Using a PLT200 Tachometer and Stroboscope for Roto-Flapper Peening 
EI Shot Peening Training
The use of a Monarch Instrument PLT 200 to establish the mandatory RPM for handheld Flapper Peening, and a handheld strobe for visualization of the tool while under load. With a required speed of 4200 RPM the PLT 200 and handheld strobe make it easy for the technician to set and maintain the necessary parameters for the peening tool.
Portable PLT200 Tachometer Unboxing (Spanish) - Industria Zamtsu
PLT200 is a portable tachometer, which operates up to 7.62 meters from a reflective tape using a laser light source. The ergonomic design allows observation of the direct safety line of sight of both the lens and the screen at the same time, while providing a non-slip rubber surface for one-handed operation.
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 wisdoms 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 wisdoms 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.
