Keep your machinery in good working order with the Shimpo Heavy Duty Xenon Stroboscope [DT-311A]. Constructed with an extruded aluminum frame, this stroboscope will stand up to even the harshest conditions in the field. Stroboscopes provide the illusion of "stopped motion" so that you can view rotating or reciprocating objects to gather data or inspect for problems. A stroboscope can even be used in place of a digital tachometer to measure the rotational or reciprocating speed of an instrument.

The Shimpo Heavy Duty Xenon Stroboscope is microprocessor-controlled to deliver highly accurate performance, even in volatile environments. Its flash timer control maximizes the life of the xenon flash tube. While the manual flash controller knob, and rate multiplier/ divider buttons allows for quick and accurate flash rate adjustments.

The external trigger automatically synchronizes with other equipment, and the stroboscope can even power other strobes. The Shimpo Heavy Duty Xenon Stroboscope is a functional assessment tool for all your quality control needs.


  • Phase shift allows you to advance or turn back illusion of motion at a speed of 1 rotation in 6 seconds
  • Synchronous output controls other strobes in unison
  • Quickly adjust the flash rate with rate multiplier or divider controls
  • High accuracy (± 0.01% of reading) with every flash
  • Highly-polished reflectors ensure there are no viewing blind spots
  • Handle allows for handheld use or tripod mounting
