The Uniblitz VED24, or Versatile Electronic Driver, provides simple, straightforward shutter control. The device is single-channel, and is compatible with both uni-stable and bi-stable shutter devices. Operation options include manual shutter control, external triggering, and remote computer interfacing. Exposure is determined by external pulse (Active-Low, TTL), computer interface, or switch contact.

See the VED24 User Manual for additional information regarding this device. The VED24 is RoHS compliant and CE certified.
