We have today started work on our next module, the Accra counter module. The hardware is already done. This unit will be able to count pulses on four channels and also measure frequency on each channel. It can have alarms set for going over a counter level or when counting down to zero and for a frequency that is outside of a specified frequency range.
It has a built-in linear calculation algorithm that can translate pulse to real world measurement units. This can for example be used for utility meter measurements and gives the correct measurement value sent out on the VSCP bus.
Kilafors will be supplied later as an add on modules to detect S0 (IR) pulses so that Accra can be hooked on to an electrical meter and output power usage data.
This will be the seventh module in the CAN4VSCP series and will be followed by Vilnius for 12-bit A/D measurements.
