Proton Basic code example for PIC18f452 counter project

PROTON BASIC UP and DOWN Counter PROJECT with RESET USING PIC Microcontroller PIC18f452
Introduction of counter Project:-
This is a simple microcontroller project build for a Up and Down Counter with Reset of counts facility.
In this project PIC18f452 is used for processing and this device is the heart of the project. A 2 line 20 character General purose LCD is used as basic display of the counter.
In this project three push button are used as inputs of counter, but any TTL signal provider ciruit cn be interfaced which uses IR,LDR,phototransistor or optocoupler as input. Because this counter can be used any where, to counts any object passing through a certain location. This counter project counts up to 1000000 counts.
Thus this counter project is suitable where we have to counts any large number of objects.

Parts of the Counter Project:-
This counter project is based on a very few components which are listed as follows:-

1. The heart of the counter project is PIC18f452 (1Nos)
2. Liquid Crystal Display LCD ( 2 line 20 Characters 1Nos)
3. crystal 4MHz (1Nos)
4. Capacitor 20pF (2Nos)
5. Push Buttons (4 Nos)
6. Resistors (10K ohm 4Nos)
7. variable resistor (10K ohm 1 Nos)

A regulated power supply of +5V DC is required to make this project operational.

Circuit Diagram of Counter Project:-
Below is the circuit diagram of counter using PIC18f452 PIC Microcontroller and LCD.

Main Features of Up and Down Counter:-

The object counter based on PIC Microcontroller have following three basic inputs.
  1. Up button for increment the nuber of counts
  2. Down Button for decrement the number of counts
  3. Reset Button for reset the counted value to zero.
Although in this project push button are being used as the input to counter, but this project accept any TTL input from any circuit which used IR,optocoupler,phototransistor,relays,LDR. Actually this counter is ready to use counting any object, the only thing it requires is TTL pulses for increment , decrement or reset the operation.

Code of counter:-
The code of this project is written in basic language and compiled using proton basic compiler from Crownhill. Proton IDE is a professional and powerful visual Integrated Development Environment (IDE) designed specifically for the Proton Plus compiler.
  The code is written below which uses many built in functions and commands.
