Note:

1.There is no substitute product for the 24 VAC model because there are no 24 VAC H7AN models. Step up the voltage with a transformer and use 100 to 240 VAC model or see whether 24 VAC/12 to 24 VDC H7BR Digital Counters can be used.

2.H7A is an incrementing counter. For H7AN 2-digit or 4 digit counter, set the UP-DOWN switch to UP, and for H7AN 6-digit or 8-digit counter, set the counting function selector to UP. These are the default settings.

3.The panel cutout for the front panel with dimensions W72, H72 are compatible.

4.Be careful because the terminal numbers are not compatible.
