Nova-Strobe X Digital Series Portable Stroboscopes

The DAX offers powerful features for both diagnostic inspection and speed measurements. Lightweight and bright with flash rates to 20,000 flashes per minute and an accuracy of ±0.002% of setting, these strobes are comfortable to hold and easy to operate.   

The DAX AC-Powered Stroboscope (115 or 230 Vac) is designed for continuous cool operation and weighs only 1.5 lbs. (0.68 kg).

To see the latest in portable stroboscope technology, take a look at the Nova-Pro 300!

 


Features

  • Flash rates from 30 to 20,000 flashes per minute, adjustable in 0.1 step increments, the coarse/fine adjustment knob makes is quick and easy to set the exact flash rate you want; the all-digital controlled microprocessor keeps readings rock steady
  • Internal phase shifting allows the target to be jogged clockwise or counterclockwise in 5° increments
  • Times 2 (x2) and Divide by 2 (÷2) push buttons allow easy checking for actual RPM, harmonics and allow stop motion far beyond the 20,000 FPM limit
  • Store and recall up to 6-user selectable values; last measurement memory, even with the power off
  • Flash rate may be displayed in Flashes Per Minute (FPM) or Flashes per Second (Hz)
  • Individual input and output TTL jacks (1/8 inch phone) provides power to remote sensors and allows "daisy-chaining" of multiple strobes
  • Tachometer mode allows accurate speed measurement up to 250,000 RPM using external sensors
  • NIST Certificate of Calibration included

      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.

      Why do I need a portable strobe and which one is right for my stop motion inspection and speed applications?

      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.
