Can an Additional Sensor Module be Added to an Existing RIM Tach® NexGen Series?

If you have a standard, single output RIM Tach® NexGen encoder, it is possible to add another sensor to create a dual output unit. Each RIM Tach® NexGen encoder housing is designed with openings for two sensor modules, however, an additional module can be added to get a dual output. As long as it is within the same base PPR family, a different PPR can be added.

For example, the original output might be 512, while the additional module is 1024. The chart below breaks down each PPR family for your reference.
