Labs use this high accuracy unit to check speeds of centrifuges, motors, or stirrers. Five digit LCD is a vivid ½-inch high display. Tachometer takes only three seconds for most readings. A unique memory feature permits recalling the highest, lowest, and last reading. Unit is extremely easy to use; operation may be learned in one minute. One end of the unit provides contact readings with a rotating spindle. The other end makes touchless readings using a beam of light. The light may be held as far away as twelve inches.

Touchless, no contact operation is safe and easy. Tachometer measures revolutions per minute anywhere from two to seventy-eight inches away from any rotating object. Labs and plants use this high accuracy unit to read speeds of centrifuges, motors, and stirrers. Five digit LCD is a highly visible 3/8-inch-high display. Unit shines a beam of light which reflects off self-adhesive tabs to give readings of 10 to 99,999 revolutions per minute. Resolution is 0.1 below 1000 and 1 above. Accuracy is ±1 RPM or 0.05%. Utilizes a precision quartz crystal for an accurate time base.

Touchless handheld point-and-shoot tachometer targets a rotating object and provides instant precision results. Optical no-contact measurements are made by placing a piece of reflective tape on the rotating object. Red LED light locks on the self-adhesive reflective tape (30” supplied) and counts rotations. In two seconds it provides rock solid answers from 10 to 99,999 revolutions per minute (RPM). Five-digit resolution is 0.001, 0.01, 0.1, or 1 depending on the revolutions displayed. Unit is designed to measure centrifuges, pumps, rollers, shafts, gears, motors, and moving surfaces.

Any rotating surface may be touched by the cone convex tip, funnel concave tip, or speed wheel for instant results. Tachometer displays revolutions per minute (RPM) from 10.000 to 99,999 (resolution 0.001, 0.01, 0.1, 1). In addition, it reports results in feet per minute 3.0000 to 30,000, yards per minute 1.000 to 10,000, and meters per minute 1.000 to 9999.9 (resolution for all three is 0.0001, 0.001, 0.01, 0.1 depending on the revolutions displayed). Unit is designed to measure centrifuges, pumps, rollers, shafts, gears, motors, and moving surfaces. For accuracy, see chart.
