Function to count an external signal

Postby armagon29 » Fri Jan 08, 2010 4:35 am

Dear All:

I not sure if Flowcode V3 has an option / function to count an external signal coming from a external sensor (hall sensor of photodiode), this is to create a Tachometer, I need to control a speed of gas engine and show a RPM in 7seg display or LCD

Thanks

The article at the link below describes methods of time and frequency measurement that might be useful when creating a tachometer program.
