Press release date: January 27, 2014

RENTON, WA – Microscan, a global technology leader in barcode, machine vision and lighting solutions, announces the release of a new traceability and inspection system specifically engineered for printed circuit board arrays. PanelScan™ is a user-friendly and easily integrated machine vision solution for capturing 1D and 2D barcode data from multi-array PCBs at the front-end or mid-stream on any SMT line. This integrated system replaces error-prone manual scanning with a solution that allows for inline reading and keeps electronics production lines moving.

Industry leaders within electronics assembly and manufacturing employ barcode traceability technology to enable lean manufacturing, assure quality, and optimize efficient use of resources. Microscan’s barcode and machine vision products are already commonly used throughout automated electronics assemblies to monitor, track, and trace critical data. Microscan’s new PanelScan™ system is uniquely designed to read barcodes on the entire length and width of any PCB array, with an intuitive user interface that allows line operators to quickly train and recall jobs to ensure production is always running. “This solution was designed so that product mix and barcode location changes would no longer require lengthy line shut-downs to reposition, reconfigure, and test barcode readers,” commented Matt Van Bogart, Microscan’s Electronics Vertical Director. “With its unique user-friendly interface and large format imaging capability, the PanelScan™ system is the ideal inline PCB traceability solution for any high mix, low volume electronics manufacturer to ensure their data integrity.”

The PanelScan™ large-area imaging system is available in both Standard and Wide configurations, and includes up to two GigE line scan cameras and lenses, up to two NERLITE® Smart Series LED lights, software, trigger, and cables. The built-in software application utilities allow easy integration into an existing Manufacturing Execution System (MES). In addition, the scalable software allows an upgrade to the full functionality of Microscan’s robust Visionscape® software to access value-added inspection tasks such as absence/presence, measurement, and OCR/OCV.
