The RTTS V.3 belongs to our newest generation of professional ballistic measurement systems. It is a Real Time Trigger System that combines flexibility, reliability, very high accuracy and is very easy to use. The RTTS V.3 represents 30 years of experience in ballistic measurement technology. Because of our strict quality standards, the system is completely developed and manufactured in Germany.

Designed for high speed photography and video. To synchronize cameras, flash lights and other measurement equipment to free flying objects like bullets in realtime.

RTTS Triggersystems can be used cost- and time saving in ballistic, forensic, defense, aerospace, material testing and many other applications. The system is able to be controlled with a PC based Software or completely PC-independent by infrared remote control. An optional wireless interface is also available.

The Hardware
The completely new designed hardware consists of a mainboard and front panel with a blue, LED backlighted LC display. The digital controlled light screen amplifiers provide the RTTS V.3 with a unmatched precision. The measuring clock frequency is 70MHz, this allows the system to work with a very high resolution, even at high velocities.

The RTTS V.3 is equipped with a 10/100Mb LAN interface and can be delivered optional with a wireless interface. It is also possible to upgrade the system with the optional wireless interface later.

Light screen amplifier:

The light screen amplifier is used to filter, boost and digitize the signals generated by the light screens when a bullet passes. The amplifier can be controlled completely digitally with the IR- Remote control or PC-Software. Since using completely digitally controlled amplifiers without mechanical parts, like potentiometers, the reliability of our systems has increased. The RTTS V.3 self checks, and if necessary regulates, its light screens and amplifier every 5 seconds to ensure always the best amplifier adjustments. Thus, the systems are completely
independent from ambient conditions and are capable of functioning in complete darkness and sunlight. The permanent available, optimized setup gives the RTTS V.3 its superior accuracy. The new measurement controller includes a highly effective real time blast wave suppressor. This suppressor is useful mainly with large light screen systems, but can also be useful to eliminate electrical disturbances.

Selectable inputs for light screens and analog or digital inputs and outputs allows the RTTS V.3 to be prepared
precisely to job to be done. The standard light screen LS 260 already allows very precise measurements. Because of
the new, digital controlled light screen amplifiers, it is very ease to connect different light screens to the system.
Required adjustments can be done easy by software or remote control.
