Use of stroboscopes for speed measurement, preventive maintenance and verification of print defects

High brightness Xeon portable stroboscopes
High brightness Xeon portable stroboscopes

Measurement applications of print speed and quality in the printing industry, directly on the production line, without downtime or slowing down the process.

Applications of observation of repetitive movements for the determination of any assembly errors or preventive wear of moving parts.

Measurement visualization on easily readable display and controls designed for easy synchronization of the number of flashes per second with the process under observation.

Battery powered models for easy and easy transport or with mains power supply for fixed applications on production lines.

Stroboscopes are tools that allow you to observe and studying an object in motion, which can be rotary or oscillatory, as if it were stationary, as well as measure its speed.

The operating principle is based on the observation, in low light conditions, of the object in constant motion, illuminated by very short flashes of high intensity light.

When you observe a perfectly still image of the object in motion, it means that the flashing frequency of the stroboscope coincides with the speed of rotation or of the oscillatory motion. speed measurement itself, without any contact with the moving mechanism

The main element consists of a special xenon or LED lamp capable of emitting up to 5000 flashes per second, or 300000 per minute. This very high frequency value allows you to observe an object that cyclically moves, vibrates or rotates on its axis even at very high frequencies.

Distance and position measurements with industrial laser distance meters

LASER distance meters for industrial applications

Distance measurement without contact in total safety

Visible LASER with safety class 2 also suitable for measurements in the presence of an operator

Analog data output, RS232, RS422, Profinet, Profibus, Ethernet.

The LASER LDM family of distance meters consists of a series of optoelectronic distance measuring devices for industrial applications with analogue interface (from 4 mA to 20 mA) or digital (Ethernet, Profinet, Profibus, RS232, RS422).

The LDM series LASER distance meters are used for the precise measurement of distances from a few meters to three kilometers. The distance measurement represents aconsolidated application for laser technology.

These optical sensors use LASER (pulse or modulated) light to measure distances, heights, lengths, levels and positions in a non-contact process. To achieve this, all components work together in a perfectly coordinated overall system.

This system consists of a laser emitter, optical transmitters and receivers, photosensitive diodes and sophisticated electronics and algorithms for time measurement or phase measurement. We use different optoelectronic principles for our measuring devices, such as time of flight, phase comparison and back-mixing LASER pulse. These methods allow singles accurate measurements to the millimeter, and measuring ranges up to several hundred meters. Using our LASER distance meters is possible measure on natural surfaces or on special reflectors obtaining fast and precise results.

LASER distance meters work using visible or invisible optical radiation and are classified in accordance with current regulations in class 1 or 2 (safe classes for operation even without protective glasses).

The compact construction allows easy installation of the LASER distance meter even where space is limited or in industrial applications. All devices offer standard interfaces, analog or digital data output and parameterizable switching outputs. The family of LASER LDM distance meters is particularly used for applications in the industrial sector with analog (4 - 20 mA) or digital (Ethernet, Profinet, Profibus, RS232, RS422, SSI).
