Shutters by Melles Griot

Laser Shutters

These shutters offer the same capabilities and performance characteristics as our regular Rotor Drive shutters, with an integrated controller built-in to enable rapid integration into your application with minimal investment. We ensure that the controller is properly integrated, eliminating shutter malfunctions that can occur from an incorrect actuation signal. Our actuator technology has a design life of several million cycles, and its open architecture is easily configurable for custom packages and requirements. Shutters are available in both single- and multi-blade formats.

Rotor Drive Shutters

Melles Griot Rotor Drive shutters incorporate a new generation of actuator technology for applications that require a small space envelope and unprecedented reliability, even under severe operating conditions. Our actuator technology has a design life of several million cycles, and its open architecture is easily configurable for custom packages and requirements. Melles Griot Rotor Drive shutters are available in both single- and multi-blade formats.

  • Easily customized for new and existing configurations
  • Designed for extreme temperature conditions (-40°C to +70°C)
  • Consumes power only while moving the blades (bi-stable)
  • Extremely lightweight with few moving parts
  • Reliably operates for several million cycles
  • Resists high shock and vibration during operation

Rotor Drive Paddle Shutter, Bistable
Best for price sensitive, smaller compact size configurations.The RDS 7X1 paddle shutter is a basic suspended-blade shutter. The single blade is directly driven by bi-directional electrical pulses, and retains position in the absence of power. The shutter is designed for long life and high reliability. It is designed to withstand temperature extremes and shock/vibration conditions commonly found in transportation and field portable applications. Blade shape and coatings are optimized for visible and IR imaging applications.

Stepper Motor Shutters

Melles Griot Stepper Shutters use miniature stepper motors and geared drives, providing reliable low-power performance in a very compact package. Blade shape and coatings are optimized for visible and IR imaging, making them ideal for applications such as miniaturized night vision cameras and sights. The controlled speed/motion of the stepper drive minimizes blade stop impact, for long life, low wear, and low noise. The shutters are designed to withstand harsh environmental conditions, including shock, vibration and extreme temperatures typical in transportation and field portable applications.

  • Micro miniature package
  • Low weight
  • Low power consumption
  • Long life
  • Low impact / Low wear
  • Repeatable speed/time control
  • Shock and vibration resistance
  • Reliable operation from -40°C to +70°C
  • High IR-emissivity blade coating
