himpo DT-105A and Shimpo DT-107A are handheld, battery operated digital tachometers. They can accurately measure rotational/linear/surface speeds and total length. Tachometer's readings can be displayed in a wide variety of engineering units with the help of a built-in selector switch.

Which model should I buy?


  • Shimpo DT-105A is the LCD version, to be used in sunlight and provides longest battery life
  • Shimpo DT-107A is the LED version that will work better in poorly lit or dark environments but will drain battery faster
  • The DT-105A-S12 & DT-107A-S12 models includes a 12" circumference measuring wheel that offers safer and easier surface speed measurement
  • for higher measuring range, non-contact speed measurements consider Shimpo's DT-205LR and DT-207LR; these instruments also feature a contact adapter, conveniently allowing both non-contact and contact measurements 


Offering unprecedented confidence via new improvements, the SHIMPO DT-105A/DT-107A battery-operated tachometers still feature the same rugged, high quality components that have made them the benchmark in the industry. These user-friendly, value-packed contact tachometers feature expanded memory storage, added length functions, and many standard accessories. 

All Shimpo tachometer models are sold in Canada as a complete kit including 6"/12" circumference surface speed wheel, two cone tip adapters, funnel tip adapter, shaft extension, two AA batteries, user manual and a foam-fitted carrying case.

We are Shimpo's speed instruments canadian distributor and carry the line of photo/contact digital tachometers. For higher speeds you can use the DT-205L/DT-207L non-contact laser tachometers from SHIMPO or Shimana's laser or photo-contact tach.

These SHIMPO digital tachometers are sold in Canada by DMM. We also calibrate tachometers to ISO 17025 in our Brampton (Great Toronto Area, Ontario) based accredited lab.

Need to have this new Shimpo DT-105A/DT-107A Contact Handheld Tachometer calibrated? While this gauge has passed a quality control check, having a calibration certificate for tachometers might be required by your quality control system. Digital Measurement Metrology (owner of ProcessInstruments.ca) is a canadian metrology company with more than 25 years of experience. Our Brampton, Ontario based calibration lab has one of the most comprehensive ISO 17025 accredited calibration scope in Canada.

Do you have an old Shimpo gauge to be calibrated? We might be able to calibrate Shimpo tachometers (Shimpo DT-105A/DT-107A or a different model) and provide an ISO, NIST traceable calibration certificate. Please contact our metrology lab for more info.
