The PK2X hand-held Pocket Strobe®, a non contact RPM measuring device for rotating and moving parts.
Convenient and accurately designed to perform non-contact RPM measurements on rotating or reciprocating parts or components.
This stroboscopic effect is accomplished by matching the flash rate of the stroboscope with the repetitive rate (RPM) of motion of the target.
The PK2X is also a proven means for inspection of moving parts/machinery by "freezing"or "slowing down" the movement. Measuring a slow motion effect is accomplished with a slight mismatch of the relative speeds.?
The PK2X stroboscope is powered by a rechargeable internal battery or an external AC power source allowing for continuous use if necessary, or continued use when the battery power level is low. The lightweight handheld design makes this stroboscope perfect for use by field (service) technicians or maintenance personnel.
The PK2X offers significant improvements from the previous generation model PK2 including the following:
• 50% improvement in flash brightness
• 100% improvement in battery run-time
• Doubles the choice of power by permitting operation during re-charge or continuous operation when connected to an AC-power source
The PK2X continues to offer the highest reliability, refined by over 10-years of continuous design & manufacturing improvements since the introduction of the original Pocket Strobe Model PK1 was introduced in 1996.
The PK2X stroboscope can be operated with only one hand, yet delivers performance comparable to much larger and heavier “pistol-grip” type models. It is ideal for laboratory, industrial, R&D and academic environments. Its small size and excellent performance provide superior convenience and value.
The kit includes a Universal AC-Adapter/Charger and External Trigger Jack in Carrying Case with Traceable Calibration Certificate.
Features Internal rechargeable Lithium Ion battery uses latest "smart-charge" technology for longest possible life and 2-Hour run-time on a single charge.
The PK2X can be mounted on a tripod.
