Optics Subsystems

Product Description

The CM-VSU-01 (horizontal) subsystem is designed to observe formation and trajectories of droplets in flight (requires a pulsed LED or other pulsed light source for illumination). The CM-VSU-02 (vertical) subsystem is designed for locating fiducials on substrates and for inspection of printed patterns. The vertical subsystem is integrated into the Jetlab® II Printing System.

The Basic Optics subsystems (CM-VSU-03-HR) can be used for both drop and substrate observation, are available in multiple working distances, and are used in the Jetlab® 4 family of Printing Systems.

CM-VSU-01 and CM-VSU-02 subsystems include a USB CCD camera, zoom lens, and fine focus module. CM-VSU-02 (vertical) adds coaxial illumination. The Basic Optics (CM-VSU-03-HR) subsystems use a fixed magnification lens with fine focus.
