registers the thermal effect per unit time
Explanation:
"Per unit time" is definitely right, and "thermal effect" seems reasonable. My doubt is over which verb is best for "cuenta", but I think the idea is probably "register". Good luck!

I interpret "cuenta" as count and display; I think "register" covers both.
