Description :

The UNIBLITZ® ED12DSS Open Frame Bi-stable Driver is an open-frame, single board shutter driver design well-suited for integration into OEM applications. All that is required is a user-supplied +12 to +24VDC power supply and TTL input signal source.

The ED12DSS is the optimal driver for the UNIBLITZ® N-CAS® DSS Shutter Series. It will operate a DSS or NS series shutter from a +12 to 24V DC power supply. Installation and operation simply require connection to a user-supplied power supply, the input and output harness connectors, and user selection of the open and close pulse duration using the on-board 4-position piano switch. The TTL pulse duration determines exposure time.
