Panel Tachometer DT-5TG


horz. bar



Accurately display RPM, surface speed, flow or production data scaled to any engineering units.

An additional mode displays the elapsed time required to travel a fixed distance at a pre-selected speed for baking and similar conveyor applications.

One or two Plug-In Modules can be added to enhance the DT-5TG capabilities to meet your application requirements.

User-set Hi and Lo limits, display update rate decimal point

Set-up data is easily entered via front panel keys and is not lost during power failures

Snap-in installation without tools, brackets or screws

Provides 12 V DC to power an external sensor

Plug-In Modules
for recording and data acquisition
Provides 0-10 V DC or 4-20 mA output proportional to the input frequency. A 12-bit D/A converter is used. Module...FV
for alarms and control systems
Provides 3 separate SPST relay contacts working in conjunction with the HI, GO & LO LED's on the front panel. Module...CP
