As was already the case with other types of motor vehicle, the latest procedures for measuring exhaust gas emissions from motorcycles require engine speed to be measured accurately. Unfortunately, the measurement systems commonly used on cars are generally unsuitable for motorcycles, which do not have an OBD socket and may not even have an alternator.

TEXA has developed RCM precisely to cater for engine speed measurements on motorcycles. The RCM rev counter is specially designed for motorcycle test applications and is the only tool of its kind capable of fully contact-free engine speed measurement, using only the electromagnetic waves generated by the arc across the spark plugs.

This signal is measured by a special spiral antenna and processed by an algorithm that calculates exact engine speed. All the tester needs to do is select the type of engine and place the RCM rev counter about 15 cm from the motorcycle, without having to remove any fairing parts.

Compared to other methods of engine speed measurement, like vibration based methods, contact-free measurement requires a technologically advanced tool but delivers far more effective and rapid results.

RCM is perfectly compatible with the latest motorcycle models that use integrated ignition coils, and comes complete with display, selection keypad and battery.

RCM incorporates a Bluetooth antenna and a serial port for the transmission of engine speed data to the PC running the emission test. RCM also has a USB port for connection to the battery charger.

RCM’s stylish design is another of its key features. RCM integrates both tool and base in a refined, modern casing, and has been put forward for inclusion in the ADI Design Index, the ultimate expression of Italian industrial design.

RCM is 100% made in Italy and conforms to ISO TS 16949, the rigorous standard required of original equipment suppliers to the automotive industry.
