Abstract

The mechanism forms the main structure of a counter assembly; e.g., a means of indicating time (hours, minutes, etc.) or mileage as an odometer. It can also be used for products that may require alphabetical readout such as in games or novelty items. Typically, an electrical integrated circuit timing circuit is the means for providing a regulated electrical power source to drive the mechanical mechanisms.
