The 218M optical chopper and control module enables light source amplitude modulation for applications in the infrared and with high ambient illumination.
Four easily-interchangeable chopping discs are provided as standard which allow chopping frequencies in the range of 5Hz to 3kHz.
Key features of the 218M, such as phase jitter, frequency stability and a long motor life, have been prioritised over more esoteric features not required in most applications to offer outstanding performance in a cost effective solution.
