Goepel Intros Intelligent Inspection Camera
Multipurpose "Buzzard" inspection camera.
Jena, Germany — Goepel electronic is offering an internally developed camera and illumination system for optical inspection of selective solder joints to be integrated into external test cells. The integration package contains a specifically designed 4 Megapixel BUZZARD camera with GigE interface, multispectral illumination, a PC and respective software. The camera and illumination system concept, which has been successfully utilized in the company's well-proven OptiCon AOI systems for mounted PCBs, can be configured to the specific optical test demands of each inspection system.

The 4 Megapixel camera with integrated Power PC reportedly provides excellent images, and provides functionalities for image pre-processing, e.g. equalization, shading corrections, and filter functions. Another highlight is the multispectral illumination control, coverage of light spectrum from UV to IR and guaranteed high-contrast images of inspected solder joints and components. The BUZZARD camera is the first in a line of newly developed camera systems based on several CCD sensors.

An integral part of the integration package is the easy-to-use TOM Line software for industrial applications. It has an extensive range of test functions to evaluate THT solder joints, shorts or solder splashes. The software can be operated and controlled by a remote interface.
