Tachulator for spindle rpm

For what it’s worth, I use a Tachulator setup on two of my variable speed Atlas lathes (VFD and 3 phase motor). Works fine. Only issue is that occasionally the reflective tape gets oily or greasy and you loose the signal. Wipe off the reflective tape and back in business. The end of the sensor needs to be within 1/8” of the reflective tape.
