FEBRUARY 19, 2009--The SectorInspector system has been developed to enable flexible, high-resolution, high-power magnification and inspection of microscopic features on large, planar samples, particularly large photovoltaic modules. A twin video microscope imaging head offers two different range sets of high magnifications, as well as a gantry-mounted precision stereomicroscope with video. A series of illumination systems, including LED-based brightfield and darkfield, and a transmitted large-area backlight are standard. The joystick and PC-controlled motorized X/Y mechanism positions the imaging head. Custom sizing is available on request.

PRESS RELEASE

Manufacturers of flat, large area, high technology products such as photovoltaic, LCD & plasma panels, are faced with a series of increasingly challenging tasks when performing detailed inspection of their products. Often, system-critical features such as micro circuits, interconnects, pixels, micro defects and other microscopic features, present a number of unique inspection challenges, requiring well optimised illumination, flexible magnification, as well as precision positioning control of the object itself.

SectorInspector has been developed by Opto specifically to address these needs, enabling flexible, high resolution variable magnification inspection of microscopic features on large, planar samples.

SectorInspector's seamless integration of highly advanced optomechanics coupled with its unique, easy to use imaging & metrology software provides you with an invaluable tool in your inspection process. SectorInspector gives you the capability to capture, analyse, and quantify the highest quality images of your most challenging microscopic features on your largest area samples.

SectorInspector is designed to offer you maximum imaging flexibility. With its unique twin video microscope imaging head offering two different range sets of high magnifications, along with the inclusion of a 'go anywhere' gantry mounted precision stereomicroscope with video, a truly comprehensive optical suite, incorporating the very latest imag-ing technology is now right at your fingertips.

In order to illuminate the most challenging features on the largest samples, SectorInspector incorporates as standard, a series of advanced illumination systems, including LED based brightfield and darkfield, and for maximum imaging capability, the benefit of a transmitted large area backlight.

At Opto, you'll always find the right system for your needs. As the designer and manufacturer of the SectorInspector, we are able to customise our system to whatever configuration you may require!
