Bombardier is using a new design of hand-held tachometer to measure diesel engine components during maintenance work at Crewe.

The Compact CT6 Tachometer has a magnetic probe to measure cooler group fan speeds without the need to remove safety covers. A piezo-electric quartz crystal pressure sensor strapped to a fuel injector pipe allows diesel engine speeds to be recorded. To take readings, staff plug the hand-held tachometer into a terminal in a safe area.
