The output of the GetLDS scan should contain the rpm reading in Hz. Normally the digit seen in the output is the digit "5" which results in 5 x 60 Hz = 300 rpm.
"360 output lines of LDS Scan Angle, Distance code in MM, normalized spot intensity,
and error code. Followed by 2 status variable pairs. Example:
AngleInDegrees,DistInMM,Intensity,ErrorCodeHEX 0,221,1400,0 1,223,1396,0

At the bottom of the output it does contain:
Running it a few times it varies between 4.99 (4 times) and 5.09 (once)
