Optical Shutters

Johnson Electric provides application specific piezo motors and shutter subsystems for global leaders in airborne imaging. Optimized for defense applications such as NUC (non-uniformity correction) and filter changers, these custom engineered piezo shutters marketed under the Nanomotion brand feature unique direct drive piezo technology with closed loop control, delivering silent operation and low EMI / RFI profiles. Innovative mechanical designs create the closest back-working distance. Nanomotion piezo shutters have the best SWaP (size, weight and power) performance for in-flight, head mounted or hand held devices. Our Parlex Flat Flexible Cable (FFC) products are also custom designed for use in airborne surveillance cameras. The optical system is constantly in motion and the flexible, long life FFC products are ideal for these rugged, constant duty applications.


Johnson Electric has created world class motion and switch product solutions for thousands of applications in many industries. Our global customers rely on us to develop customized motion, switching and systems solutions for their unique and complex application needs derived from our wide ranging product platforms. Our engineering centers of excellence in Asia, the Americas and Europe assist our customers daily to become more successful and competitive in today's evolving market place.
