Digital Counters

Digital counters are used on folders, stitchers, and other bindery equipment, as well as various inserters and mailing machines. Every counter is very easy to install on most Challenge, MBM, Baum, O&M, Stahl, and MBO folder models.


Model TC (Total Count)
This basic counter has six digits, and will count up to 999,999

Model RTC (Rate & Total Count)
In addition to the total count, the RTC display can show the count rate in pieces per hour. The rate function is displayed until the next push of the count/rate switch.

Model BCV (Batch Counter with Air Valve)
This is a seven-digit total counter, and has two rate meters and job time display. It includes a vacuum valve, while the BCR model includes timing relay and socket but no air valve.

All Counters Feature:
- 30 years of experience in the design and manufacture of digital counters
- Fully electronic with no moving parts
- Very large and bright LED displays (can easily be read from 15 feet away)
- The sensor counts using invisible infrared light.
- The sensor sensitivity adjusts automatically
- Electronic memory uses advanced electronic circuitry to retain the count.
- There are NO batteries that ever require replacement!
- Comes with a 10' sensor curly cord, and mounts with its own magnet
- Adapters are provided for non-magnetic surfaces
- Counters mount to a standard 6" post. Four optional posts are available, as shown below.
- Counter body is compact and easy to install without tools.
- Each counter is bench tested for 100 hours, and includes a one-year warranty on parts, materials, and workmanship.

Optional Mounts
Optional Mounts include a long post mount with an 18" post, and magnetic mounts. Choose a magnetic mount after determining the height of the mounting point for the counter. If the counter is to be mounted on a horizontal surface at chest to eye level, we recommend the #1 magnetic mount with the straight post. If it is to be mounted lower than that, we recommend the #2 magnetic mount with angled post, to angle the display up towards the operator's eyes. The #3 vertical magnetic mount (not pictured) is the solution if there is no suitable horizontal surface. Counters require 2" of clearance behind the case for the sensor plug.
