A stroboscope is useful in analyzing rotating objects through the use of a strobe light set at a certain frequency. Matching the timing of the strobe to the rotation of a spinning object, or to some fraction of the timing, will cause the rotating object to appear motionless. This is useful for aligning more than one rotation together and is also used for ignition timing for internal combustion engines.

A tachometer is a simple measure of the rpm of a spinning object. This meter features a non-contact photo tachometer method which can measure rpm up to 99,999rpm. This meter uses visible light reflected back from a piece of reflective tape attached to the spinning object. This is an extremely effective and safe method of testing as it requires no contact with a spinning object and can measure extremely high rpm.

This meter is great for analyzing all kinds of spinning objects including shafts, cylinders, motors, wheels and really anything else. Featuring a reversing display depending on the measurement mode to ensure the display is always upright.
