Speedometers

A speedometer is a device in a vehicle that measures and displays the speed. The speedometer on a car, truck or motorcycle tells the driver how fast the vehicle is moving at any given time by instantaneously measuring the speed on the ground. It is thus essential for safety purposes on the roads.

Speedometers are located behind the steering wheel in most cars. Their location allows one to quickly read the speed at which they are travelling at. This helps one drive within the speed range of that area travelling at. Even on bicycles speedometers have the same function. They show the cycler how fast he or she is going, bicycle speedometers measure the time between the revolutions of the wheel.

Speedometers are read either in digital or analogue (having a needle and a dial) form. Speedometers reflect speed from zero to as high as 220 km per hour. Electronic speedometers receive data from a vehicle speed sensor whilst mechanical speedometers receive data from a drive cable. Tachometers are similar to speedometers in the sense that they measure the angular speed of a rotating shaft. Tachometers reflect engine speed in revolutions per minute (rpm).

Running a vehicle’s engine at very high RPM rates shortens the life of an engine so having a tachometer enables one to regulate the speed that they are travelling at thereby prolonging the life of an engine. To find out more about speedometers, browse our Yellow Pages listings.
