The aim of the project is to design a contactless speed sensing device (tachometer) for a Brushless DC (BLDC) motor. Traditional tachometers require a physical contact to the shaft of the motor to measure the speed. In certain applications, where it is not feasible to measure the speed for safety and technical reasons, it is possible for a contactless tachometer to take the readings from a certain distance.

This proposed system uses the IR transmitting and receiving technique. This is achieved by receiving IR rays from a reflecting spot on the shaft of the motor. Such arrangements can measure the rate at which the IR rays are getting reflected back. The project uses a microcontroller of 8051 family.

A pair of sensors (Transmitter and receiver) is used to develop a pulse for each reflection that sends an interrupt to the microcontroller. The timer of the controller calculates the speed by each pulse received in a particular time interval and displays the same. The microcontroller is interfaced with an LCD to display the speed.

The concept of the contact-less tachometer can be enhanced and implemented in the bikes, cars for speed measurement, avoiding the use of traditional analog speedometer.

Hardware Requirements
  • 8051 series Microcontroller
  • LCD
  • IR and Photo Diodes
  • Transformer
  • Diodes
  • Resistors
  • Capacitors
  • Voltage Regulator
  • LED
  • BLDC Fan
Software Requirements

Q & A
Q:  Can I use a large Induction motor or any other motor to sense the speed?
A:  Yes, any motor with a spot reflecting surface on the shaft can be used.
Q:  How can we sense the RPM reading?
A:  The RPM reading can be sensed by using IR sensors interfaced to the microcontroller.
Q:  What is the formula for calculating smoothing capacitor value?
A:  There is some approximated formula .Peak to peak ripple voltage = Load current in amps / (2*line frequency in hertz *capacitance in farads). But as rule of thumb for 1 A current 1000uF is best. Thus it is load dependent.

I came to know about edgefx through my friend. He suggested me to purchase project through online.
There was no time to do the self project. So, we decided to do buy online. I like most in edgefx is cost and discount.
Yes, the kit was delivered on time with right components
Yes the customer service has helped me in purchasing the project.
Everything is good for now.

I had been find this website from one of my seniors.
Because i likes your website and ready to take readymade kit.I like mostly the presentation of ppt slides.
i was purchased it through online.
I will suggest to my friends about this website.
