A tachometer simply measures the rotational speed of a shaft, wheel, pulley or a motor. This is a simple concept that can be difficult to accomplish, especially in an engine or confined space. Tachometers have developed into highly accurate, compact devices. Some models even feature laser or photo reading technology which offers non-contact readings and can be used on extremely fast rotations without worrying about damage or injury.

This meter features that very technology, being able to measure rotations up to 99,999rpm. The added ability to measure on any surface of a rotating object makes this a more convenient meter to use. Great for testing hard to reach or extremely high rpm components. This meter uses visible light as its reading device so it is clear where the meter is pointed.

Simply attach the reflective tape to the component to be measured and turn the device on. The readings are updated every second for a quick and easy measurement and tracking of the rpm. THis meter can also make surface measurements with a cone tip, flat tip and a wheel.
