The sensor has both digital pulse and analog outputs to provide non-contact reference points to balancing equipment or signals to a vibration analyzer. The sensor will track surface irregularities on rotating shafts and provide pulse outputs from reflective tape, contrasting colors, and keyways. The sensor is IP64 rated and is suitable for use in dusty damp environments. Includes ¼" tripod mounting bushing.

CSLS-NIST (6180-038-CAL) includes NIST Traceable Certificate of Calibration.
