Omron adds high-speed enhancements to VT-RNS PCB inspection system
March 13, 2011 - Omron Inspection Systems introduces high-speed enhancements for the VT-RNS Automated Optical Inspection System. These enhancements were developed to help manufacturers shorten program generation, improve inspection cycle time and eliminate escapes and reduce false calls while maintaining Omron’s high quality inspection capability.
VT-RNSII: Cost Effective AOI Platform for In-Line and Benchtop
New VT-RNSII in-line post-reflow inspection system and VT-RNSII-ptH benchtop model utilize faster shutter speeds and improved image processing to perform inspections 20 percent faster than the original VT-RNS series. This combination allows faster throughput and more detailed inspections of densely populated boards within the same cycle time. The VT-RNSII uses Omron's patented, proven Color Highlight system which delivers superior solder joint illumination by providing 3-dimensional information from a 2-dimensional image. This Color Highlight system utilizes RGB LEDS in a dome configuration which ensures consistent inspection regardless of component angles. The 3-CCD camera used in the system enhances solder shape recognition accuracy. The VT-RNSII offers high resolution of up to 10 microns that supports inspection of components as small as 01005 and 12 mil pitch. Optical Character Verification capability is standard. Omron's EzTS program generation software makes it easy for anyone to create and implement initial programs tailored to the PCB in just a few minutes. The flexible VT-RNSII machine platform also includes models for paste inspection and pre-reflow component placement inspection.
