The DT-900 from Shimpo Instruments is the perfect tool for slow motion, or stop action stroboscopic inspection. The Shimpo TechStrobe is the only palm size unit to include a Phase shift feature. Phase shifting allows the TechStrobe operator to advance or retard the flash timing by degrees° of angle, without changing the actual flash rate (FPM) of the TechStrobe

Employing its unique Phase shifting feature, the TechStrobe “freezes” rotating or reciprocating machinery for visual inspection of covered gear teeth, shafts, oil/fuel/ink injector patterns, and print media; all without stopping production

Designed for right or left hand, all TechStrobe functions are intuitive and easy to use. Quality and Maintenance Professionals will appreciate the rotary and push button controls for internal flash (FPM/RPM) control, external triggering, tachometer mode and Phase shift control. The push buttons rapidly increase (x 2), or decrease (÷2) the flashes per minute (FPM) and change by degrees° the Flash phase
