At RHEINTACHO’S facility in Micklefield, Leeds, all products are manufactured, assembled, tested and calibrated according to ISO 9001:2018. RHEINTACHO UK is also the specialist in connection with spares and repairs of not only current products in its comprehensive portfolio, but also any instruments or devices which RHEINTACHO, Foundrometers or even products of an earlier acquisitions and any other brand no longer around.
RHEINTACHO UK is also the Centre of Competence in the RHEINTACHO Group which is responsible for ATEX products. Four years ago, the first product, a handheld mechanical tachometer (HTM) was Zone 2 approved for use in hazardous areas. One year later, approval was upgraded to Zone 1, so that it can be used in mining environments. RHEINTACHO’s ATEX product portfolio took a further step in the second half of 2016 when a stationary stroboscope solution was introduced. The strobe was put into a zone 2 enclosure enabling usage in hazardous environments. A typical application can be found in the printing industry.
In 2018, we also ATEX certified our complete product line of Eddy Current Tachometers including all available gearboxes. Now over 14 different solutions are available for many potential applications. Due to the company strategy of continuous growth and development, further ATEX developments are now in the pipeline with two different portable stroboscope families being re-engineered to fulfil Zone 2 application safety requirements and will most likely be available in 2019.
