We have been developing and manufacturing a wide range of measurement instruments since 1916, always with an emphasis on quality and durability. As our products remain in use throughout the world we continue to support our customers with spares, repairs and replacements.
In 2001 we joined with Rheintacho GmbH to create one of the largest rotational speed measurement manufacturers in the world. Rheintacho bring 100 years of additional expertise, especially in the field of non-contact sensors and stroboscopes.
As a consequence, our expanded range now covers a wide selection of products for the measurement, indication and control of rotational speed together with a range of stroboscopes for quality control and maintenance.
Our handheld portable range of tachometers and stroboscopes provides the user with the ability to measure speed and distance as well as carrying out maintenance checks by creating a ‘frozen’ image using a strobe. With equipment for use in a range of environments and applications there is a solution for every need.
Where a fixed solution is required we offer stroboscopes with a range of light sources, widths and trigger configurations to suit individual demands.
Our rotational speed instruments range from mechanical indicators which are directly connected to moving components, to non-contact sensors which generate a signal from the component and transmit this to electronic devices for control and indication. With this range we have the capability to supply effective solutions from stock, or to engineer existing products to meet specific requirements, either as a ‘one-off’ or for a serial production.
Our technical strength is key to remaining at the forefront of our industry, and we work closely with our clients during the product development process to ensure that when we design and develop a product for them it meets the specification and adds value to the finished product. Quality, accuracy and durability are fundamental to our success.
We believe that we can provide a cost-effective solution for your needs, and if there is not currently a standard product, please talk to us and see what we can do for you.
We understand that all of our customers are different and are looking for something that fits their particular requirements. It is for this reason that we offer customised solutions which take into account your individual needs. We believe that communication with our clients is paramount to offering products which are not only high quality and effective but also tailored to the job at hand. If you would like to discuss a customised solution or you have any questions, feel free to get in touch.
Non-contact sensors for measurement, indication and control of rotational speed. These sensors use various magnetic proximity measuring principles to monitor the speed of machine components. The measurement principle is determined by the application and a wide selection of standard units are available. Additionally, for specific requirements these can be either re-engineered or a new version designed and developed.
Here at RheinTacho, we supply a fantastic selection of high-quality 1-Channel Hall Rotational Speed Sensors. These sensors are particularly suitable for scanning in hydro motors and scanning in oil-filled gearboxes but are also suitable for a range of applications including general machine and vehicle construction, mobile operating machines, hydraulic drives and combustion engines. They feature 2.00mm at module 2 and 3.5 mm at module 4 air gaps and a frequency range of 0Hz – 30kHz. Degrees of protection vary across the range but include IP65/ IP67/ IP69K/ IP6K9K.
We also supply a select range of 1 Channel Differential Hall Rotational Speed Sensors. These sensors are ideal for use in applications where they may be exposed to harsh environmental conditions. Examples of applications include mobile operating machines, electric drives and hydraulic drives. They feature an air gap of 3.5mm at module 2 and a frequency range from 0.1Hz to 20 kHz. Degrees of protection vary across the range but include IP65/ IP67/ IP69K and IP6K9K. Please visit our website to view the range in full and/ or to download our brochure of sensors.
2-Channel Hall Sensors with PWM signals detect rotational speed and direction at the same time. These types of sensors are commonly used for applications including mobile operating machines, electric drives and hydraulic drives. They feature a maximum air gap of 4mm and a frequency range of 12 kHz forward/ 6kHz reverse. We offer two sensors in this range: 2-Channel Hall PWM FE Rotational Speed Sensor and 2-Channel Hall PWM FK Rotational Speed Sensors.

We are pleased to present the Digital Hand-Tachometer Redpoint. This fantastic measuring device is used for proximity measurement of rotational speed and can measure distances up to 600mm. Its beam of light focuses on a thin sticker which is attached to the object and the beam reflects at the speed of rotation. Results are displayed immediately on the 5-digit LCD screen. The redpoint can be used for recording speeds of engines, turbines, pumps, mixers and more. To find out more about this fantastic digital device, please head over to our website where you can view our Youtube tutorial.
Our selection of Rotaro, digital hand-tachometers use both contact and contactless operation and can be used to measure length, velocity and speed. The optical or non-contactless method uses a beam of light to measure whilst the contact or mechanical method utilises probes. It should be noted that we can also offer specialised adaptors which work in conjunction with our hand-tachometers in order to provide further functionalities. More information can be found on our website.
Alongside our digital hand-tachometers, we are pleased to supply two high-quality mechanical tachometers. These units are used to measure RPM and surface speed and are often a preferred choice of measuring device due to their large, easy-to-read dials. Users can choose between our standard model and our ATEX model which has been htm modified and certified for use in ATEX zones 1 and 2. Both hand-tachometers feature a memory button which records the last recording until it is reset and a red 3-position range selector switch which allows the highest possible resolution and provides a multiplier of 1x, 10x and 100x measured value display.
The mechanical hand-tachometer htm has been expertly designed and created to measure RPM and surface speed. This tough and robust unit does not require batteries and features a memory button which records the last recording until it is manually reset. It also features a 3-position range selector switch to provide the highest possible resolution for each application. This hand-held device is easy to use and features a rubber shell for extra protection and improved grip. With its large, easy-to-read display, this mechanical hand-tachometer is often a preferred choice of measuring device for applications in a range of industries.
The Atex approved mechanical hand-tachmoter can be used to measure RPM and surface speed. Safety is incredibly important, especially when activities need to be carried out in environments with potentially explosive atmospheres. This has been taken into account when designing this range of tachometers. They benefit from an innovative design modification allowing them to be used in ATEX zones without affecting any of their other features. It should also be pointed out that our mechanical hand-tachometers are extremely accurate, with a measuring range of 0 ... 50,000 RPM and a measuring accuracy of ±0.5 %. The unit itself is manufactured from ABS plastic and is compact and durable with an ergonomic feel.
Much more information can be found online on our website, including a comprehensive video covering all aspects of the device.
RheinTacho supplies top of the range rotational speed monitors. These programmable units monitor the motion of machines and systems.
