Shimpo DT-205LR and Shimpo DT-207LR 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.

A bright red laser mark provides for NON-CONTACT RPM measurements from 1 inch to 20 feet permitting a wider margin of safety. RPM measurements can now be made through the smallest of site glasses and openings, eliminating the need to remove machine covers and shields, saving time and money.  

Which model should I buy?


  • Shimpo DT-205LR is the LCD version is to be used in sunlight and provides longest battery life
  • Shimpo DT-207LR is the LED version will work better in poorly lit or dark environments but will drain battery faster
  • The DT-205LR-S12 & DT-207LR-S12 models includes a 12" circumference measuring wheel that offers safer and easier surface speed measurement


Offering unprecedented confidence via new improvements, the SHIMPO DT-205LR/DT-207LR 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 photo-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" or 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 contact only digital tachometers please see the Shimpo DT-105A/DT-107A models.

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-205LR/DT-207LR Contact & Non-Contact 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-205LR/DT-207LR or a different model) and provide an ISO, NIST traceable calibration certificate. Please contact our metrology lab for more info.
