Overview


The AIC10 is a tabletop motorized iris diaphragm (auto iris) controller designed for use with the Uniblitz AI25 Auto Iris. The AIC10 features an intuitive button array and digital user interface, allowing it to operate the iris via a modified serial command protocol. When equipped, the AIC10 will also operate the AI25’s optional high-speed shutter attachment independently from the iris. The shutter’s electronic sync allows the AIC10 to indicate the shutter’s state.

Key Features


  • Intuitive digital user interface
  • Optional shutter control (iris requires high-speed shutter attachment)
  • RS232 or TTL level signal control
  • RoHS Compliant

1 A step is equal to a single movement of the iris blades/aperture (while in the "Fine" resolution mode).

2 X1 and X2 are numerical positions of the iris where X1 is in the range of 0 to 5 and X2 is in the range of 0 to 9. See page 27 of the AIC10 User Manual for specific aperture sizes at a given position (step).

3 These commands also require two additional characters for these commands to operate correctly and to go to your selected iris position.
