. After the programmed minimum update time elapses and the next
negative edge occurs, the unit calculates the input rate based on the number of
edges that occurred during the elapsed time. The input rate is then multiplied by
the rate scaling value to calculate the rate display.
At slower rates, averaging can be accomplished by programming the rate
minimum update time for the desired response. Extensive scaling capabilities
allow practically any desired reading at very slow count rates.
All safety related regulations, local codes and instructions that appear in this
literature or on equipment must be observed to ensure personal safety and to
prevent damage to either the instrument or equipment connected to it. If
equipment is used in a manner not specified by the manufacturer, the protection
provided by the equipment may be impaired.
Do not use this meter to directly command motors, valves, or other actuators
not equipped with safeguards. To do so can be potentially harmful to persons or
equipment in the event of a fault to the meter.
