PLT200 is a digital, battery-powered portable optical tachometer, which operates up to 25 feet* from a reflective target using a Class 2 laser light source. The ergonomic design allows safe, direct line-of-sight viewing of both the target and the display at the same time while providing a non-slip rubber surface for single-hand operation.
The PLT200 is a 32-function Tachometer/Rate Meter, Totalizer/Counter, and Timer (stopwatch), programmable in both Imperial and Metric units. It includes two phone plug connectors, including an input for our optional Remote Contact Assembly (RCA) or remote sensors and a TTL compatible pulse output to trigger devices like vibration data collectors or stroboscopes. The kit is supplied complete with a Remote Contact Assembly including concave and convex tips and a 10 cm linear speed wheel, all in a latching carrying case. Sensors, 12- inch Contact Wheel, and input/output cable are optional.
*Performance subject to the intensity of ambient light irradiation.

Tachometer records figure skater spinning RPM for Guinness World Record.
The World Record was recorded and validated by the Guinness Book in 1992 when Natalia Kanounnikova set the record that lasted until 2015. The go-to choice of the Guinness World Records was the Monarch Instrument Digital Optical Tachometer PT99, as demonstrated in the NBC Today Show clip.
Tachometer validates high-speed CD drives and "exploding CD" problem - MythBuster episode
As a highly trusted instrument, we find ourselves in good hands once again and come to the aid of the infamous MythBusters as they try to prove conventional wisdom through science and technology. In this episode, the Monarch Instrument PT 100 Handheld Tachometer takes on exploding CDs as they attain a critical velocity of rotation and destruct into hundreds of shards traveling at over 700 MPH. Out to prove the premise of a 52X CD drive as being catastrophic for CDs and possibly harmful to humans, the MythBusters measure the speeds in their pathway to “mass destruction”.
PLT200 Tachometer provides critical precision necessary for 60 MPH test - MythBuster episode
As a highly trusted instrument, we find ourselves in good hands once again and come to the aid of the infamous MythBusters as they try to prove conventional wisdom through science and technology. In this episode, the Monarch Instrument PT200 solves the exacting timing issue between two objects traveling in opposite directions at 60 miles per hour. The hypothesis of the ‘myth’ requires meticulous timing and speed accuracies to ± 1% to be successful. The PT200 has an accuracy of ± 0.01% when using its reflective target, even in high ambient light conditions.
