An illumination system with inner and outer ring illuminators has been specially developed for the VMZ-R series. The system makes possible observations of extremely low-contrast edges which are usually invisible under episcopic illumination by arbitrarily combining illuminations from eight directions. Best for edge enhancement of the contours of bosses, pins, ceramic packages, and similar workpieces.
- Inner ring illuminator (37° from the optical axis)
- This type can be universally used whenever strong illumination from various directions is needed. This illumination also provides a full 50mm working distance.
- Outer ring illuminator (75° from the optical axis)
- This type enables the observation of workpieces that are impossible with lighting at a shallow angle. When not in use, the illuminator retracts, creating more space over the workpiece. When in use, the working distance will be 10mm.
