Vibration Stroboscope Vibration Strobe from Monarch Instrument

strobe_kit.jpg (5380 bytes) The Vibration-Strobe Kit has an operating range of 100 to 12,000 flashes per minute. It also has true external Phase Shifting throughout the complete operating range.

The Vibration-Strobe operates with internal rechargeable batteries. This unit has a unique "tracking filter" ideal for vibration analysis. It has proven compatibility with numerous vibration data collectors.

The Vibration-Strobe will accept the input from your data collector and provide a TTL output to the external input of your data collector. This will provide a strobe-firing from the accelerometer.

If you require slow-motion studies, balancing, relative phase analysis or synchronous time averaging, this strobe is ideally suited for your application.


  • Flash rates from 100 to 12,000 flashes per minute, adjustable in 1 FPM increments. The all digital, crystal controlled microprocessor keeps readings rock steady.
  • VB 115 Kit (shown above)  includes carry case, spare lamp and 3 hour fast charger along with cable to specified vibration data collector. (consult factory)
  • Selectable tracking filter allows for solid phase reading.
  • Individual in and output TTL jacks for provides signal to remote data collector from accelerometer.
  • Relative Phase Adjustment is user selectable allows reference mark to positioned at a convenient visual location.
  • Backlit alphanumeric LCD display shows flash rate in flashes per minute.
