Phares T6 Panel Mount Tachometer

Phares T6 Panel Mount Tachometer

The Phares T6 Panel Mount Tachometer is a panel mount unit which monitors over speed, under speed, zero speed and at-speed conditions, utilizing a 4-digit display, 0-10V and 4-20mA output signals and 3 SPDT independent isolated relay outputs for speed condition status.

The Phares T6 Panel Mount Tachometer helps prevent equipment damage and material spoilage via prompt alert for stalled (zero speed) or under speed condition. It is particularly useful for monitoring under speed conditions as this often indicates an unexpected increase in load which may indicate that an unwanted stoppage is about to occur.

The T6 Panel Mount Tachometer uses frequency input from various types of sensors to determine the presence of motion or the lack thereof. When motion is either detected or reaches set point, the relay output(s) change state. They remain in this state until either under speed or zero speed condition occurs (depending upon application). The 0-10V and 4-20mA analog output signals are proportional to speed.

The T6 Panel Mount Tachometer features universal sensor input: NPN or PNP, 2 or 3 wire sensor.
