Large engines

Large engines are used to power ships, as static power generation solutions in power stations and even as emergency generators.

To meet each and every requirement posed by such engines, including:

  • Permanent operability
  • Low repair and maintenance costs
  • Optimal efficiency
  • Reliability
  • Extended durability
  • Low fuel consumption

measuring and monitoring speed is a particular priority.

For decades, RHEINTACHO speed sensors, rotary encoders and monitoring solutions have delivered optimal solutions in this field and outlasted their forecast service life many times over.

A number of the products have also been inspected and approved by Germanischer Lloyd.



Task: The engine speed of large diesel engines must be kept within an ideal engine-specific range. Speed monitoring is used as a secondary safety circuit.
