magnetic speed pickup question

Subject: magnetic speed pickup question

South Carolina
I am programming a Red Lion control digital readout to display speed of a shaft or really the speed of a conveyor driven by that shaft
I am off by a factor of 2- speed shows on display twice as fast as it really is
The magnetic pickup is on a 40 tooth sprocket
Through trail and error and calculations I found if I program for 80 pulses per revolution speed is correct
Is it possible that this magnetic pickup puts out 2 pulses per tooth? or do I have an error somewhere else?
