Dual Rotor/Engine Tachometer

The Rotor-1 dual rotor / engine tachometer is a 3 1/8” instrument providing two universal RPM inputs that is primarily intended to measure rotor and engine RPM. Typical uses are rotor / engine RPM displays for helicopters and gyroplanes.

The Rotor-1 displays rotor and engine RPM in a digital readout as well as in a traditional scalable analog needle display. In addition the Rotor-1 provides a 24 entry automatic flight log that stores the duration of each of the last 24 flights. It also has a Hobbs meter (can be set to the current engine time) which is password protected, an engine running timer/flight timer and a programmable maintenance timer to schedule routine engine maintenance.

The Rotor-1 also features a programmable rotor and engine RPM low / high alarm as well as it records the maximum RPM values reached in permanent memory.
