Inner inspection

Key advantages

  • Inspection of cavities from inside
    Hidden internal features and defects are clearly viewed
  • High resolution
    The catadioptric design enables the detection of tiny defects over a very wide view angle
  • Flaw detection
    Coarse deformations revealed using direct illumination
  • Surface defect enhancement
    Mixing direct and indirect illumination makes it possible to emphasize tiny and scarcely visible defects.
  • Small diameter inspection
    Now down to 5.5 mm

Notes

  1. Working f-number (wf/N): the real f-number of a lens in operating conditions.
  2. Tolerance ± 2%
  3. Used in continuous (not pulsed) mode.
  4. Constant voltage power supply
  5. Constant current power supply
  6. Measured from the front end of the mechanics to the camera flange.

Additional notes

  1. Recommended use of a 1/2" sensor as the image may be decentered

PCBPN for inspection of holes with diameters between 5.5 and 25 mm

Inspection area

PCBPN for inspection of holes with diameters between 5.5 and 25 mm

An integrated LED source (for PCBP0xx and PCBPN013-WG) illuminates the cavity both diffusely and directly. The diagram on the left shows the different illumination areas. Diffused illumination is used for defect detection and component inspection.

Direct/specular illumination can be efficiently used to check for surface deformation on metal and highly reflective objects as well as to measure the hole diameter.

The image of the cavity covers around 50% of the detector height: the continuous red line indicates the bottom view of the cavity, the dashed line shows the upper view while the dash-dotted line refers to the undercut view on the cavity.

Unwrapped image. 360LIB-01 dedicated software library is available to easily and accurately unwrap the images.
