OptiCon BasicLine

Stand-alone AOI System for manual Loading and flexible Adaptation of different Assemblies

The OptiCon BasicLine can also be utilized as a separate repair station and is characterized by a comfortable fault classification via keyboard.

A multitude of variants and settings in illumination and camera make the system a highly precise and fast inspection device. Customized configurations and technical upgrades are also possible.

According to a repeatedly conducted customer survey, 98% of our customers gladly recommend the AOI products of GOEPEL electronic.

Unique Illumination from Infrared to Ultraviolet

PCBs must be illuminated to shed a light on the dark in an AOI system. You may select between many illumination options and variants to show and improve contrasts.
Wrongly soldered components can be clearly detected, i.e. image evaluation is getting more simple and precise.

The illumination colours in the OptiCon systems can be freely selected from infrared to ultraviolet. It is also possible to control light intensity and directions. The many light variants enable the visibility also of low-contrast components, polarity marks, differences in material and pollutions.

Patented 360° Inspection in 1° Steps at constant Resolution and Definition

With our 360° inspection we check your mounted PCB all around. Resolution and definition remain constant in the entire field-of-view. Each angle of any component becomes visible, and hidden solder joints are not an issue any longer. Imaging in rotating 1° steps enable an ideal inspection for nearly all placement situations and pad geometries.

Program Optimization by means of statistically recorded Inspection Data

As factors of the daily production process, variations in the production process and component changes cannot be avoided. The software in our AOI systems provides high-performance functionalities to solve these problems efficiently.

The statistical evaluation of the single measured data enables comfortable definition of tolerances. Additionally, the integrated reference data base guarantess a stable inspection quality.

Flexible Camera Configurations

Inspection modules for various speeds...

The inspection modules in the AOI system can be configured in three speed levels according to the production process cycle times. Various field-of-view sizes and different methods of image capture make the differences.

Resolution and image quality are identical in all configuration variants, leading to maximum fault detection.

...and for various test tasks

The AOI system utilizes an orthogonal standard camera module for the inspection of SMD components and solder joints as well as THT/THR solder joints. As a supplement for maximum fault detection, the camera module “Chameleon” with patented 360° angled-view inspection in 1° steps can be integrated.

Add-on cameras for the inspection of THT components or microscopic resolutions (down to 3.2 µm) are available. Hence, the system is perfectly suited for your production range.

For measuring tasks in the third dimension, there is an optional laser height measurement system with a resolution of few micro meters.

Company-specific production integration

This AOI system can be individually integrated into your process of PCB assembly. The various error output varieties per screen, label or test protocol are suited for many PCBs production methods.

Furthermore, there are several options for fault display, classification and verification. The system can be utilized as an independent offline repair station.

The system stores the inspection results of the produced PCBs in a particular data base. Unrestricted traceability for statistical fault analysis is also guaranteed.

Traceability – more than just a buzzword

GOEPEL electronic offers many further steps for selecting, sorting and processing. There are also several varieties of serial number detection. Therefore, produced and inspected PCBs are traceable without restriction. All results are stored in the system-specific data base and can be reused. In particular, the SPC module for statistical fault analysis is a helpful tool to identify fault types and their origin in the production process.

The new software version provides additional interfaces for connection to quality, factory and traceability systems compliant with ZVEI standard or customer-specific communication versions.

OptiCon PILOT – a well-balanced Software Concept


Software concept
Software concept

The OptiCon PILOT software provides powerful functions for component recognition, solder joint and short inspection, OCR, colour verification as well as solder paste inspection.

In addition to the intelligent component recognition based on automated characteristic extraction from real images, the solder joint quality is determined by a complex grey value analysis using a range of illumination types.


Reference database

The integrated reference database guarantees safe and documented fault detection at optimised false call rate. It enables the storage of previously detected faults and their verification after test program modifications. In case of inconsistent results after a program check, all corresponding parameters will be displayed. Likewise, the reference database serves as storage for PASS examples to ensure the stability of optimised test programs.
