Heiland Splitgrade System in general:|
This unique system facilitates and accelerates the making of high-quality black-and-white photographs on multigrade paper. First of all, by measuring areas of light and shadow of the projected negative, the user
determines contrast and brightness on the easel. For over 30 default paper calibrations, a first suggestion for the right exposure will immediately be calculated with 1/10 f-stop / gradation level accuracy.
Via the unique filter control with shutter function, these measurements will automatically be transformed into a split exposure.
Furthermore, there is no limit to any possible manual corrections and post-exposure.
Image results are developed much faster and creative working is encouraged, instead of limited.
Version for Aristo VC enlargers:
The scope of supply includes the modification of the Aristo control unit. The selector switches for gradation and light color are replaced by a relay control. This way, the light colors blue and green can be controlled directly by Splitgrade.
A shutter is not necessary in case of the Aristo cold light source, as switching On and Off of the tubes is very rapid.
The control unit needs to be send in to Heiland Electronic after the purchase in order to be modified for the automatic Splitgrade System.
Important information! Please only send in the control unit because the risk of breakage for the glass tubes in the light source is very high.
