    Lasermet LS-200 Laser Shutter - The “Thunder Shutter”

    The Lasermet LS200 Laser Safety Shutter is designed to prevent accidental exposure to potentially harmful laser beams.

    When the shutter is open the laser beam passes in clear air through the shutter. When closed, the shutter deflects the incoming laser beam out of a separate port to an appropriate beam dump which must be fitted.

    The equipment comprises of the LS-200 shutter with a power/communications cable and fixing nuts. The air cooled beam dump is a separate item but can be supplied as a complete set – shutter and beam dump. Users may wish to use a separate beam dump of higher capacity for use with a mirror blade and higher powered lasers.

    Lasermet LS20: High Integrity Laser Safety Beam Shutter

    The Lasermet LS-20 Laser Safety Shutter is intended to provide a means of preventing accidental exposure to a potentially harmful laser beam. It has been designed to form part of a high-integrity safety system and features a gravity-close blade and force-disconnect proving contacts. When closed, the shutter deflects the incoming laser beam onto an internal beam dump where the energy is converted to heat which is dissipated in the aluminium casing of the shutter. When the shutter is open, the laser beam passes through the shutter without interruption.
