The Vi-3000 AOI system is said to be capable of 100 percent inspection of PCBs at speeds up to 150,000 components per hour. It reportedly employs a digital camera with 1,300 x 1,000 pixel resolution and a 48 x 37 mm field of view. The system`s image analysis software can be programmed using Gerber, CAD or ASCII/Centroid supplied data, and incorporates SPC software tools and a synthetic component library. Operators can reportedly select any combination of axial or pyramidal light sources and amber or green colors for variations in image color and intensity. Selected light settings are stored in the program for future use.
