We have combined all the features of our handheld LED stroboscopes with a full function laser tachometer to create a compact, ergonomic, and extremely powerful two-in-one predictive maintenance tool. The twelve (12) LEDs stroboscope light source is extraordinarily bright yet extremely efficient allowing cool, continuous operation and long battery life (up to 9.5 hours on a single charge); continuous operation is also possible with the optional AC adapter.

The Nova-Pro 100 is designed for simple stroboscopic stop motion inspection and RPM measurement applications. The patented integral laser module is an optional item that can be added to make the 100 a full-featured tachometer.

The Nova-Pro 300 has all the features of the 100 and includes the patented integral laser module for tachometer mode or strobe trigger mode plus adds a high-contrast inverse blue LCD display with backlight and touch-sensitive number pad for setting flash rates quickly. Other features include: ultra-high intensity LEDs for more light output, memory for up to 10 preset flash rates, input/output jacks for external sensors or pulse repeater output, and NIST calibration certificate.

The Nova-Pro 300 is available as a stand-alone battery powered or AC powered device. It can also be purchased in kit form which ships in a protective die-cut foam-lined carry case. Select the model (above) to view the contents and price of each available model.

Note: Integral optical sensor and flash trigger protected under US Patent 10,080,268.

Replacing Xenon with a LED Strobe

This case study explores how to increase production, quality, and sustainable goals in a converter application.

A converter was looking to replace an older Xenon bulb stroboscope on their Mark Andy 4150 press. After discussing the application, target distance and width of the Web I suggested the Monarch Instrument illumiNova® 200 Fixed Mount Strobe designed for a 24″ web width with 216 LEDs and collimating spot lenses. We encourage customers to test-drive our new illumiNova™ with Monarch’s strobe demo program and after a little paperwork, we shipped an illumiNova™ 200 for them to try out.

Using Nova-Pro LED for Predictive Maintenance

Monarch’s Nova-Pro LED Stroboscope/Tachometer is the right tool to stay ahead of costly problems.

Predictive maintenance programs continue to rise in popularity as corporations, large and small, strive to increase production efficiency, reduce process downtime and operating costs, and increase overall quality and profitability.

Practical applications for White and UV strobes in the Printing and Converting Industries.

As Flexographic speeds increase and the use of hybrid substrates in packaging are added, on-press strobe inspections are becoming mandatory to meet the demand. Using a pure white strobe flash, allows the QC inspector to virtually stop motion on a position on the press to determine its color quality, ink density, tint screens, and registration.

How to use a Stroboscope and Laser Tachometer for speed measurement

Using the Nova-Pro® integrated laser tachometer to synchronize strobe flash rate for instant stop motion. Benefits of using an optical tachometer with a strobe.

Nova-Pro® has Patented laser sychronization technology

Demonstration of advanced features on Nova-Pro® LED stroboscopes. Phase Delay, Time Delay, and Virtual RPM. See how the Nova-Pro's Patented Technology greatly simplifies speed and stop motion inspection in all of your moving processes and machinery.

Using the Monarch Strobe REPEAT and JOG/DELAY Feature for Printing and Converting

Understanding the Repeat and Jog/Delay features for Narrow Web and Label Flexographic Printing. Viewing individual repeat patterns with a strobe when using different repeat quantities on the same sheet. How to view the first, second, and consecutive label impressions in a row using the Jog/Delay feature.

Nova-Pro® LED Stroboscope/Laser Tachometer is two tools in one

The Nova-Pro® has an integral laser sensor included with the 300, and 500 models (optional on the 100). This simple proprietary module can be installed in seconds or used in the remote dock for speed measurement or flash synchronization.

Stroboscopes and Vibration Analysis

Using a Nova-Pro® handheld stroboscope from Monarch Instrument, V-TEK Associates demonstrates resonant frequencies inherent in machine vibration analysis. By matching the rotation frequency of the MVAT6-01 the strobe flashing virtually slows or stops motion of the rotor. This also captures the cantilever beam which is moving in resonant harmonics with the machine vibration.

Nova-Pro® UV LED Stroboscopes used for inspection of invisible inks

Ultraviolet (UV) LED illuminating stroboscopes are used to inspect UV sensitive security markings made with 'invisible inks' in many Printing and Converting processes such as Pharmaceutical, Flexible Packaging, Currency, Security Documents and also for Non-destructive Testing (NDT) when combined with fluorescing penetrants.
