DC Tachogenerators are used as speed monitoring devices, they convert rotating movement (RPM) into a proportional DC voltage with almost nil propagation delay and have no need for an energy supply.

They are most often used when mounted on to the back of a DC Motor and supply the connected DC drive with a voltage that is linear to speed typically expressed as a voltage against speed e.g. 40V/1000RPM.

Transdrive are the Main UK Distributor for Radio-Energie Tachogenerators, (Tachos), which was founded in 1928 to produce electric generators and convertors to supply power to radio telephonic and radio telegraphic receivers and transmitters; hence its name. In 1949 Radio-Energie started to produce Tachogenerators for industry and have produced a wide range of high quality and reliable units ever since.

These are no longer "UL" or "CSA" approved.
