Hand Held Tachometers
(Laser Tachometer, Optical Tachometer, Photo Tachometer, Conveyor/Belt Speed)

Hand Held Portable Tachometers from RDI are available in “Non-Contact”, “Contact” and “Combo” versions. Non-Contact Handheld Tachometers use either a laser or optical sensor to view a moving target or shaft. Contact versions are designed to actually contact the moving part making them an excellent choice for measuring belt and conveyor speed. Combo versions are also available that perform both contact and non-contact functions. Laser and Optical Sensors are extremely sensitive to the contrast of the target. Reflective tape is used to increase contrast.
