Economical Beam Switching Device
This actuator, an effective replacement for General Scanning's 3X expensive GM20, has a fully integrated arm/mirror assembly, support bracket, and driver. It is an On/Off device signalled by 4-20 VDC. Therefore, they work very well with 3-5 Volt TTL signals as supplied by our EffectsWizard microcontroller projector modules. These are by far the most cost effective quality actuators on the market today. You save on the mirror assemblies, mount, and most importantly, the cost of driver electronics. We use them as shutters, on beam tables as pickoff actuators, and as flags in (dichroic color subtraction) color boxes. Universities and photonics research labs will find them to be very cost effective shutters and beam switching devices.
Single actuators can cycle effectively at greater than 15 hertz. Sequential beam pick-offs can be done at up to 30-40 hertz.

Use STP 8X's with our FxWizard PICPro Microcontroller Modules. They can control a shutter, 3 color flags, and 20 more port actuators all from a single 3-wire RS232. Use your own software with our decode conventions or run EffectsWizard Lite, standard FxWizard, or Wizard2000 from Win95 and control all your beam effects with speed, elegance, and ease. We also offer DMX control of these actuators using either ILDA standards or your own conventions.
