Two-in-One: Tachometer and Auto-Sync stroboscope combined in a compact Laser-Tachometer

28 May 2020

The RT STROBE pocketLED LASER is an innovative addition to the portfolio of measuring devices from Rheintacho.

By integrating the unique auto-sync laser function, users get two devices in one: a portable stroboscope and in addition a digital handheld tachometer with laser measurement.

The tachometer function can be used up to a distance of approx. 3 metres. The laser beam is aimed at a reflection mark. The reflected beam triggers the receiver which is integrated in the flash head of the instrument. 

The following rotational speed measurements are possible: average speed, minimum and maximum speed. 

In the stroboscope mode, the device offers all state-of-the-art features. And in addition, an intelligent innovation: quick and sure adjustment of the flash frequency using the auto-sync function. 

Like many good innovations, the basic idea is surprisingly simple. The reflected laser beam triggers the stroboscope head flash rate. As the reflected laser beam and flash are within the same area, the conversion of the idea into a robust easy-to-use technology was simply spoken “demanding”.

Auto-sync does not only simplify identifying the correct flash frequency, but also automatically takes care of any rotational speed fluctuation of the object observed. Like the name says: auto-sync!

Another disturbing phenomenon has also been eliminated with this measuring twins: the harmonic multiplication. Using laser synchronisation, flash rate is always corresponding with the real movement frequency. The stand-still images at multiples of the right frequency, are no longer a problem with automatic synchronisation. The user is always led to a correct frequency by auto sync.

The clear difference between using the instrument as a tachometer or stroboscope is, in our opinion, recognisable in a clever way: different colours of the LCD display.

A long collection of different applications can be viewed on the website of RHEINTACHO in the application area. Further explanation about use are shown on videos on the RHEINTACHO YouTube channel.
