Using a 5MP camera with sub 8um X-Y resolution, the system gives the ability to inspect almost any component and feature.  Laser sensor for coplanarity height measurements of components and leads.  A robust yet flexible universal carrier system gives the user the flexibility to quickly insert a PCB up to 460mm x 360mm, clamp it and inspect with the press of a single button. Once complete the PCB is returned to the load point ready for the next PCB to be loaded.

The Merlin includes full 1D and 2D bar code reading as standard to offer a fully traceable solution that can be combined with the user-friendly Prey rework suite.
