We supply both laser and contact tachometers for measuring RPM and linear surface speed on a wide range of moving components including motors, pumps and conveyor belts. We also have the only tachometer with a built-in IR thermometer used to provide an indication of overheating motors and failing bearings.
Tachometers use either lasers or contact measurement to monitor RPM or linear surface speed of moving machinery such as motors, pumps, treadmills, and conveyor belts. This is essential to ensuring that performance of such machinery is correctly monitored and allows the user to act should a moving part be rotating more slowly or more quickly than it should. Optical tachometers have the advantage of being easier to use and set up but lack the high degree of accuracy of contact tachometers.
