Collimators & Focusers

High Power Shutters and Safety Interlocks

Key Features

  • Multiple watt CW power handling
  • Shutter speeds of < 5 msec
  • Controlled via a 5 volt TTL signal
  • Available with temperature and connector proximity sensors for safety interlocks
  • Compatible with SMA 905 and FC connectors, including high power air gap style connectors


In response to increasing demand for high power handling fiber optic components,
OZ Optics has developed a series of fiber optic shutters and connectors that incorporate smart sensors for safety interlocks. These shutter systems can be incorporated in
OZ Optics line of high power handling components, including free-space-to-fiber and
fiberto-fiber coupling situations.

The key components that allow realization of smart shutters and safety interlocks are a series of proximity sensors and temperature sensors installed at suitable locations in the body of fiber optic assemblies.


  • All situations involving laser beams, including high power laser beams coupled into
  • singlemode or multimode fibers
  • Any laser facility requiring compliance to regulatory laser safety standards
  • High power Industrial laser applications - Laser marking, cutting, welding
  • Lasers used in medical applications - laser scalpel, eye surgery, tattoo removal
  • High power laser physics
  • High power spectroscopy
  • OEM laser systems
