Shimpo stroboscopes enable the user to view "stopped motion", when in actuality the equipment or media is moving at a high rate of speed. Our stroboscopes are loaded with many features, including phase shifting. The digital display allows the flash rate (FPM) to be read as rotational speed measurement (RPM) or reciprocating speed for conditions where a handheld tachometer is impractical.

Shimpo Stroboscope Applications

Designed for quality control, motion analysis and maintenance procedures including: production line checks, gear movement and engagement, propellers, turbines, monitoring vibrating parts, oil leak checks and a host of other industrial and scientific operations. Don't forget to check out our stroboscope accessories and attachments. Not sure which sensor to use with your stroboscope? Use our sensor cross-reference.




The DT-721 and DT-725 are packed with many of the same features as our famous DT-300 series but are lighter in weight. Constructed of strengthened high impact plastic, these rugged units are exceptionally reliable and withstand the same harsh conditions as more expensive units. Both units are sold separately or as a convenient kit. The DT-721/DT-725 KIT contains a strobe, extra flash bulb, charger and rugged carrying case. One year warranty.
