Description

The illumiNova Fixed Mount LED Stroboscopic Inspection Systems are designed for continuous use in high-speed applications requiring crisp, clear, stop motion quality inspection. The extraordinarily bright LEDs provide an ultra uniform white spectrum light. Available in lengths from 6 inches to 8 feet and with 3 different lens options ensures light coverage for any job. The powerful onboard intuitive digital controller allows the user to quickly set flash rates, flash duration, brightness levels and many other advanced features. Flash rates can also be triggered remotely using machine-mounted sensors connected directly to illumiNova’s digital input or use the optional remote controller to extend the operating distance up to 100 feet.

Monarch Instrument has been manufacturing the world’s most popular portable stroboscopes for over 30 years. We know a thing or two about stop motion analysis.  Let us customize an illumiNova Fixed Mount Strobe System to meet your application's specific requirements.

The illumiNova logo and name is protected under USPTO registrations:
Trademark Serial Number 88200680 and Trademark Serial Number 88200556

Application Notes

Replacing a Xenon Strobe with an LED Strobe - How to increase Production, Quality, and Sustainability Goals in the Printing and Converting Industry.

A common issue we have found is making the transition from Xenon Strobe technology to the lower-cost, better illumination, and the advanced technologies that LED lighting offers web manufacturers and converters.

Stop-Motion Stroboscope and Speeding Arrow Pierces a Balloon

Carbon Fiber Archery Arrow captured in a video animation with the high-speed Monarch Instrument stroboscope and FASTEC camera. Illuminated by the strobes extremely short flash pulse widths and using 5000 frames per second, the 190 mile per hour (MPH) arrow can be viewed and stopped dead in its flight

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 press to determine its color quality, ink density, tint screens, and registration.

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.
