3 Digit Digital Frequency Counter

Digital Frequency Counter Circuit
This circuit is a digital frequency counter. It covers region 1HZ until 1MHZ. The IC1 schmitt trigger that it regulates the signal of entry and him changes in reasonable level suitable for the IC2-3-4. With the tenth pulse in the entry of IC2/1, is produced a pulse '' carry '' in the IC3/5. The same moment the IC2 causes the depiction in the display 1, The IC3 causes the display 2. When in the entry of IC3 it reaches and the tenth pulse, the display 2 and the display 3, (with total depiction 100, having the display in right order). The exit '' carry'' off IC4/5, can be used in order to it turns on the decimal point (comma) the display 1, in order to it shows a situation over the limits of measurement.

The timed begins with the one of half double timer (IC5A). Switch S1 select the interruption the time in 1sec or in 1ms. At the duration of this interruption, second half the (IC5B), it produces a interruption of depiction 2 or 3sec., at the duration which counter cut off by the entry and the displays remain OFF. In the end of depiction, a pulse RESET, begins the interruption of time/depiction.

The critical point is round the Q1-IC1, which should be placed as long as it becomes more near in the jack of entry, to reject of parasitic signals of high frequency. For the regulation, we can use a frequency counter good precision (if you do not have you are lented) and a generator of signal. We put switch S1, in place [HZ], we apply in the entry a low frequency and we regulate the trimmer TR2, so that we take the right clue, which should suit with source frequency counter We repeat also the regulation for the department of KHZ, with a higher frequency. The supply of circuit becomes with a battery +9V, if it is used as portable or from suitable power supply if it is incorporated in some unit that exists already.
