Extech Instruments, a major supplier of test and measurement equipment for the industrial marketplace, announces its new 461880 vibration meter and combination laser tachometer. The 461880 multifunction meter is ideal for measuring acceleration, velocity and displacement, as well as RPM and linear surface speed. The 461880 features a large LCD that rotates the numerical readout 180° following the orientation of the meter. The 461880’s Vibration Meter features a remote vibration sensor with a magnetic adapter on 39” (1m) cable, a wide frequency range of 10Hz to 1kHz and RMS or Peak Value measurement modes. The product’s Manual/Auto store/recall function can store and display up to 1000 readings, the Data Hold function freezes the reading in the display, and Auto shut-off saves the product’s battery life.The 461880’s Tachometer component features a laser for greater distance, non-contact measurements up to 4.9ft (1.5m), and has the capability to store Last, Max and Min readings. The new Extech combination meter is ideal for QC and repairs of linear or rotating conveyance systems as well as noise, vibration, harshness (NVH) testing of industrial or mechanical components.The 461880 comes complete with a remote vibration sensor, magnetic mount, wheels for linear surface speed or RPM (cone tip and flat tip), reflective tape, 4 AA batteries, software with cable, and a hard carrying case.
