The UDS-2 is a user installed dodging system kit designed to replace the entire electronic and optical systems in most makes of electronic photographic contact printers.
The UDS-2 uses Velocity Modulation, upgraded by EPC to provide nine pre-selectable levels of brightness, allowing trade-offs between best dodging and highest printing speed so you can customize the output of your operation.
The Control Assembly has power supplies, deflection generators, the exposure control and exposure index electronics, and AC outlets for the printers electrical loads and safelights.
The Light Source Assembly contains the cathode ray tube, high-voltage power supply, deflection drive circuits for the yoke and the centering and focus controls.
The Control Panel Assembly displays the operating controls for the equipment.
The PMT Assembly consists of a low-noise PMT amplifier and variable-dodging circuits.
The Material Index Assembly is a meter display and control for setting sensitivity conditions against photographic materials used. This is a one-time calibration and only needs verification every few months.
WHAT WILL IT DO FOR ME? The UDS-2 will restore your electronic dodging printer, replacing the original system and its aging electronics with a new circuit design having more features and better control. With the UDS-2, your printer will offer you more choices than you ever had before, in CRTs, quick-change pluggable assemblies and installation options.
The Light Source Assembly gives you choices, to fit your needs and budget. You can get color, for rapid access or type R materials, black and white for variable contrast, and black and white for graded papers. Each CRT Assembly is fully enclosed with a face plate cover and is readily interchangeable by non-technical personnel. You can have B/W or color with only the added expense of the light source electronics.
WHAT DO I GET? A complete electronic control system, an improved optical system, a new hood, a new front panel, and a new safe-light system, a new front door, a pressure-vacuum platen, and a step by step installation manual.
