H8GN

Features

World's smallest compact preset counter/timer

The H8GN is a 1/32 DIN timer and counter in one. It is simple to switch between the timer and counter functions. During operation it is also possible to switch the display to monitor the totalising count value in 8 digits. Many sophisticated functions come standard with H8GN.

  • H 24 x W 48 x D 83mm
  • 8-digit display, 4 value and 4 set value
  • Front mounting
  • 0.001 s to 9999 h (configurable)
  • 24VDC
