The Laureate A-to-B Time Interval Meter can display pulse width or time delay between individual pulses to a resolution of 0.2 µs. It can also display average pulse width or average time delay between multiple pulses.

Time interval is measured between inputs on channels A and B. Timing starts when a pulse is applied to Channel A (selectable positive or negative edge), and ends when a pulse is applied to Channel B (selectable positive or negative edge). In case of a single pulsed signal, the A and B inputs can be tied together. A positive or negative slope may be selected to start timing, and the opposite slope must be selected to stop timing. Timing is achieved by counting 5.5 MHz clock pulses. Multiple integral time intervals are averaged over a gate time which is selectable from 10 ms to 199.99 s and also controls the display update time.

Time interval can be displayed in seconds, milliseconds, or microseconds with 6-digit resolution. In the typical application, time is displayed in milliseconds with 1 µs resolution. For times less than 100 ms, display resolution down to 0.2 µs can be achieved by applying a multiplier of 10, moving the decimal point by one position, and averaging many time intervals.

Highly accurate rate can be displayed by taking the inverse of time. Extensive arithmetic capabilities allow display in engineering units, such as meters/sec. Rate based on time requires use of the Extended vounter main board.

The FR dual-channel signal conditioner board accepts inputs from proximity switches with PNP or NPN output, TTL or CMOS logic, magnetic pickups, contact closures, and other signals from 12 mV to 250 Vac. Jumper selections provide optimum operation for different sensor types and noise conditions. A built-in isolated 5, 10, or 24 Vdc excitation supply can power proximity switches and other sensors, and eliminate the need for an external power supply.

Designed for system use. Optional plug-in boards for communications and control include Ethernet and other serial communication boards, dual or quad relay boards, and single or dual isolated analog output boards. Laureates may be powered from 85-264 Vac or optionally from 12-32 Vac or 10-48 Vdc. The display is available with red or green LEDs. The 1/8 DIN case meets NEMA 4X (IP65) specifications from the front when panel mounted. Any setup functions and front panel keys can be locked out for simplified usage and security. All power and signal connections are via UL / VDE / CSA rated screw clamp plugs.
