Omron Focuses on High-Speed PCB Inspection Solutions
The VT-RNS II AOI system.
Schaumburg, IL — Omron Inspection Systems is introducing high-speed enhancements for its VT-RNS Automated Optical Inspection System. The enhancements were developed to help manufacturers shorten program generation, improve inspection cycle time and eliminate escapes and reduce false calls while maintaining the company's high quality inspection capability.

Typical enhanced equipment includes the VT-RNSII in-line and benchtop, post reflow AOI inspection systems and the VP5200 3D in-line solder paste inspection system.

The VT-RNSII is described by the company as providing a cost effective AOI platform for in-line and benchtop use. The 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 the company'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 by obtaining three times the information of a conventional 1-CCD camera.
