The circuit presented here counts from 00 to 99 and displays it on two seven segment displays. It can work as free running counter in auto mode or it can count manually when button is pressed. In auto mode it gets continuous pulses and counts continuously at a rate of 1 Hz. That means the count is updated at every second or in other words counter displays time in seconds. This counting rate can be changed by changing pulse frequency. In manual mode, the count is incremented when push button is pressed manually. So it can be used to count up to 100 (from 0 to 99) as per manual requirement.The counter circuit is made up of decade counter cum display driver chip CD4026. The pulse circuit is build using IC555. The circuit can be used in many applications like object counter, frequency counter, RPM counter, stop watch timer, token count display and many others.
