Default Digital Tach and PSU

Just got our on-line video going Here.

The video explains all the operating modes and requirements for installing the sensor for the RoadRunner Tach.

Picked up my Falcon and RoadRunner last night. I think I'm going to have to get creative with the mounting of the magnet and pickup. There's not enough space between the plinth and platter on my xPression III turntable to mount according to instructions. The inner area of the platter is recessed so maybe i can mount things further inside the platter. That means I'll need to have make sure there's enough space to run the cable between the platter and plinth.

Will report back.

Sure will. Probably this weekend. Just haven't had much time this week to tinker.

So I was able to get the Roadrunner installed without too much trouble. I ran the sensor wire up through the motor housing and through the plinth. I then stacked up some 3m double sided tape (3 layers) to the the sensor enough height to read the magnet mounted on the inside of the recessed center area of the platter.

The plastic around the L-shaped miniplug that connects to the sensor needed a little shaving down that it didn't hit the under side of the platter.

My system is very modest compared to those that are showcased on the Phoenix Engineering website but it suits my purposes and I think it sounds great.

Cheers,
Scott

Nice looking system and great pics. Would it have been possible to mount the magnet/sensor to the subplatter?

Thanks for the compliments. So, yeah, I think there is enough room under the subplatter. Actually, I hadn't even thought about mounting it there. Do you think there would be benefits to doing so? I just figured getting it as close the edge of the platter would be best...

Thanks,
Scott

In theory, the larger the diameter the smaller the triggering error so the more consistent the reading of the tach should be, but I have not measured this to see how much difference (if any) it makes. I have had users who did mount the magnet to the subplatter (see review on page 1 of this thread by Big Kahona) as a matter of convenience or preference and it seemed to work just fine.
