A tachometer is a device used for measuring rotational speed of a shaft and converting it into a voltage so that it can be measured. By measuring the voltage produced by a tachometer, one can determine the rotational speed. The purpose of tach feedback is to improve the motor’s regulation under varying speed and load conditions.
