Malcom Reflow Simulators: VDM-3 Video Capture System

Used in conjunction with Malcom Reflow Simulators, the VDM-2 is a camera system 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 points in your reflow.

Features & Benefits:

  • Receives time, temperature, wettability, profile, and other data from Malcom Reflow Simulators compliant with the VDM-2.
  • 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.
