Technology type: Optical Shutter Systems

The optical shutter systems from SRS — SR470 laser shutter controller and SR474 four-channel laser shutter driver are designed specifically to minimise vibration on your optical table. They are built around a unique shutter head, supported by one of two available controller models. The SR470 provides timing signals to a single shutter head, while the multi-channel SR474 drives up to four shutter heads and is controlled by external timing signals.

Unlike conventional solenoid based shutters, the SR475 shutter head contains a closed-loop DSP control system that precisely guides the shutter blade between open and closed positions, never encountering physical stops. Vibration and mechanical noise are kept to a minimum, leaving your optical table disturbance-free.
