DT-2100 Contact/Non-Contact Data Logging Tachometer


The Shimpo DT-2100 is the premium tachometer for engineers and maintenance professionals, the most highly advanced tachometer ever.

Providing an unequaled level of user flexibility, the DT-2100 is the premium tachometer for engineers and maintenance professionals. Aiding the diagnosis of the most difficult machinery measurements with its onboard data-logging, graphing and statistical analysis, the user can examine the results of their testing on site and determine if additional data is required. Data can be downloaded to the optional software to further analyze and diagnose system performance. If simplicity is required, the DT-2100 can accommodate with its selectable display styles allowing results to be viewed in standard numerical, chart, bar graph or gauge modes. Max., Min. and Ave. can be quickly scrolled through in any display mode for additional test feedback.

Data recording can be set for single point or continuous logging. Often the user may need to adjust the machinery during testing. Simply mount the DT-2100 on its tripod connection, select continuous logging and adjust machinery as necessary. After the test, you can easily review results on unit or download to the computer. Two people are no longer required to perform a test that one can now conveniently complete. The DT-2100 even allows multiple users to store their programmed settings. There is no need to spend time checking all settings to ensure the instrument is set up as desired.

The DT-2100 tachometer is 2 units in 1 with the included 6″ circumference contact adapter utilized in linear rate measurement. Most impressive, the DT-2100 provides convenient switching between non-contact and contact operation with its auto-detect function that instantly recognizes if contact adapter is installed. If the larger 12″ circumference wheel is desired for detecting finer resolution at higher speeds, simply select in the menu the appropriate wheel and the DT-2100 will properly calculate the sensed speeds.

The DT-2100 possesses many cutting-edge features. One feature that is unique to this instrument is the ability to calculate lengths remotely in non-contact laser operation. This feature adds a level of convenience and capability as often it is dangerous or not possible to take a reading by physical contact. PC software for the DT-2100 is available separately. The software provides the user the ability to program the tachometer to their requirements, as well as enables more refined analysis of the data.

Includes: 2 cone adapters, funnel adapter, 3½” extension shaft, carrying case, master wheel (6” cir.), 2 AA batteries, and contact adapter.
