ROCHESTER, N.Y., June 16, 2006 -- Melles Griot Optics Group, manufacturer of UltraThin and IES shutters, has released the ExtremeService shutter, designed for operation in extreme environmental conditions involving large variations in temperature. The new shutter is optimized for OEM applications, such as night-vision cameras and analytical instrumentation, that require compact size, low weight, and low-voltage operation.

extshutters.jpgBruce Capron, director of sales and marketing for the Melles Griot Optics Group, said, "The ExtremeService shutter provides high performance and high reliability in harsh environmental conditions. Its robust, temperature-insensitive design performs flawlessly at temperatures as low as 440 °C and as high as +70 °C. The blade coatings are highly emissive in the infrared spectral region, making these shutters the ideal choice for calibrating uncooled sensors in FLIR systems. The ExtremeService shutters provide the reliability and control needed for night-vision and infrared-illumination systems, including a wide range of analytical, metrology and photonics instrumentation."
