Tachometer: Quiz


Question 1: Slotted-disk devices are typical sensors used in odometer systems for rail vehicles, such as are required for train protection systems — notably the ________.
Centralized traffic controlPositive train controlChinese Train Control SystemEuropean Train Control System

Question 2: In vehicles such as tractors and trucks, the tachometer often has other markings, usually a green arc showing the speed range in which the engine produces maximum ________, which is of prime interest to operators of such vehicles.
Angular momentumTorqueForceEnergy

Question 3: This effect is called a wow-and-flutter, and a modern, tachometer-regulated ________ has a wow-and-flutter of 0.07%.
Gramophone recordCompact CassetteCassette deckReel-to-reel audio tape recording

Question 4: Tachometers driven by a rotating cable from a drive unit fitted to the engine (usually on the ________) also exist - usually on simple diesel-engined machinery with basic or no electrical systems.
Spark plugOil pump (internal combustion engine)Manifold (automotive)Camshaft

Question 5: On recent EMS found on modern vehicles, the signal for the tachometer is usually generated from an ECU which derives the information from either the crankshaft or ________ speed sensor.
CamshaftManifold (automotive)Oil pump (internal combustion engine)Spark plug

Question 6: This scale is only accurate in a certain ________, but since many tractors only have one gear that is practical for use on-road, this is sufficient.
