Time counter
Registers the operating time of machines, devices, etc. Preset time counters are also available for tasks involving control functions.

Torque [M]
Moment of a force M=F*L [Nm, Ncm, Nmm]

Totalizing counter
A counter which only adds up received pulses, but has no control functions.

Totalizer

TPE
Thermo-plastic polyester elastomer; plastic coating of device cable

Trail
See trailing signal

Trailing signal
A bistable, freely variable range signal which "trails along" when the main preselection is changed.

Transmission ratio
In mechanical counters, the first number indicates the rotation of the counter shaft; the second number shows the count in the display as it changes. Example: with a transmission ratio of 1:10, the display jumps by 10 per revolution of the counter shaft.

Tristate
Control input; switches the outputs either to active or to high impedance.

Two's complement
Number format for the representation of negative numbers; range of values at n bit: -(2n-1) 0 (2n-1-1)
