We have combined all the features of our hand held LED stroboscopes together with Ultra Violet 385nm wavelength LEDS. It includes a full function laser tachometer for performing non contact speed checks of rotating equipment. The Nova Pro UV light has a lamp mode for continuous on inspection. The light source is made up of twelve LED’s 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 operation is also possible with the optional AC adapter.

It includes the integral laser module for tachometer mode or strobe trigger mode and adds a high contrast inverse blue LCD display with back light and touch sensitive number pad for setting flash rates quickly, ultra high intensity LED’s for even more light output, memory for up to 10 preset flash rates, input and output jacks for external sensors or pulse repeater output. Features include phase delaytime delay and virtual slow motion. 

Stand-Alone Strobe includes: Strobe, integral laser module with remote dock, (1) standard Li-ion battery pack, battery charging station with interchangeable wall plugs, NIST calibration certificate and operation manual.

Strobe Kit includes: Strobe, integral laser module with remote dock, (2) standard Li-ion battery packs, battery charging station with interchangeable wall plugs, Deluxe foam lined water tight case, NIST calibration certificate and operation manual.
