DeviceNet compatible counter

Overview of Digital Linear Gauge
Product Brochures (PDF)
Outer Dimensions (PDF)


The DG-4160 multi-functioned digital gauge counter is highly compatible with PLC incorporating a DeviceNet communication capability.

Direct connection to DeviceNet allows great cost reduction in design, installation and maintenance.

Compact DIN 72 x 72 sized digital gauge counter provides various calculation functions as standard such as color comparator, Max/Min/Range measurement, Offset, Factor.


What is ?

The DeviceNet is an open field network which enables easy connection with various control devices including PLC (Programmable Logic Controller), sensors and actuators. Use of the DeviceNet enables not only to reduce cost for wiring and maintenance due to reduced wiring length, but also to enable connection of DeviceNet compatible devices of various manufacturers. The result is expanded range or device selection thus enabling the building of comfortable and further economical systems.

DeviceNet is controlled by Open DeviceNet Vendors Association (ODVA)



  • communication capable

Direct connection makes good use of advantages of DeviceNet such as cost reductions of wirings, startup man-hours and maintenance. Moreover, all functions the DG-4160 has can be controlled from PLC via DeviceNet.


  • Equipped with external input terminals for Reset, Hold, PeakHold-ON and Comp-ON.

Main control signal can be input from terminal block to design flexible system.

  • Color comparator display

Comparison result monitoring changes of colors on the backlit of LCD (OK:green / NG:red) Other indicator is not required.

  • Providing calculation functions for MAX, MIN, RANGE, OFFSET and FACTOR.

Wide variety of calculation functions is available to meet various measurement requirements.

  • DIN 72×72 compact size
