The Monarch Nova-Strobe LED family of rugged industrial stroboscopes provides an extremely bright, uniform light output for performing stop motion diagnostic inspection and RPM measurements. The twelve LED light source is extremely efficient which means long battery life and continuous cool operation. A wide operating range of 30-500,000 flashes per minute covers all applications.

The PBL has all the features of the DBL and adds external phase delay, time delay, and virtual RPM mode. The PBL will also run continuously, 24/7 with the power supply/recharger. The PBL is available stand-alone or as a kit.   

To see the latest in portable stroboscope technology, take a look at the Nova-Pro 500!

      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.
