Can the IB100 Inspection Booth be used in ambient light or does it need to be in a darkened room?
The single & double inspection booths can be used in ambient light and have UV tube lights built in. the system was designed for inspecting PCB’s with a UV trace present in the coating and as such is black inside. However, additional light shielding may be advisable if the ambient light is very bright as it works better in the dark.
