AI- Tek Instruments Tachometers Tachtrol 10 Series

A.I. Tek Tachtrol 10 designed with severe industrial environments in mind, these units will provide reliable around-the-clock operation for years under adverse conditions. AI-Tek Instruments is a leader in manufacturing this type of instrument. Our prices reflect the design, quality, ruggedness, and engineering of the equipment.

What you really get with AI-Tek Instruments is a superb price-performance ratio. It may not initially be the least expensive equipment available; but, in the long run, the value of this equipment is that it will outperform and outlast others. The Tachometers Tachtrol 10 Series have been designed with all of the functions and durability embodied in the previous tachometer series as well as improvements to extend performance, accuracy, and function.

With the exception of the Tachtrol 20, both TACHPAK and Tachometers Tachtrol 10 Series now share a common processing platform. This commonality allows both to perform identical tachometry functions, streamlines programming, and minimizes the learning curve. The main physical difference between the two is the characteristic integrated display function found in all Tachometers Tachtrol 10 Series.
