Nova-Strobe bax and bbx Stroboscopes

The Nova-Strobe series represents the latest in portable stroboscope technology. Both the bax and bbx are simple to operate, just point and shoot. Lightweight and bright with flash rates to 10,000 flashes per minute (FPM) these strobes are comfortable to hold and will operate continuously with no danger of overheating.

The bbx battery operated stroboscope weighs only 1.9 lbs. (0.86kg) and will run continuously for 2 hours on a single charge. A slow charger is included. Re-charge time is 4 hours.

The bax stroboscope is AC mains powered (115 or 230 Vac) and weighs only 1.5 lbs. (0.68 kg). A large digital LCD is easy to adjust and read. The flash rate adjustment is quickly made with the tactile tuning knob. 




All New Nova-Strobe BAX and BBX provide a low-cost digital display stroboscope.
