Lightweight and bright with flash rates to 8,000 flashes per minute (FPM) these strobes are comfortable to hold and will operate continuously with no danger of overheating.The BB battery operated stroboscope weighs only 2.5 lbs. (1.2kg) and will run continuously for 1 hour on a single charge. A slow charger is included. Re-charge time is 14 hours. The BA stroboscope is AC mains powered (115 or 230 Vac) and weighs only 1.5 lbs. (0.72 kg).
Digital stroboscopes, or strobes are used to measure moving parts to provide consistent and exact data on speed, including stop-motion diagnostic inspection. Strobes are employed to make a cyclically moving object seem to be ‘slow-moving’ or even stationary. This is particularly useful for measuring the rotating speeds of motor shafts without contact or gauging the performance of fans, allowing the user to view the fan’s blades while in use.
