Improvements to the LED Beacon provide peace-of-mind when inspecting formation activity and analyzing machine vibration on paper machines.

Unilux, one of the leading designer and manufacturer of inspection strobes, announces that the LED Beacon is now IP65-rated (water and pulp-resistant).
The strobe is used to ‘freeze’ motion up to 15 feet (4.6 meters) away, allowing mill personnel to evaluate critical processes at full production speed.

“The LED Beacon was the first LED strobe powerful enough to ‘throw’ light across an entire paper machine, while providing all the benefits associated with LEDs,” said Mike Simonis, president, Unilux. “This achievement is a result of our persistence to create the most durable, most dependable inspection strobe for our customers.” The LED Beacon is a versatile inspection strobe light ideal for evaluating 39 processes from the head box to the rewinder. It is the only portable inspection strobe with an IP65 rating for resistance to splash and pulp. Unilux inspection lights use the stroboscopic effect to freeze the motion of an object that would appear as a blur to the human eye, exposing quality and process issues at full production speed.

Unilux inspection systems use the stroboscopic effect to ‘freeze’ motion, making the smallest of defects clearly visible at full production speed. Unilux empowers operators to quickly find and correct defects at the source to protect the company’s reputation for quality and reduce waste.
