TEC-1 Timed Event Counter (CORNERSTONE)

Counts Events With or Without the Use of a Time Window

The TEC-1 has three modes of operation:

The TEC-1 is an ideal link between an Event Detector, such as the Dagan Model WD2 Window Discriminator, and a chart recorder or computer. The TEC-1 counts events through a TTL event input BNC, and outputs total events to both a 10mVper event BNC and also to a Digital Meter.
 Front Panel Controls:
  • Thumbwheel Switch - Controls the internal timing of the window in which events are counted.
  • X1/X10 Switch - Determines the range of the thumbwheel switch. In the X1 position, the range is from 0.1 to 29.9 seconds. In the X10 position, the range is from 1 to 299 seconds.
  • LED - Lights when the time window is running.
  • Auto Repeat/Single Switch - In "Single" mode, at the end of the time window the TEC-1 stops counting and holds the total events counted until the next start/reset. In "Auto Repeat" mode, at the end of the time window the total events are reset to zero and another time window begins.
  • Event Monitor - Displays the total number of events and holds until reset. Note:As the meter is an analog input meter, the total number of events may vary by 1% of the reading above 100 events (range is approximately 1300 events).
  • Time Done BNC - Outputs a 1 msec TTL pulse at the end of the time window
  • Gate BNC - Allows for external time window control. Counts events when in Gate mode and TTL high signal is applied to the Gate BNC.
  • Time Window/Con't/Gate Switch - In "Time Window" position, operation of the internal time window section is activated. In "Con't" position, the TEC-1 continuously counts events without a time window, and can be reset to zero with the Start/Reset switch or BNC. In "Gate" position, the external gate timing is activated
  • Start/Reset - The Start/Reset push button switch and the TTL input BNC(TTL high level triggers Start/Reset) initiate both the Start counting and the reset to zero functions.
  • Event Input BNC - Each TTL high input pulse counts one event
  • Analog Output BNC - Outputs an analog positive DC signal of 10mVper event up to approximately 13 volts or 1300 events.
  • Warranty: 1 Year Parts and Labor
  • Power: 115 or 230 VAC, 50 or 60 Hz, 10 watts (specify both voltage and frequency)
