(SSES-UHE) Shutter and controller for UHE-15,16, 33

Sku: 166-8005

Quick Overview

Shutter controller and blade assembly that works with the UHE-15/16 and 33 series solar simulators.
An arc lamp is not designed to be frequently turned off and on and doing so will dramatically lower its service life. In addition, each time it is turned on it requires the power supply to ignite it with a 20,000V+ spark. The best option for performing exposure testing is to integrate an electronic shutter system inside the beam homogenizer. The electronic shutter is computer controlled with an activation time of <150ms. Software for the shutter controller is included with this item. The standard shutter controller connects to a computer via RS232. RS232-USB converters are available and work with this product. In addition to computer control the shutter can be controlled via a toggle switch on the shutter controller box.

This shutter can be used with any high powered light source and can effectivley block a 4" diameter beam. See the brochure information for a mounting pattern.

This device can be controllable through Sciencetech's new line of Touch Screen power supplies (including automated explosure time control).
Please note leaving the shutter closed for exteremly long periods of time while the arc lamp is on may cause damage to the motorized components.
