The Uniblitz NS45B is a 45mm-aperture bi-stable optical shutter utilizing our patented N-CAS® technology. The NS45B’s simple design provides maximum clearance around the aperture, and a machined flat surface makes for its easy integration into telescopes, video cameras, etc. The NS45B has an overall diameter of 3.915 inches, and an electronic synchronization is available.

Bi-stable shutter devices, like the NS45B, require no power to hold the blades in either the open or closed state.

*The “For use in Vacuum” option will equip the shutter with encapsulated coils for vacuum levels up to 10-6 Torr. The housing, connector, and electronic sync options cannot be selected from the product builder when “For use in Vacuum” is applied as these options are not vacuum compatible and may cause outgassing. For higher vacuum-rated applications, or questions, please contact us.
