You might like to consider using Ramp-Ascend from Deque. It is an accessibility evaluation and repair tool  that can detect the flicker violation and  change the flicker to an acceptable level automatically.
The Ramp series of tools are listed  at

  The only Flicker meter I've found is a mains voltage monitor - not very good.

   

  The only thing we can think of is a calibrated strobe lamp that you can shine on the flickering object and vary the rate of flashes - but it would need to be calibrated pretty accurately.

   

  Difficult one.

  Hi All,

  Please forgive me if this question has been asked numerous times.  Does anyone know a way to test an object to determine if it flickers between 2 and 55 Hz?  I saw somewhere that you could use a stop watch but I can't imagine someone being able to count 55 times in a second.  

  Thanks in advance,

  Scott
