LED stroboscope!

Fluke has introduced the Fluke® 820-2 LED Stroboscope, a simple, easy-to-use tool for investigating and observing potential mechanism failure on a variety of machinery without making physical contact with the machine. The rugged, compact strobe allows maintenance teams to identify the running speed of rotating equipment without stopping operation, and to perform stop motion diagnostics of parasitic oscillations, flaws, slippage, and unwanted distortions. It also enables teams to identify serial numbers and other markings on fast moving parts.

The Fluke 820-2 features a seven LED high-intensity array with uniform flash characteristics that allows for high flash rates from 30–300,000 flashes-per-minute, making it ideal for a wide variety of applications and industries. The solid-state LEDs have no filament, gases, hollow cavities, or glass to compromise the rugged construction.

The 820-2 has an efficient “x2 and ÷2” button system that allows the user to easily ramp up or down to the stable RPM zone as well as verify that the correct speed has been found by simply pushing each button once to perform the validation.

The adjustable flash duration feature of the Fluke 820-2 Stroboscope is ideal for applications with higher rpm or larger rotating objects with high surface speeds where objects may move during the brief period of a single flashing, resulting in a blurred image. Adjustable flash duration allows users to decrease the flash duration making the image appear sharper.
