SE-2500A is a non-contact handheld tachometer designed for gasoline engine measurement. Detection, measurement, and display parts are all in one unit and batteries are built in the unit. Moving the detector (head of the SE-2500A) close to an ignition coil can measure rotation speed at the unit of 1 r/min or 0.01 r/s. Up to 20 measurement data can be stored in the internal memory that is convenient for later checking.

Both analog (able to switch over to monitor output) and pulse outputs are provided as standard. Analog output signal can be used for the data recording by recording device. Monitor output is used for checking sensor waveform or input signal of FFT Analyzer. Pulse output signal is used for tracking analysis signal for FFT Analyzer.

* IP-2800 External sensor (discontinued) is not provided as standard.

External detector (option)



  • Easy and safe measurement by non-contact measurement method

  • Accurate rotation speed measurement by the unit of 1 r/min or 0.01 r/s
  • Easy to identify the displayed value with large LCD with backlight even when the surrounding is dark
  • Up to 20 data can be stored by memory function
  • Analog and Pulse outputs are provided as standard
  • Analog output 0 to 1 V/0 to F.S (F.S. : can be set optionally), 10-bit D/A conversion
    Pulse output Hi : +4.5V or more, Lo : +0.5V or less

    Rotation speed of 4-cilinder diesel engine can be measured with the VP-201/1210 (optional detector) *

    * It may not be measured depending on an engine.
