RHEINTACHO‘s mechanical handheld tachometers, HTM’s, are designed to accurately measure RPM and surface speed on a wide range of applications.
The HTM is a favored measurement device in several industries, including elevator maintenance, the mining industry, yarn and wire measurement and others. The large, clear and easy-to-read dial as well as the wide reading range with high definition make the mechanical hand-tachometers easy to use – without the need for any batteries!
Keeping in mind the need to operate tachometers in areas where there is a risk of explosive atmospheres due to either dust particles or gas, our engineers have carried out modifications to enable this version to be certified for use in ATEX Zones 1 and 2 for use in all gas groups with a temperature class of T4 and also makes it suitable for mining applications I M2c. This certificate approves use in underground mining applications. The device has been designed for short term observation and measurement, not for continuous operation.
The ATEX HTM measures rotational or linear speed using various special contact adaptors supplied with the instrument. With no need for batteries, it has the safety and flexibility to satisfy the most demanding requirements for maintenance and calibration. The reference numbers: EX II 2 G D C II C T4, I M2 c
Easily identified by its yellow, ergonomically-designed casing, the ATEX HTM is available in four different models and is supplied in a hard plastic carrying case complete with a set of adaptors.
