Tachometer and thermometer
« on: June 16, 2018, 09:25:21 AM »

just purchased a non-contact thermometer and a n c tachometer from Amazon for 20 quid the pair. Havenít checked the tacho yet but thermometer seems fine, tested it against a normal digital thermometer and readings are identical. I will be using both to evaluate a new brushless setup. The thermometer is worth having just for checking temperature of sleeping grandchild, when not well, just point and there is the reading.
Some of these Chinese gadgets appear to be junk but I was very pleasantly surprised by these two items.

Couldn't agree more HG.......the accuracy or resolution in display being based on quartz/electronic software is beyond comprenshion  :-))

Just keep the laser beam [both the digital tachometer & laser pyrometer] away form any prying eyes.....the digital pyrometer is also great in the kitchen for checking processes & simple things like understanding if the oil is 145 degrees or 150 degrees before you put the chippies in  O0
