Battery-powered digital stroboscope with xenon flash tube and adjustable flash rate is designed for motion analysis, preventive maintenance, printing inspection, harmonics analysis, and speed measurement of repetitive motion
Flash rate range of 30 to 10,000 flashes per minute (FPM) and built-in multiply-by-2 and divide-by-2 functionality provides still images and verification of speed measurement
Xenon flash tube with 8 to 20 microsecond flash duration provides crisp images in brightly lit areas
Internal phase shift allows the target to be jogged clockwise or counterclockwise in 5 degree increments
Internal NiMH batteries with universal 115/230V AC battery charger and continuous duty cycle provide continuous use over the life of the battery
The Monarch 6206-012 Nova-Strobe battery-powered digital stroboscope has a xenon flash tube, a 30 to 10,000 flashes per minute (FPM) range, internal phase shifting, and continuous duty cycle. It is designed for motion analysis, preventive maintenance, printing inspection, harmonics analysis, and speed measurement of repetitive motion. The xenon flash tube has an auto-adjustable 8 to 20 microsecond flash duration to provide crisp images in brightly lit areas. Xenon flash tubes have brighter light output and a shorter flash duration than LED lights. Bright light output is required for quality images in brightly lit areas, and shorter flash durations provide sharper images, especially at high rates of speed. The stroboscope has a flash rate range of 30 to 10,000 FPM and a flash rate accuracy of 0.002% of setting or + or - least significant digit/0.01 for use in slow-to-medium speed applications. Built-in multiply-by-2 and divide-by-2 functionality allows the operator to distinguish true RPM from harmonics. Internal phase shift functionality allows the operator to manually rotate the target location clockwise or counterclockwise in 5 degree increments. The built-in 1/4" - 20 UNF (Unified Fine) thread mount and continuous duty cycle provides continuous use over the life of the battery without the need for cool-down periods. The stroboscope includes a 115/230V AC universal battery charger with interchangeable wall plugs and instructions. Stroboscopes are used in a variety of settings including manufacturing, printing, education, and photography.

Stroboscopes evaluate the functionality of fast-moving rotational objects, such as belts, fan blades, and other machine parts. They are used in industries such as manufacturing, entertainment, high-speed printing, wood and metal turning, and in education and research settings. Stroboscopes have a flashing light (strobe) that, when directed at a moving object, makes the object appear to be stopped or moving in slow motion. This enables the operator to evaluate machine performance without stopping the machine. Stroboscopes use either xenon flash tubes or LED light sources. The strobe is triggered either internally, which allows the operator to manually adjust the flash rate, or externally and automatically by a peripheral sensor. Multiply-by-2 (2/4 or 2X) and divide-by-2 (1/2) functionality enables the operator to verify the actual revolutions per minute (RPM) and to distinguish true RPM from harmonics. Phase shift adjusts the flash delay in degrees of a full rotation, and time delay adjusts the flash delay in seconds or fractions of a second. Input and output features enable the operator to use peripheral sensors to trigger flash rates, to perform tachometer operations, or to daisy-chain stroboscopes.
Monarch Instrument manufactures devices such as tachometers, stroboscopes, data loggers, and leak detectors. The company, founded in 1977 and headquartered in Amherst, NH, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard 9001:2008.
