Hand-Held Tachometers


The PLT-5000 Pocket Laser Tachometer accurately measures RPM and Surface speed using contact or non-contact measurement techniques. This battery-powered unit is extremely compact for convenient portable use and is supplied in a rugged and attractive plastic housing that is ergonomically designed for optimum comfort.

When measuring RPM in the non-contact measuring mode, the PLT-5000 emits a precision laser beam that is aimed at a small piece of reflective tape, which is affixed to the rotating target.

Complete Kit
The PLT-5000 comes as a complete kit with storage case, 6″ circumference wheel, Funnel Adapter, Cone Adapter, Contact Adapter, three (3) AA Batteries, reflective tape, NIST certificate, and instruction manual.

The PLT-5000 is extremely easy to operate and quickly converts from non-contact operation to contact operation by screwing the contact adapter in place. In addition to RPM’s, a wide variety of engineering units for surface speed and length are user-selected via the front panel buttons. Units include; feet per minute, meters/min, yards per minute, inches per minute, and more.

A built-in memory stores up to 10 measurements plus minimum, maximum, average, and last.
