Frequency Counter

Measure the velocity of an object's circular rotation over time. 
Frequency 
Frequency Counter 
Count the number of cycles that occur over a period of time, specifically waveform intervals. 
Pulse 
Pulse Counter 
Count the number of amplitude changes (pulses) in the signal. 
Pulse Width 
Frequency Counter 
The length of one cycle over a period of time, specifically a waveform interval.
