The Monarch Nova-Strobe stroboscope is the industry standard for high intensity multi-function portable stroboscopes. Nova-Strobes feature Xenon strobes that are 20% brighter than competitors models while maintaining an outstanding accuracy of ±0.002% of setting (±1 least significant digit). The Monarch Instrument Nova-Strobe stroboscope is ultra portable, weighing under 2 pounds.

Monarch Nova-Strobe DBX Stroboscope

A deluxe battery powered unit with a range of 30 to 20,000 flashes per minute. Flash rates are easily adjusted to fractional RPM by a coarse / fine control knob while providing x2 and ÷2 capability for distinguishing actual RPM from harmonic frequencies. The Monarch Instrument Nova-Strobe DBX stroboscope also provides internal phase shifting to keep the target precisely in view. Individual TTL compatible input and output jacks are provided for ‘daisy chaining' of multiple strobes, triggering from an external source, or providing a trigger signal to external equipment. Tachometer readings from 5 to 250,000 RPM can be made using external sensors. In addition, the Monarch Instrument DBX stroboscope includes a memory with which 6 flash rates can be pre-set by users for repetitive measurements and storage of the last flash rate measured are included. The Monarch Instrument Nova-Strobe DBX stroboscope includes a NIST traceable certificate of calibration.

Monarch Nova-Strobe DAX Stroboscope

The Monarch Instrument Nova-Strobe DAX Stroboscope has the same specifications as the DBX but in a AC powered version.

Monarch Nova-Strobe BBX Stroboscope

The lightweight & comfortable-to-hold Monarch Instrument Nova-Strobe BBX stroboscope is a low cost, general purpose unit. The BBX is simple to operate: just point and shoot. The Monarch Instrument Nova-Strobe BBX stroboscope has a range of 30 to 10,000 flashes per minute and x2 and ÷2 buttons allow for differentiating true RPM from harmonics. A large dual line digital LCD it easy to adjust and read. The flash rate adjustment is quickly made with the tactile tuning knob.

Monarch Nova-Strobe BAX Stroboscope

The Monarch Instrument Nova-Strobe BAX stroboscope has the same specifications as the BBX but in a AC powered version.

All models of the Monarch Instrument Nova-Strobe stroboscope are available as meter only (re-chargers are included with battery powered models) or as kits (includes spare lamps as well as a hard plastic carrying case).
