Description

The Nova-Pro UV 365 and UV 385 are extremely powerful portable ultraviolet LED visual inspection instruments built on the all-new Nova-Pro stroboscope platform. Theses strobes are available with 365nm or 385nm wavelength LEDs and are optimized for inspection of UV inks on labels, security tags, anti-counterfeiting marks, UV coatings, and more.

We have included all the features of our Nova-Pro handheld LED stroboscopes including a full function laser tachometer to create a compact, ergonomic, and extremely powerful two-in-one predictive maintenance tool. The stroboscope light source consists of twelve ultraviolet LEDs which are extraordinarily bright yet extremely efficient allowing cool continuous operation and extremely long battery life (up to 19 hours on a single charge). Continuous 24/7 operation is possible with the optional AC adapter. The onboard laser sensor can be used as a full-featured tachometer for making quick RPM checks in the field or use it as a trigger for the stroboscope.

The Nova-Pro UV has a high contrast inverse blue LCD display with backlight and a touch-sensitive number pad (for setting flash rates quickly), memory for up to 10 preset flash rates, input and output jacks for external sensors or pulse repeater output, phase delay, time delay, and virtual slow motion. A NIST calibration certificate is also included. They are available stand-alone or in kit form.

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.

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.

Practical Applications for White and UV Strobes in the Printing and Converting Industries

As flexographic printing 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 ‘freeze-frame’ a position on 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.

What is Virtual RPM, Phase, and Time Delay with a Nova-Pro Stroboscope?

This how-to guide outlines the process steps and application reasons for using advanced strobe techniques for phase delay, time delay, and virtual RPM.

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 and how to view the first, second, and consecutive label impressions in a row using the Jog/Delay feature.

Cross Field Lighting Techniques with Strobes for Inspection

Examples of using stroboscopes for inspection with cross-field lighting for the human eye and camera vision systems. Providing unique visualizations for process manufacturing quality inspectors using a near-simultaneous sequence of combined illumination!

Turn Your Stroboscope into a Laser Sensor Tachometer

To get the most accurate speed measurements of rotating and reciprocating movements, consider an optical laser sensor for triggering the strobe, thereby taking the guesswork out of flash rates and providing dead-stop freeze-frame visualizations.

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 the motion of the rotor. This also captures the cantilever beam which is moving in resonant harmonics with the machine vibration.

Infrared Stroboscopic Technology and Life Sciences

The Nova-Pro Infrared Stroboscope is used with a FASTEC high-speed camera to capture ultra-slow motion, high-definition videos of insect and wildlife behavior in their real-world habitats. The infrared LEDs brightly illuminate the area being filmed without the disturbing effects of standard visible light.
