HydroShutter-HR

Overview Specifications
HydroShutter-HR with Irradiance Collector

Shown Protecting a Planar

Irradiance Collector

Anti-Fouling Shutter for HydroRad Light Collectors

The HydroShutter-HR protects HydroRad light collectors from bio-fouling during long deployments.  Under control of the HydroRad, the copper shutter blade covers the light collector when it is not collecting data.

Like the HydroShutter-HS, the HydroShutter-HR can also be used as a submersible actuator for other applications.

Also see the HydroRad-ES1, with shutter built-in!
