Rev counter - Square Wave?

From CEM to VEM, from LED to lightbulb and more. If you have an electrical problem, like a broken info-centre, search for answers in this category. This is also the place to be when you expect the problem to be of an electrical nature...

Rev counter - Square Wave?

Post by suddy » Fri Jul 03, 2015 9:24 am

Hi All,

I've got some problems with my rev counter, so I've removed it, and I'd like to test it.

So, I *think* that accepts square-wave source, but I am looking for some more details - Voltage p-p and frequency range...

I've actually got different one in the car at the moment, but the dial face is the old-style font, might be easier to remove the needle - but can't see how without breaking it!

Kind Regards

Fingers (wash first!) under the complete needle, pull and at the same time turn anti clockwise. Ignore the protest, be brave.
