Malcom Reflow Simulators: VDM-3 Video Capture System

The VDM-3 video capture system uses the built-in viewing windows built into the Malcom reflow simulators to capture video of your simulated reflow process. The system includes a video mixer, which will overlay the temperature/time/profile data over the video to make it easy to track important events in the reflow process. There is an option to add up to 2 cameras for different viewing angles, and each camera is equipped with an optical zoom and manual focus.

Features & Benefits:

  • Receives time, temperature, wettability, profile, and other data from Malcom Reflow Simulators compliant with the VDM-3.
  • Data is overlaid onto the video feeds taken by the video camera(s) in real-time.
  • Built-in scale function for measuring a displayed object.
  • Can display up to 2 video feeds at the same time by connecting up to 2 CCD cameras. Makes it possible to observe your sample from multiple angles.
