The Murphy Digital Tachometer and Hourmeter MTH6-1 is a microprocessor-based type with a built-in overspeed switch. It measures speed and running hours and can give an alarm or shut down the engine on overspeed. The MTH6 case is polycarbonat  and its dial measures 3-1/2 inches (89 mm) in diameter.

RPM data for the tachometer and overspeed switch is supplied by a magnetic pickup or battery charging alternator. The magnetic pickup is installed into the flywheel housing of an internal combustion engine. The starter ring gear acts upon the magnetic pickup to generate a voltage pulse each time a gear tooth passes the end of the sensor.
