Model 3800 Tachometer Tester

Description:

The King Nutronics Model 3800 is a compact, lightweight and quiet tachometer tester designed specifically for calibrating and troubleshooting aircraft and helicopter tachometer indicators and generator/alternator systems on the flight line and in the workshop. The Model 3800 exceeds current U.S. Navy specifications. The Model 3800 is accurate to within ± 0.02% of the set point value throughout its operating range of 1 through 6,500 RPM in 1 RPM increments. Calibration can be performed in the clockwise or counter-clockwise directions using RPM units, or as a percentage of full scale from 1% to 120 % (42 to 5040 RPM) in 1% increments for jet engine tachometers.
