The CUB5 provides the user the ultimate in flexibility, from its complete user programming to the optional relay output 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. This unit has a backlight LCD. The backlight version is user selectable for green or red backlighting with variable display intensity.
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 modules. Setpoint capability is field installable with the addition of the single setpoint relay output module or the dual setpoint solid state output module. Serial communications capability for RS232 or RS485 is added with a serial option module.
