With the 8864, ESC introduced Type N – Counter channels. This is an exciting feature that expands the functionality of the 8864 data controller. While some of this functionality can be accomplished using an 8832 data controller, there are multiple benefits to using the Type N channel in an 8864 data controller. Those benefits are as follows:
Counter channels are only available in 8864 data controllers with firmware v5.00 or later. On a basic level, this channel is a counter. However, much can be done by using just a simple counting mechanism. Counter channels are typically used to perform one of the following tasks:
M-type math channels take the instantaneous values of the constituents of an equation and evaluates them, then averages the values together to get the desired interval value. In a P-type math channel, the interval values of the constituents are used to produce the channel value for that interval.
