Monarch Nova-Pro® 500 LED Stroboscope/Tachometer (Kit)

The Nova-Pro 500 is designed for simple stroboscopic stop motion inspection and RPM measurement applications. The optional integral laser module is a patented unit that can be added to make the Nova-Pro 500 a full-featured tachometer.

The Kit includes:

Nova-Pro 500 Strobe with an integral laser module and remote dock, standard Li-ion battery pack, battery charging station with the interchangeable USA, UK, AUS, and Euro adapter wall plugs

  • Ships in a deluxe watertight carry case with die-cut foam insert
  • Documentation: operation manual, product registration card, 6″ reflective tape, and NIST Calibration Certificate

This combines all the features of the handheld LED stroboscopes together with a full-function *laser tachometer to create a compact, ergonomic, and extremely powerful two-in-one predictive maintenance tool. The stroboscope light source is made up of twelve LEDs which are extraordinarily bright yet extremely cool continuous operation and long battery life (up to 9.5 hours on a single charge). Continuous operation is also possible with the optional AC adapter.

The Nova-Pro 500 (Featured) has all the features of the 300 and adds an additional standard battery pack, remote laser docking station, phase delay, time delay, and virtual slow motion.  The Nova-Pro 500 is available as a stand-alone battery-powered or AC-powered device and in kit form which ships in a deluxe watertight, die-cut foam-lined carry case.

For comparison, below are the other products in this range:

The Nova-Pro 100 is designed for simple stroboscopic stop motion inspection and RPM measurement applications. The patented integral laser module is an optional item that can be added to make the 100 a full-featured tachometer.

The Nova-Pro 300 has all the features of the 100 and includes the patented integral laser module for tachometer mode or strobe trigger mode plus adds a high-contrast inverse blue LCD display with backlight and touch-sensitive number pad for setting flash rates quickly. Other features include ultra-high intensity LEDs for more light output, memory for up to 10 preset flash rates, input/output jacks for external sensors or pulse repeater output, and NIST calibration certificate.

Note: Integral optical sensor and flash trigger protected under US Patent 10,080,268.
