Press Release Summary:
HT-5000 hand-held tachometer performs contact and non-contact measurements, including non-contact line speed. Visible light allows measurement on rotating body by applying reflective marker on body and pointing tachometer at marker. Measurement ranges include 6-99,000 rpm while in non-contact mode and 6-20,000 rpm in contact mode. Tachometer provides data in rpm, rps, m/min, count and ms on large liquid crystal display.
Original Press Release:
Hand-Held Tachometer with OUTPUT Capabilities
December 1, 2001 Addison, II Ono Sokki Technology, Inc. introduces their new HT-5000 compact hand-held tachometer with built-in analog and pulse output.
For users needing both contact and non-contact measurement capabilities, the HT-5000 has them both, including non-contact line speed.
The use of visible light allows measurement anywhere on a rotating body. The measurement is as simple as applying a piece of reflective marker to the rotating body and pointing the tachometer at the marker. The HT-5000 light emitting section uses a visible light LED, making it easy to verify the position of the light on the measured rotating body.
The HT-5000 has a wide measurement range of (6 - 99,000 rpm) while in the non-contact mode and in the contact mode (6 - 20,000 rpm).
There are five measuring units (rpm, rps, m/min., count and ms.) that can be used for different specific applications, along with an alarm that goes off to warn you when you have exceeded the value you have set.
The large easy to read liquid crystal display is made even easier to read in low light situations, with the addition of the backlit function.
For the users wanting to mount the tachometer on a camera tripod, the HT-5000 makes it possible with it's built in standard thread hole, good for totally hands off operation.
In the maximum and minimum value measurement mode, the max. and min. are consistently updated when the power button is pressed, also accumulated revolutions and period measurements are possible.
The last measured value, maximum value and minimum value are held in memory and displayed on the LCD for 10 minutes.
For user's needing to record rpm, an analog output of 0 to 1V (full scale), along with 3 full scale ranges are provided. Simply attach the cable from the tachometer to a chart recorder and detect trends in rpm variation continuously. For the users needing rotational reference signals, a pulse output with selectable (+/- polarity) is provided. The pulse output provides reference to analyzers and recorders. The pulse output can be used as a rotational reference signal to FFT spectrum analyzers for scheduled data capture, order tracking analysis, etc.
The HT-5000 is powered by three AA batteries that provide 40 hours of continuous use. A "batt" appears on the display to warn you when the batteries are low. An optional AC adapter may be used for your convenience.
