The Laureate stopwatch meter is designed to time single events, such as sporting events or processes, which produce start and stop pulses. It can also time the width of a single pulse. Highest resolution is 0.2 µs, since timing is achieved by counting 5.5 MHz clock pulses. For long intervals, the display is updated continuously during timing. Laureate™ stopwatch timers use the FR dual-channel signal conditioner and Standard counter main board.
A-A Stopwatch Mode. Time can be measured between a start pulse and a stop pulse, both on Channel A, from either the positive or negative edges.
A-B Stopwatch Mode. Time can also be measured between a start pulse on Channel A (positive or negative edge) and a stop pulse on Channel B (positive or negative edge). This mode allows inputs from different sources. In addition, the A and B inputs can be tied together to start the stopwatch with one polarity and stop it with the other polarity.
Rate Based on 1/Time Mode. Highly accurate rate can be displayed by taking the inverse of time. Extensive arithmetic capabilities allow display in engineering units, such as meter/sec. This mode requires use of an Extended counter.
Display. The event time (Item #1) may be displayed H, M or S format with six-digit resolution. The longest single-event timing interval is 999,999 hours. The highest resolution is 0.2 µs. The event time may also be displayed in HH.MM.SS clock format with 1 s resolution. The stopwatch display is updated during timing at a rate controlled by a gate time, up to 25/s. It is reset to zero when the next start pulse occurs. Accumulated time from multiple events (Item #2) is also tracked and may be displayed up to 999,999 hours.
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.
Digital filtering is selectable for electrically noisy environments, including a batch averaging filter and an adaptive moving average filter which provides a choice of 8 time constants from 80 ms to 9.6 s. When a significant change in signal level occurs, that filter adapts by briefly switching to the shortest time constant to follow the change, then reverts back to the selected time constant. In a selectable Auto filter mode, the filter time constant is automatically selected based on detected signal noise.
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.
