Blade-less Actuator | RS08 Rotary Shutter

Motion SystemsNanomotion's RS08 Rotary Shutter is the first of its kind, utilizing a silent, miniature piezo actuator in an 8mm x 20mm package with all the drive electronics internal to the shutter body. The advantages of this configuration have been recognized and accepted in a host of shutter and filter changer applications, ultimately resulting in a wide variation of blade sizes and blades with embedded filters. Recognizing the need for customers to adapt their own output to this actuator, and operate within the guidelines of ITAR and application confidentiality, the RS08 lends itself to be configured without a blade, simply including the actuator body, grid and mount screw. Silent & Efficient
Motion Systems
  • Shutter weight = 2grams
  • Switching time = 50msec
  • Travel up to 120°
  • Power consumption to 250mw (only during motion)
Nanomotion's RS08A Rotary Actuator supports both shutter and filter changer applications. The assembly consists of:
  • Actuator body with internal drive electronics
  • Grid that controls electrical and mechanic travel limits
  • Mounting screw
The grid is provided with two locating pins to allow for proper alignment to third party blades or filters. Based on the size, weight, shock and performance required of a specific application, Nanomotion will provide the necessary evaluation to consider:
  1. Frictional Loads seen by the piezo motor based on the acceleration forces and the shutter orientation (transverse torque)
  2. Holding Force: The actuator can hold position with a torque of Tmotor = 0.83mNm.
