Key Features • Fluctuating frequency measurement of power lines for commercial power (direct input of up to 200 V class line) • Isolated 2 channel input • Max. rated voltage to ground: 300 V AC or DC (CAT II) • Pulse counting for the encoder • Used in measuring motor rotation, pulse integration, duty ratio, and pulse width • Encoder divider function

Model No. (Order Code)

8970 For MR6000, MR8847A, MR8827, and similar products

Note: This module must be used with the Memory HiCorder. Input cords are not included. Please purchase them separately.


Record frequency fluctuation and pulse count/integration data

Use the Frequency Unit 8970 to record measured waveform frequency, RPM, input pulse integration, duty ratio, and pulse width variations. It can accommodate numerous use cases, including measurement of motor RPM, vehicle speed, and power supply frequency fluctuations. Thanks to a maximum input voltage of 400 V DC, it can also directly measure 3-phase circuits carrying up to 200 V.
