Overview


Open Datasheet  TS6B Laser Shutter Datasheet

The Uniblitz TS6B is a 6mm bi-stable laser shutter that withholds an extremely low-profile construction. The device's lack of an external protruding actuator makes it very slim and flexible for system integration. Precision exposure control and laser switching are applications that benefit greatly from the precise, repeatable characteristics of the TS shutter series.

Bi-stable shutter devices, like the TS6B, require no power to hold the blades in either the open or closed state.


Key Features


  • 6mm aperture
  • Bi-stable operation
  • Extremely low-profile form-factor
  • RoHS Compliant
  • Transfer time on opening: 1.7 milliseconds
  • Total opening time: 3.1 milliseconds
  • Configured for the VED24 Shutter Driver

Timing Segment Timing (msec)
0-A:                         Delay time on opening after current is applied 1.4
A-C: Transfer time on opening 1.7
O-C: Total opening time 3.1
C-E: Min. dwell time with min. input pulse 4.3
B-F: Min. equivalent exp. time 6.0
D-E: Delay time on closing after current is applied 1.4
E-G: Transfer time on closing 1.7
A-G: Total window time 7.7
MET: Min. exposure time 6.0
TEP: Typical exposure pulse >6.0

The question regarding enhancement of shutter speed with the application of user supplied lubricants has been repeatedly asked. It is our experience that lubricating the shutter blades will actually slow the shutter down and eventually render the shutter inoperable. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD ANY TYPE OF LUBRICANT BE APPLIED TO THE SHUTTER BLADE AREA.

Unhoused

The UNIBLITZ® TS6B is designed with a low-profile and flat surfaces for easy integration into your system. Three countersunk mounting holes are provided for use with 0-80 FH screws. The body of the shutter measures 1.050” in diameter and only .190” thick. There are no protrusions of any kind outside of the main envelope. A 45° chamfer is included on both sides of the shutter allowing for extra clearance through the aperture.

A standard shutter is terminated by a 2-pin JST header (S2B-PH-SM4-TB). The connector is mounted on a 4” flexible circuit. Alternatively, the shutter can be purchased with 18” flying leads (30 AWG) attached to the end of the 4” flexible circuit (“L” specification). The 203D cable is required when controlling the TS6B with the ED12DSS which is included with the ED12DSS driver.
