RD Speed Sensor System

The RD-series Tachometer Sensor System is and eddy current proximity probe system specifically designed for the challenges of measuring rotative speed a slow RPM levels.  The system is comprised of a probe (RS), extension cable (RL), and driver (RD) and provides a signal to track the speed or phase of rotating equipment.  The system can target either a once per revolution phase target or a multi-tooth gear for speed measurements.

The RD-series is ideal for applications that require monitoring a machine such as a large steam turbine generator for which the speed must be accurately measured during startup from slow turning gear speeds up to higher operating speeds.  The sensor body is available in a variety of mounting configurations and in total system lengths of 5m or 9m.
