DT-361 Stroboscope

High-Intensity LED Stroboscope

The DT-361 High-Intensity LED Stroboscope is a velocity analyzing and measuring device that is ideal for machinery process inspection. The DT-361 Stroboscope is capable of flashing its LED lights in a synchronous frequency to the operating machinery, creating the illusion of viewing slowed or frozen images. Utilizing this phenomenon of slowing or stopping the motion with the adjusted flash rate of its LED lights, machine parts and processes may be inspected for defects, aiding in preventative maintenance programs. The DT-361’s LED technology extends operation due to the low energy requirement of the light diodes compared with xenon stroboscopes. Maintenance time and down time is reduced since there is no need to replace the bulb typical of xenon lit stroboscopes. The light output (Lux) of the LED array is far brighter than not only xenon powered stroboscopes, but all comparable LED stroboscopes on the market.

The DT-361 has a vibrant red LED display that is ideal for viewing in dark locations. The simple to use keypad plus rate adjustment dial aids in making quick changes of the flash rate to coincide with changes in the speed of your process. The dial allows fine-tune altering of the flash rate while the x2/÷2 keys enable large spanning over the entire flash range.

The DT-361 has the added feature of modifying the flash duration or on time which aids in picture clarity often necessary in printing processes. The phase shift function is ideal for rotating equipment where the user needs to change the focus on different blades, gears, or section of the machinery. The DT-361 is also capable of being synchronized with an input signal. To complete the system, the DT-361 has a power output to supply an input sensor if desired. The robust aluminum housing is NEMA4X (IP65) protected allowing usage in many harsh plant environments.

Typical applications for using the DT-361 is to determine speeds, inspect rotors, meshing gears, vibration diagnostic equipment, textile equipment, printing production lines, industrial fan inspection and many more.
