Series SMS-300 stroboscopes can either be hand-operated or mounted on a tripod, and can be used to observe fast repeated motions as well as to determine RPM or rate of machinery components. Not only continuous motions of materials, but also processes, which are normally impossible to observe due to their high rate, can be visualised.
The turning or oscillating machine part can be visualised as a stop-motion picture by adjusting the light flashes synchronously to the rate of the movement. With the multiplier/divider function, it is able to determine the actual RPM or frequency of the motion accurately. The phase shift function enables slow-motion effects and visual positioning of the observed component.
The instrument can be triggered by means of an external sensor (power supply for the sensor is provided by the stroboscope). The flashes can be delayed either in time or rotation angle.
