Mechanical Comparison Chart

The mechanical chart compares the mechanical specifications of all standard UNIBLITZ® type shutters. This includes bounce and max frequency of operation. Be advised, all UNIBLITZ® shutters are properly lubricated prior to shipment. Subsequent or additional lubrication provided by the user will render the shutter inoperable and in-reparable.

Nomenclature specific to UNIBLITZ® shutters may be used throughout these sheets, notably opening bounce and closing bounce. The amount of "bounce" specified is the maximum allowed for a Vincent, UNIBLITZ® shutter. Opening bounce is the maximum amount the blades will come back into the aperture when they have traveled to full open. Closing bounce is the maximum amount the blades will open after the shutter has returned to the closed position. The amount specified is a percentage of the specific aperture diameter.

Customers, who require additional information than indicated in the charts, please contact one of our technical representatives.
