(FV-1500 高速F/Vコンバ-タ)



FV-1500 High-speed F/V Converter is a frequency-to-voltage (current) converter that converts frequency signal proportional to rotation speed, moving speed, etc. into voltage signal.


The FV-1500 is designed to accommodate the needs of high speed rotation measurement including rotating motors used in HV/EHV production lines etc. It also contributes to measure rising characteristics, very small fluctuation in steady rotation, and transient phenomena of flow speed with fast response.


  • Wide frequency range : 0.2 Hz to 320 kHz
  • High-speed response : 1 cycle + 3.5 µs
  • Rapid deceleration follow-up function enables practical signal output even when the frequency brings about a sharp drop.
  • Automatic center frequency follow-up function can close up transient fluctuation component (option).
  • Provided forward/reverse output by rotation direction recognition using two-phase signal input.
  • Comparator output useful for alarm system(option)

Typical applications

Rising characteristics of motor

Rotation performance of rotating devices

Rotation fluctuation measurement of engines or motors

Rotation performance test by applying excessive load

What is Rapid deceleration follow-up function (Estimating calculation function) ?

Output signal (speed analog) results in gradual reduction to stop when succeeding input signal of rotating device is suddenly decreased. The pulse interval is calculated every signal input. If no-signal period lasts longer than the previous pulse interval, this function enables the rotation output to be in gradual decline.

    Follow-up function ON
    Analog output will be 0 when the no-signal period lasts longer than 1.5 to 16 times of the last signal pulse interval.

    Follow-up function OFF
    Analog output will be 0 after that the minimum measurement frequency (0.2 Hz) is retained from the time input signal is 0 (OFF) for a while.
