  • Filter speed settable for 20, 200, or 10,000 Hz
  • Standard Outputs: 1 NPN transistor (2 NPN transistors on Dual & Batch units) & 1 relay (optional 2nd relay on Dual & Batch units)
  • Front panel reset enable and preset lockout
  • Optional RS-485 plug in card
  • CE approved, UL, CUL recognized


The Veeder-Root C628 Digital Counter series are 1/8 DIN instruments which offer breakthrough display technology as well as easy-to-program user setup. The large LED display features the ability to change color based on process status such as exceeding the count preset. Therefore, when monitoring count, position, length, or other critical values, the C628 provides operators with an instant visual alert to changes in the application’s status. The C628 series are versatile, panel mount meters with multi-purpose can be easily configured as batch counters and controllers, totalizers, encoder tachometers, rpm counters, predetermining counters and elapsed time meters
