Overview / Design Principle:

Featuring rugged, mill duty construction, the durable RIM Tach® 6200 was designed for hostile environments. The mill duty, cast iron construction of the 6200 accepts stainless steel sensor modules with patented magnetoresistive technology. The outputs are available as either single or dual outputs and are completely isolated from one another. The modular design features extra severe duty bearings (1.875” OD) to ensure longer life under heavy loads.

The patented Magnetoresistive technology of the Rim Tach® 6200 is incorporated into a heavy duty, one piece sensor module, with encapsulated surface mount electronics. These advanced modules are immune to common mill contaminants (water, oil, grease, dirt, shock, and vibration) and overall harsh environments. This state-of-the- art technology allows for much higher resolutions providing resolutions up to 2048 pulses per revolution. With the addition of a RIM Tach® Shaft Grounding Brush, induced shaft currents “drain” away, preventing premature material weakening of large AC and DC motor bearings, and their consequent failure.

Standard mill duty latching connectors provide ease of installation. These sealed connectors are simple to wire by inserting the stripped conductor in the plug and tightening the screw terminals. There is no need to field solder or to struggle with a crimp pin. The unit easily mounts on a standard NEMA 56 C face (4.5”) and requires no gap adjustments. The sensor module is very easy to change, just remove four screws and slide the new sensor module in place.

Features and Benefits:

  • Rugged Mill Duty Construction
  • Easy Installation
  • Reliable Magnetoresistive sensor unaffected by common contaminants
  • Sensor modules for fast and easy field service


The RIM Tach® 6200 is specifically designed to meet the needs of process industries, providing the most reliable, mechanical, electrical, and environmental features available in digital tachometers today.
