Overview

The Lynx VS8 has been specifically designed for printed circuit board inspection (PCB) and features Vision Engineering’s signature eyepiece-less design.  

Ergonomics

Utilised in countless PCB manufacturing sites worldwide, the Lynx VS8 offers ease of use, comfort and significantly reduces user fatigue. Advances in optical design allow your eyes and hands to work together resulting in increased throughput, accuracy and reduced scrap and rework.

A lockable floating stage allows the PCB to be held at a constant angle which makes inspection easier and more comfortable.

Businesses choose Lynx because they know their operators are more efficient, more accurate and more productive. Businesses reap the benefits of better quality work, increased productivity and increased profits.

Scanning Stage

Stable, high capacity scanning stage provides free-floating movement for all board sizes, including double-sided PCBs.

Stage can be locked for precision inspection tasks (X-axis, Y-axis, or both) and is complete with earthing point for static-safe inspection.

Oblique and Direct Viewer

The oblique and direct viewer allows the operator to view a subject from an angle of 34° from vertical, which can be rotated through to 360° enabling a better stereo view of 3-dimensional subjects including PCB solder joints, holes, pillars and thread forms.

Choose either manual or motorised rotation operation and switchable between rotating and direct views. The oblique and direct viewer has integral ring light illumination.

Image capture and Archive

Range of standalone, USB and fully integrated digital / video camera options.

Modular multimedia solutions are available for image archiving, acquisition, processing, analysis and documentation.
