Description :

The UNIBLITZ® XRS serie uni-stable shutter has been designed specifically for x-ray switching applications. The ability of the size to force ratio and reliability of this actuator to move high mass PtIr (Platinum Iridium) blade in and out of the aperture is what makes these devices available and useful for applications such as x-ray crystallography and other applications that require x-rays to be turned on and off in msec.
