Crossed-Beam Sensor Control Box and Frame Kits, unassembled prices reduced!

CBS-E/F

The Crossed-Beam Sensor is specifically designed to capture photos of birds in flight. In use, a photogate frame with crossed beams is mounted along a frequent bird flight path. The camera is prefocused on the intersection of the two beams, and one or more flash units are used to capture the action. When a bird passes through the intersection of the beams, the camera shutter is actuated.

 

While triggering a camera is the most common application for the crossed-beam photogate, the circuit can also trigger flash units and wireless transmitters.

 

A complete system requires these components:

  • CBS control box
  • CBS photogate frame
  • Shutter cable

An optional AC/DC wall transformer is recommended for extended use.

We offer the photogate frame kit as a separate purchase in the event that you want to build a frame of a different size than the 12-in square frame that we provide. Assembly of either kit is required. See the assembly instructions above for details.

Shutter Cables

 

We provide shutter cables for most camera makes/models for use with our triggers. When you order a shutter cable, we include a 6-ft extension cable as well as an adapter to convert the cable for use with the 3.5mm stereo jack on our triggers.

 

Select your camera make/model below and note the corresponding ID. If you don't find your model listed, compare the socket on your camera to the photos below. The photos will enlarge by clicking on them. If you are still unable to determine the type of plug that you need, please contact us. If you already have a shutter release and want to convert it for use with our triggers, this page may help.

 

All shutter cables, which include extension cords and adapters, are $9.95.
