Sending Signal To Your Tacho — KUS Magnetic Pick-Ups

How Magnetic Pick-Ups Work:

Tachometers require a specific type of sender to acquire a signal. Magnetic pick-ups, also known as tacho sensors or mag pick-ups, connect to the gear box and uses magnetized fields to determine the rotational speed of gear teeth. Essentially just a coil wrapped around a magnetised probe, mag pick-ups work when other magnetised objects, such as gear teeth, pass through the probe’s magnetic field. Flux density of this field is then modulated, inducing the AC voltage in the coil, completing the voltage cycle and sending the signal to your tacho.

The KUS Range:

The KUS range of Magnetic Pick-ups have a wide-range of applications as they are a general purpose tacho sensor. They provide an effective and accurate means of measuring the frequency of gear rotation.

Primary features include:

  • Stable signal output
  • Wide range of operational temperatures
  • Small size and simple assembly process

Simply mount the mag pick-up in close proximity to the teeth of the rotational gear and screw in the locking nuts to secure it to the housing. With a protection ranking of IP65, the KUS range of magnetic pick-ups are effective in their use, simple to install and reliable in their performance.
