Glad you asked Bertram, Shimpo does make hand tachs, both contact and non-contact optical types. The Stroboscope is another type of tachometer used for determining rotating speeds or line speeds on a strip process. Currently Shimpo makes 8 different Stroboscopes and 9 different hand held Tachometers.
In Hand Tachometers that would be the DT-2100. It is a dual Non-Contact/Contact with accessories to do both. It has a Polycarbonate housing, very impact resistant, can measure up to 13.1′ (4M) away, up to 20 hours of operation on 2 AA batteries.
