Tachometers are instruments designed to measure the rotation speed of a shaft or disk, and are most commonly used in machinery such as cars, trucks, tractors and aircraft.
They can also be used on other machinery outside of the vehicle industry, and are commonly used in industrial applications to measure whether machinery is operating at the correct levels of efficiency. Sudden increases or drops in RPM (Revolutions per Minute) can indicate machines running too slowly or perhaps working too hard and inefficiently.
Most tachometers are portable, easy-to-use devices. Such examples include the Fluke 810T, which is an ideal solution for regular maintenance of machinery. By using a device such as this you can survey equipment thoroughly to anticipate failures before they actually happen, saving you time and money getting machinery repaired.
Other devices such as the Extech 461950 Panel Mount Tachometer allow continuous display of RPM, ensuring that you know about sudden spikes/drops in RPM via built-in alarm systems. Devices such as this one are a great way to keep the operation of machinery completely in check all the time, allowing you to again stop errors before they become a problem.
