Technology type: Galvanometer Scanners and Shutters

In addition to the excellent mechanical functionality of the Uniblitz shutter, optimally adapted control electronics (driver) are essential for the performance of a shutter, especially to achieve its timing specification.

The desktop controllers VCM-D1 and VED24 offer the possibility to run all operating modes of a shutter. Depending on the shutter, whether unistable or bistable, the appropriate driver supplies the necessary current-voltage pulses, if these are initiated either by a simple switching contact (e.g. footswitch), manually at the driver, by TTL signal or via PC interface (RS232).

The shutter can either open or close on a falling or rising edge, or the duration of the TTL signal determines the duration of the open state. Due to the required CE-marking, only single-channel drivers can be offered In Europe.

Range features

A high level overview of what this range offers

  • Desktop controller for easy operation via switch contact (footswitch optional), TTL or RS232
  • Control boards for the OEM user with TTL control only
  • VCM-D1 the standard among drivers for unistable Uniblitz shutters. With integrated automatic switching from high opening voltage to low holding voltage. This enables the fastest possible opening times and minimum gate widths
  • VED24 the all-rounder for unistable and bistable shutters. When using this control unit, the shutters of the CS, LS, VS, and XRS series must be equipped with the so-called "E" option, as a different coil resistance is required
  • If the used shutter has a sync option (feedback contact that the shutter is open), the switching state of the shutter is indicated by an LED on the VCM-D1 and VED24 drivers and can be picked up as a signal for further processing
  • The control board D880C is designed for unstable shutters only and is controlled by TTL logic. Again, the "E" option is required when selecting the shutter
  • For all bistable shutters, the ED12DSS control board can be used, only the shutter type NS must have the additional option "ED"
