The new Checkline LS-9-12000 Linear Strobe is designed for fixed mounting on all machinery that utilize a strobe for visual inspection including, rewinders, slitters and similar process equipment in the label printing and process market as well as many others markets including vibration analyzers, balancers, metal producing equipment and much more.
The LS-9's flash rate can be externally triggered by an external sensor/controller on the process machine or the following optional accessories; the LS-FCM Flash Control Module or the LS-SCU Remote Strobe Controller. Refer to a separate webpage on these accessories by clicking the links in the "Related Products" section. The strobe operates using 24V DC (18 - 28V DC) using power already available on the machine or by using the our worldwide AC-DC power adapter available as an option.
The LS-9 produces an extremely bright, sharp image employing a quartz glass xenon tube with extremely short flash duration of less than 10µs allowing detailed visual inspection of fast-moving targets. While under observation, when the flash rate is synchronized with the "repeat rate" of the web material, the image will appear "frozen" allowing for convenient inspection.
The brightness, sharpness and uniform light output provided by the LS-9 makes this model an excellent choice for fixed applications. It is especially well-suited for use on narrow web equipment up to 24 inches in width (600 mm width) and even wider. 2 or more strobes can be combined in a Master/Slave arrangement when wider web widths must be covered.
