Abstract:In a model we described earlier (McAllan and Wood 1963) short signals sometimes did not actuate the digital counter. The new model is much more sensitive to changes in the amount of light and to pulses of shorter duration. We are interested in using 2 such counters in an olfactometer for bees, but the counter may be of interest to others. Our design is more convenient for our purposes than the phototube detector designed by Argyle and Chapman (1960).
