Harold Edgerton, as a very young man, was intrigued when he saw that lightning flashes made rain drops appear stationary in the air. This discovery marked the beginning of the history of modern stroboscopes. Today, stroboscopes are used not just to measure and observe rotation and motion, but in optical shutters for products incorporating computers and fulfill various functions in industry and in our daily lives.
Sugawara's stroboscopes use xenon flashlamps developed and manufactured in-house. Drawing on the know-how accumulated over many years, Sugawara evaluates each part used in its products, including capacitors, to ensure high product reliability.
Sugawara offers a wide array of stroboscopes, ranging from general-purpose portable products to larger models for use in production lines and laboratories. The flash duration provided by these products ranges from an extremely short 40 nsec to as long as 2 msec.
