Hi Steve, Many thanks for the datasheet, I can get some info' from it.

When I ordered it I asked them to enclose a datasheet, which they did, but it was in Chinese!!, an order coming from the UK, beats me.

If anyone has an English datasheet I would appreciate a copy please or a link to one.

Best Regards,

DeepL seems to make a reasonable job of translating that

… here’s the first paragraph:

Input signal: mechanical contact, pulse (low: -30V~+0.6V high: +4V~+30V)
- External signals: photocell, mechanical contact, inductive sensor, encoder
- Output voltage for sensor supply: 5V DC, 24V DC 30mA - Possibility to set A ratio, B increment,
initial value C and change of decimal point.
- Saving the set parameters in case of power failure.
- Set of 14 output relay modes
- 3 input modes including ascending and descending counting, counting
with phase difference accounting (raster form)

Hi Roger,

On Amazon, there is some limited data for this device, and if you scroll down there is a section marked 'Reviews with Images' - this includes a tiny two page data sheet in 'Engrish'. I was able to save this image, paste it into a LibreOffice document, then enlarge it to A4 page size. Naturally this ends up rather indistinct without further processing, but it is just readable - may be some help.


The first part of the 'chinese' document mentioned above is actually Bulgarian, and can be simply copied and pasted into Google Translate, when, as mentioned, it produces a reasonably intelligible output - Ii did try to copy it into here, but although Google produces a fairly well ordered text which is not difficult to read, it loses the formatting when pasted into this message, so difficult to read here.

Hi Roger,

You can find the English user manual of the HB961 digital readout on this link:

HB961 counter

In MEW 305, the recent july 2021 issue, page 26, you will find in my contribution how to connect it with a wire encoder. I used it for a DRO for my Myford ML7R lathe, one for the X-axis and one for the Y-axis. They work fine.

Best Regards,
