The X-Strobe Series is an advanced machine vision illumination strobe system. It’s high output, long life, small size and superior reliability combine to make the X-Series the most versatile fiber optic stroboscopes available. These products incorporate the latest innovations in Xenon flashlamp technology, Power supply engineering, trigger performance and reflector design while meeting CE requirements.
The Xenon Flashlamp produces intense pulses of radiant energy covering the ultraviolet (UV), visible (VIS) and near infrared (NIR). When coupled to a CCD/CID camera system, the strobe “freezes motion” which eliminates blur and enhances image quality. Several variations of the X-Strobe Series are available; each optimized for maximum light output at a specific flash rate. External signal inputs allow you to further customize the stroboscope to your unique application.
High intensity bright white light
Small overall size
Long Life Flash lamp
Improved flash stability
Universal AC input (100-240 VAC)
Inputs for external trigger and intensity control
Easy lamp replacement
The X-Series is designed to the latest European CE directives for Safety and Emission. The universal AC power supply recognizes AC voltages from 100V to 240V with line frequencies from 50 – 60 Hz. The design of the xenon flashlamp assembly provides quick and easy lamp replacement. Various nosepieces and adapters are available for sizes up to 1″ in diameter.
