A portable digital stroboscope for general laboratory use, such as speed measurement and motion studies. It emits a white light flash from a high efficiency LED solid-state light source on the front of the unit. The rear panel holds the stroboscope controls and a liquid crystal display.
The stroboscope has two modes of operation: internal oscillator and external trigger.
The internal oscillator produces a continuous flash over two frequency ranges. The external trigger allows another frequency generating device to control the flash rate.
In addition, the stroboscope can be used as a strobe tachometer to measure speed instead of using a laser tachometer. Using a stroboscope you can “stop” the shaft down to 30 RPM (FPM).
