Advanced Laser Shutter Devices

DACO Instruments is the premier line of laser shuttering devices for aircraft, fiber optics, spectroscopy, thermal imaging and beyond. Customers outperform extensive requirements with the mix of shutters we design and manufacture. We specialize in miniature devices with sizes ranging from 0.38″ to 0.50″ diameter, but you can leverage our in-house capabilities to design any size and shape of shutter required for your application.

Customizing solutions to your exact needs is DACO’s core focus. Below are sample specifications ranges for models that we manufacture. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, contact us for more information.

Advanced bi-stable or spring shutter devices reputed for beam-blocking across a host of applications. Customize form and fit to your application’s precise needs.

Bi-Stable, Pulse-Driven Shutters

Reliable units customized for low power or battery operation. Ideally suited for challenging environments with conditions such as low vibration or high shock. Night vision goggles, infrared cameras, medical devices and more applications use our bi-stable shutters for beam-blocking.

When the shutter receives the pulse, it moves to its “On” position and will stay there even when the operating voltage is removed. The unit will return to the “Off” position when it receives the reverse pulse.

Spring Return Shutters

Advanced units designed, engineered and precision manufactured for the exacting demands of Military & Defense industries. The shutters move to the energized position when they receive operating voltage and remain in that position till voltage is removed and the shutter returns to its de-energized state.
