March 1, 2015 - Automatic Timing & Controls announces Model 385AR, a multi-function multi-range industrial timer/counter. It is designed to accept standard voltage inputs of 3 to 30V DC, making it compatible with most industry proximity switches, solid state devices, as well as potential free contact encoders. Three unique input speeds, of 3 Hz, 30 Hz, and 5 kHz, respectively, are also standard.
The series incorporates a built-in 12 VDC 30 mA sensor power supply with integral short circuit protection, as well as options for front panel or remote reset. The 385AR series will also reset on power interruption. The timer/counter mechanism of the Model 385AR is packaged within a highly compact 1/16 DIN (48 x 48 mm) housing with 2 SPST (NO) 5a @ 230 VAC contacts. Standard operating voltage range supply is 85 to 270 VAC/DC (50/60 Hz), with a maximum power consumption rating of 5VA.
In addition, series units feature a large, easy-to-read, four-digit, seven-segment LED display. They also incorporate dual setpoints, programmable input scaling, and batch counting, with a standard time setting accuracy of 0.05%, and onboard memory retention. A special onboard LED status indicator offers a unique and effective method for visual control indication. Units are also both UL recognized and CE certified. They are easy and quick to both install and maintain.
The Model 385AR is suited for applications such as OEM equipment, packaging and plastics manufacturing, machinery monitoring and control, materials handling, conveyor control, motors, compressors and pumps, and industrial process control.
