Coming Soon

The Uniblitz FS series shutters do not require a driver for operation (only +5V to open and 0V to close), so for applications that require remote operation of the shutter from a TTL signal or USB interface, the VLM1B Interface Module is available.

This device also offers an optional Electronic Sync interface along with a SYNC Output BNC. Additionally, the device can be operated using a USB interface which will use the computer’s power to operate the VLM1B and the attached shutter.

The VLM1B is RoHS compliant.

What’s Included


  • VLM1B Board-Level Interface Module
  • Manual (included on flash drive)
  • Micro Screwdriver (to install shutter leads)
