Monarch Celebrates 45 Years in Manufacturing



Monarch International, Inc. is launched!
Monarch started as a distribution company selling a diverse range of imported instrumentation.

Monarch transitions from importing to manufacturing, continuing to push the tachometer technology with new products.

Monarch Instrument is established!
In 1982, the Monarch Instrument Division was established to manufacture and market the first microprocessor-based portable tachometer… TACH-IV, the Digital Optical Tachometer.

Sensors are added to the product offerings, first as an accessory then as a standalone product.

Along with additional tachometer products, Monarch expands into stroboscopes with the introduction of the Nova-Strobe series, followed by Machine Vision Stroboscopes in the early 1990s. 

Data-Chart 1200!
In late 1992, Monarch introduces the Data-Chart 1200, the first Paperless Recorder/Data Acquisition System.

More Paperless Recorders are added to the Data-Chart family.

Examiner 1000 Vibration Meter hits the market!
