FREE: Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

The stroboscope’s phase-shift feature offers the capability to advance or retard flash timing without changing the flash rate, which allows for motion to be “frozen” at the exact position required for inspection. A bright flash rate up to 12,500 flashes per minute (FPM) ideally illuminates an application at a distance to cover a wide viewing area and suit a wide range of applications.

Among other features, the device’s flash rate can be adjusted easily and quickly using the variable dial rate and the required flash speed can be reached within seconds. The stroboscope benefits from a compact design for handheld operation and integrates an easy-to-read and user-friendly LCD display.

The stroboscope utilizes a rechargeable battery with long running time per charge (up to 2.5 hours) and includes a universal AC adaptor for use worldwide. The device is supplied in a carrying case for protection and portability. A mounting thread on the underside allows mounting on a tripod for stability and added ease of use. SKF also now offers the advanced TKRS 20, which includes all the features of the TKRS 10 plus higher flash rate capabilities (300,000 FPM) and extended battery run time (12 hours).
