This was a small circuit made for driving an Impact counter. The heart being ICL8038. It must have been a Motor driving a Conveyor, the motor has a feedback attachment called Tachogenerator.

Voltage to Frequency Converter ICL8038

Only part of the circuit is shown here. See the image of product here Tacho Counter. The configuration is derived from the Application Notes of Intersil. The Voltage from Tachogenerator is Measured on a DPM-DVM and also fed to this circuit after attenuation and filtering. The square pulses of 8038 is used to derive a Logic pulse train for a CD4040. The CD4040 works of 0 and 12V. The above circuit is on 12 and -12. That is the reason R10-R15-Q1 are used. The pulses are 0-12V pulses. The Zero is Virtual like the Virtual Ground in low current power supplies.
