The KAB SpeedStrobe was designed to replace and improve upon older strobe designs that relied on power line frequency. KAB also wanted something that was easier to use and included the ability to actually measure small amounts of error. Not just a go-no-go test.
The KAB SpeedStrobe features a quartz locked illuminator with 99.99% accuracy. And since it is battery operated, it works everywhere. No need for 50 or 60 Hz versions. The disc is silk screen printed on durable 20 mil PVC. Instead of hypnotic bars, the KAB SpeedStrobe features the actual speed numbers. In use, the desired speed is read directly from the disc; no searching for the right band.
