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.
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.
Tachometer records figure skater spinning RPM for Guinness World Record.
