Product Overview: 

Description

This microprocessor-based digital tachometer and hourmeter with a built-in overspeed switch is highly accurate and dependable. It measures speed and running hours and can give an alarm or shut down the engine on overspeed.

The MTH6 case is polycarbonate, and its dial measures 3-1/2 in. (89 mm) in diameter.

RPM data for the tachometer and overspeed switch is supplied by a magnetic pickup or battery charging alternator. The magnetic pickup is installed into the flywheel housing of an internal combustion engine. The starter ring gear acts upon the magnetic pickup to generate a voltage pulse each time a gear tooth passes the end of the sensor.

Applications

  • Industrial Engines
  • Generators
  • Compressors
  • Oil Field Equipment
  • Marine Engines
  • Vehicles
  • Farm Equipment
  • Construction Equipment

Basic Operation

During normal operation, the MTH6 displays RPM. Its five-digit, liquid crystal display is updated every second. When the MTH6 is displaying hours and a speed signal is present, the far left digit and decimal point will flash indicating the hourmeter is operating.

The overspeed set point and running hours can be viewed by manipulating three membrane switches located on the MTH6 front panel.

When the overspeed set point is met an LED, also located on the front panel, lights.

Easy Calibration

The MTH6 calibration is simple. The operator enters the number of pulses per engine revolution and the overspeed set point value using the membrane-switches located on the front of the MTH6.
